This is a powerful conversion story http://www.lifesitenews.com/ldn/2010/may/10052001.html
Then, at the end of those three days, something happened that changed her life forever. “It was the third day, the sixth hour of screaming. We were about to wrap up yet again. I was basically done screaming, there was a pause, and then the monk looked up and said to me “you have no idea, absolutely no idea how much God loves you; He made you out of nothing, he knows you, you have no idea how much he loves you, His daughter. So don’t feel ashamed, let it all go. Give it up, give it all up, give your life up to Him … He loves you so much.”
It is tragic that there are so many people who do not know that God loves them. I know, from personal experience, that telling people that God loves them and knows them is the most powerful invitation to conversion.
