Quote on Renewing Your Mind by Michael O'Brien

Saint Paul writes in Romans 12:2, "Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind." But how can the mind be renewed if it is continually reeling under a bombardment of false words and images? The mind is not renewed simply by packing more and more into it; rather it is renewed by grace and by habits of discernment and by a sincere search for what is good and beautiful and true.

(p. 165 of A Landscape With Dragons by Michael O'Brien)
