Chaplain’s Corner | Conversion of St. Paul (January 25, 2015)

img_0334

Today is the feast of the Conversion of St. Paul, while Tuesday is the feast of St. John Chrysostom, Thursday is the feast of St. Francis de Sales, and Saturday is the feast of St. John Bosco. These four feast days warm our hearts with grace during the cold winter days of January. We are still in Bethlehem with the Holy Family, even if the Liturgy remains quiet in this regard. During these days, we meditate on the power of the grace flowing from the Sacred Humanity of the Divine Babe.
In the Conversion of St. Paul, we see the power of grace and the freedom it brings as it commands and rules us. Only God, the Author of freedom, can command in a way that brings more freedom. In taking hold of the life of St. Paul as he traveled on the road to Damascus, the Lord Jesus, Who is God from God, sovereignly commanded Paul’s entire will freely to choose to serve Him. By a singular grace, He not only converted him, but even endowed him with the grace of being a true Apostle, witnessing the Resurrection even after He had ascended into Heaven. In the Conversion of Paul, we learn that grace does not limit or restrain our freedom, but rather that grace sets us free because God is the Creator of our freedom.
