Conversion of St. Paul
Today, January 25, is the Feast of the Conversion of St. Paul. I regard this as a feast day of some importance for all those who suffer from their own, or others', addictions. We all need to be in a state of conversion. Conversion is a lifelong process.
The Collect prayer from the Mass for this feast:
O God, who taught the whole world
through the preaching of the blessed Apostle Paul,
draw us, we pray, nearer to you
through the example of him whose conversion we celebrate today,
and so make us witnesses to your truth in the world.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever.
May the Lord bless us, protect us from all evil and bring us to everlasting life. Amen.
Take a moment to treasure up all these things and ponder them in your heart (cf Luke 2,19)
Let your speech always be gracious, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how you ought to answer everyone. Col 4:6
