Conviction and Proclamation

Today we celebrate St. Paul’s Conversion on the road to Damascus. For some it is a dramatic out of the blue moment, when Jesus revealed Himself to Paul. Others see it as a process; probably begun even as he watched St. Stephen at his martyrdom. It is remarkable, that Saul the persecutor in chief became the leading proclaimer of the faith and the teacher of the faith. These require conviction, and faith. And all these are there to be seen in St. Paul.
