Day of Penance.
Acts 9:1-20. Psalms 116(117). John 6:52-59.

Go out to all the world, and tell the Good News — Psalms 116(117).

‘This man is my chosen instrument.’

Lord, your intervention is Saul’s life was quite unusual. It reveals something of the way in which you enter into my life. Rarely do you intervene and so alter the course of events. Instead you seem content to work through the lives of men and women. You live in each one of us and are dependent upon us to achieve your will.

In your appeal to Saul you identify yourself with those being persecuted. Through Ananias and Saul your will was realised. Jesus, help me to deepen my appreciation of these truly marvelous but mysterious truths. With your grace, may they profoundly enrich my life.
