Letters From a Pastor to His People

  • St. Paul the Equestrian 22 January 2017 | By

    Dear Parishioners,

    This upcoming Wednesday, January 25th is a very interesting feast day in our Church. We celebrate ‘The Conversion of Saint Paul the Apostle.’ I'm sure you're all familiar with the story of how Saul fell off his horse on the road to Damascus. If not, read Acts 9:1-22. It's interesting that a feast day is centered around a saint's conversion. Typically a feast day is about the saint's entire life, and is celebrated on the supposed date of the individual's death or birth. Paul does have another feast day—June 29th—but this particular event in Paul's life was so monumental the Church believed it necessary to give it a separate feast. Paul's conversion was a miracle and, arguably, the most important miracle in history. Without Paul Catholicism does not spread to Europe and broaden. It remains a progressive sect of Judaism confined to Palestine. Much of our set of beliefs, not to mention much of our Bible, does not exist without the man formerly known as Saul.
