"All-controlling central desire"

The former Protestant minister, Scott Hahn, tells how...

"Out of consuming curiosity I went to Mass one day.  I sat there looking at all these people.  I looked at their devotion, their sincerity taking time out in the middle of the day to worship; and I watched how, during the consecration, their heads were lowered, their lips were moving, their hearts were stirring. 

I went back the next day, and the next, and the next.  Within a week or two I had fallen head over heels in love with the Mass.  I was transformed.  The Eucharist became, in a sense, the all-controlling central desire of my life!  I can't describe to you the passionate thirst and hunger that came over me day after day as I saw all of these people going up and being fed with the Body and Blood of our Lord!"

Dr Hahn entered the Catholic Church at the Easter Vigil, 1986.
