Feast of the Conversion of St. Paul

Conversion of St. Paul by Caravaggio 1601
This beautiful picture of St. Paul by Caravaggio shows the light of Christ descending upon Paul in what would be the turning point of his life. St. Paul had perhaps one of the greatest turnarounds or conversions in history.

Today let us ask ourselves: How is my life going? What areas do I need to turn around 180 degrees? Who are those precious friends and family members or whose conversion to the faith I want to pray? Read the story of St. Paul’s conversion in Acts of the Apostles, chapters 9 and 22, alone or with your family. Talk about how God is calling all of us to conversion every day.
