Conversion of St Paul the Apostle, 25 Jan 2012

Click here to download and listen to this homily (9 minutes) given by Fr Thomas Weise at St Rose of Lima parish in Wrangell, Alaska. Paul, on his way to Damascus intending to do harm to the followers of Jesus, meets the risen Lord in a blight light and voice from Heaven. "Saul, Saul, why are you persecuting me?" Saul replies, "Who are you, sir?" And he said to me, "I am Jesus the Nazorean whom you are persecuting." Paul never forgot this encounter as he took the Gospel to world as Apostle to the Gentiles. He preached and taught that we are all members of the Body of Christ, therefor good or ill done to any member is done to Jesus Christ himself.

Readings: Acts 22:3-16; Psalm 117; Mark 16:15-18
