The Conversion of St. Paul

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

St. Paul… From persecutor to apostle. It is an amazing story of faith and many words have been written about it. I consider St. Paul a patron of mine for many reasons. Not the least of which is because I am convinced that he would be a blogger and social networker if those tools were available to him during his life. I am no St. Paul, but I do live to spread the Gospel via social media.

Back to our story, this being Christianity – this being Catholic Christianity – the story is universal. We are all Saul, we all can be Paul.

How have you been blinded? Knocked down? Turned? How to you preach? Live? Pray?

  1. What a good point, Fran. Indeed, St Paul would be a blogger…
    Blinded… I am afraid I still am to many things.
    Knocked down: regularly.
    Turned: all the time.
    Preaching? I try not to.
    Live: learning to love.
    Pray: hopefully all the time 🙂

  2. Most definitely a Blogger and probably the ‘most defriended’ on Facebook.

    Blinded – every day
    knocked down – as and when
    turned – yes – all the time
    Preach – well, sometimes I am asked to and sometimes I shouldn’t (but one of the reasons I love Paul – I empathise with the fervour)
    Live – finding Love in all things
    Pray – God must have earache on occasions

  3. I always thought God got the voltage wrong when he knocked Paul off that animal he was riding. Should have given him just a tad more of a zap. Might have helped his views on women.
