The Conversion of Saint Paul the Apostle
Dear Family of Mary!
One of the main messages of Our Lady of Medjugorje is conversion. Conversion is the process of turning our hearts and lives towards God and His will for us, much like a flower turns towards the sun from which it draws its strength for life. God's will is our life source. It is not optional for life, it is life! And so, Our Lady urges us to convert with all our hearts so that we will live! Seeking God's will is nothing more than seeking God Himself as our greatest and only good. Conversion is that daily process of seeking God.
As we celebrate the dramatic and powerful conversion of Saint Paul the Apostle, maybe we can listen to some of Our Lady's messages about conversion. Through Saint Paul's intercession, we may be able to respond to her call to convert!
"Dear children! Today I invite you to prayer because only in prayer can you understand my coming here. The Holy Spirit will enlighten you to understand that you must convert. Little children, I wish to make of you a most beautiful bouquet prepared for eternity but you do not accept the way of conversion, the way of salvation that I am offering you through these apparitions. Little children, pray, convert your hearts and come closer to me. May good overcome evil. I love you and bless you. Thank you for having responded to my call." (July 25, 1995)
"Dear children! Today I invite you to open yourselves to God the Creator, so that He changes you. Little children, you are dear to me. I love you all and I call you to be closer to me and that your love towards my Immaculate Heart be more fervent. I wish to renew you and lead you with my Heart to the Heart of Jesus, which still today suffers for you and calls you to conversion and renewal. Through you, I wish to renew the world. Comprehend, little children, that you are today the salt of the earth and the light of the world. Little children, I invite you and I love you and in a special way implore: Convert! Thank you for having responded to my call." (October 25, 1996)
"Dear children! I call you all to conversion of heart. Decide, as in the first days of my coming here, for a complete change of your life. In this way, little children, you will have the strength to kneel and to open your hearts before God. God will hear your prayers and answer them. Before God, I intercede for each of you. Thank you for having responded to my call." (August 25, 2004)
"Dear children! Nature is awakening and on the trees the first buds are seen which will bring most beautiful flowers and fruit. I desire that you also, little children, work on your conversion and that you be those who witness with their life, so that your example may be a sign and an incentive for conversion to others. I am with you and before my Son Jesus I intercede for your conversion. Thank you for having responded to my call." (February 25, 2011)
In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!
