The Conversion of St. Paul

Today's feast day is the Conversion of St. Paul. It never ceases to amaze me how God works in people's hearts. Today let us pray for conversion. Not only for the conversion of of those far from God, but also for our own conversion. Let us pray that our love for God grows stronger and that our relationship with Him goes deeper.

Saul, still breathing murderous threats against the disciples of the Lord, went to the high priest and asked him for letters to the synagogues in Damascus, that, if he should find any men or women who belonged to the Way, he might bring them back to Jerusalem in chains. On his journey, as he was nearing Damascus, a light from the sky suddenly flashed around him. He fell to the ground and heard a voice saying to him, "Saul, Saul, why are you persecuting me?" He said, "Who are you, sir?" The reply came, "I am Jesus, whom you are persecuting. Now get up and go into the city and you will be told what you must do.".
(Acts 9:1-22)
