Inspiring Catholic Reflection for the Day

The conversion of Paul is an encouraging and challenging example for all of us in getting converted any time and anyhow. It is never late and it is never hopeless. At no moment, we can say that it is no use now; about no one, we can say that it is no hope. It is the power of God’s will and plans. All that is needed is transparency and receptivity toward God’s power and plan.

Paul’s conversion was not a mere change of religion or tradition. It is a change of a whole way of life, a change of loyalty and adherence, a change from objects like laws to practice and implement, to the subject of the person of Jesus, and to testify to his mission. It is a new bonding. It is an about-turn. There are no compromises. There are no half-measures. It is a change of perspective, orientation, conviction, and commitment. It is a total surrender to the person and mission of Jesus.

Thus, Paul’s conversion is both a captivating testimony and a tall challenge to move away constantly from being an aggressor and transgressor of the way of the Lord, to become a humble receiver, a joyful bearer, and a zealous promoter of the Lord.

It is a turning away from persecutor to the persecuted; from an enemy to a friend; from slavery to law to the freedom of the spirit; from a dry observance of the law to a fertile walking by the spirit; from a misguided passion for truths to an illumined passion for the truth, that is Jesus; from false adherence to true conviction; from excessive self-sufficiency to a profound self-insufficiency; from an arrogant self-complacency to a humble self-surrender; from law to faith; from doctrines to person; from a follower of religion to a follower of a way of life; from a well-informed person to a totally transformed person; from a proponent of laws to a prophet of the person of Jesus Christ; from a deep searching frustration to a discovered satisfaction.

In Paul’s conversion, we are made to rediscover that true conversion is not to expect a sudden intervention from heaven, but consists of daily cultivation of grace, imitation of the values of Christ, and transformation into his person.

Direction For Life

O great St Paul, constantly rekindle in us the same fire of passionate love for the Lord and unreserved dedication to work for him.
