(The Conversion of St. Paul, Apostle)
Jesus appeared to the Eleven and said to them: “Go into the whole world and proclaim the Gospel to every creature. Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved; Mk_16:15-18
Sometimes, beloved, it takes a radical transformation to believe, as it did with St. Paul. Sometimes we are handed down that belief from family or friends. And sometimes we just have to work it out the hard way: learn and experience, rise and fall, and with each new step we grow in that faith, in that belief. Jesus wants everyone to be “saved.” Sometimes it just takes a little faith. If we had been baptized, that seed of faith has been planted in us. Now, it’s time to help it grow!
