About Today Readings

The Conversion of St Paul.
Acts 22:3-16. Psalm 116(117):1-2. Mark 16:15-18.

Go out to all the world, and tell the Good News – Psalm 116(117):1-2.

‘What am I to do, Lord?’

Paul’s dramatic conversion on the way to Damascus and his loving reception among the Christian community were the antithesis of his earlier trailblazing campaign. His introduction to the Way gave him a completely new perspective on the Jesus he had been persecuting.

Paul’s proclamation of the Gospel concentrated on the love and dedication of the Lord Jesus, even to his death on the cross. His experience of the Risen Lord changed everything: ‘I pray that you may have the power to comprehend, with all the saints, what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge’ (Ephesians 3:18-19).
