st hilary of poitiers on evangelical conversion

Through the relationship with his flesh, access to Christ is open to all, on condition that they divest themselves of their former self (cf. Eph 4: 22), nailing it to the Cross (cf. Col 2: 14); provided we give up our former way of life and convert in order to be buried with him in his baptism, in view of life (cf. Col 1: 12; Rom 6: 4).

-St Hilary of Poitiers, as quoted by His Holiness Benedict XVI
