“I love the story of how St. Dominic converted an Albigensian innkeeper…St. Dominic, under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, brought forth convincing arguments in defense of the Catholic faith during the course of the conversation. But ultimately, I am sure that what made his preaching effective, what in the end converted the innkeeper, was that St. Dominic made Jesus Christ known to him through his words and his demeanor. The innkeeper encountered Christ that night and experienced in his heart a joy and freedom that was fulfilled in his hearing.”
