Thought for the Week Conversion of St Paul

We are taught that Saul, the persecutor of the early followers of Jesus was blinded on the Damascus road and became Paul, the proclaimer of Jesus. The focus on the change in Paul is not the change in name but the change in attitude.Paul brings the understanding of how the Gospel reaches the people. This springs from an encounter with the real hero of the story, the risen Jesus. We are also called by God to share the wonderful news that the risen Jesus, the Son of God, is the Messiah and his kingdom includes all peoples. When all humanity shares this experience of the risen Lord, we will be all one.
