The Conversion of St. Paul


Dear Children!


"Dear Children! This time also I am inviting you to prayer. Pray that you might be able to comprehend what God desires to tell you through my presence and through the messages I am giving you. I desire to draw you ever closer to Jesus and to His wounded heart that you might be able to comprehend the immeasurable love which gave itself for each one of you. Therefore, dear children, pray that from your heart would flow a fountain of love to every person both to the one who hates you and to the one who despises you. That way you will be able through Jesus' love to overcome all the misery in this world of sorrows, which is without hope for those who do not know Jesus. I am with you and I love you with the immeasurable love of Jesus. Thank you for all your sacrifices and prayers. Pray so I might be able to help you still more. Your prayers are necessary to me. Thank you for having responded to my call."(November 25, 1991)


Today we celebrate the dramatic conversion of St. Paul, on his way to Damascus. St. Paul hated Christians. He was seeking to imprison them and put them to death. Jesus' followers had every right to be afraid of Paul. But we know that they must have been praying for him and forgiving him. St. Stephen forgave him, as he was being stoned to death at Paul's consent. It was this forgiveness, sacrifice, and intercessory prayer that won St. Paul's conversion. And he became a foundation stone of the Church.


Today, Our Lady is calling us to bring about similar dramatic conversions, even in those who hate us and despise us. The process is the same. We witness to Jesus, stay firm in our faith, and forgive our enemies. As we pray for them, they will be snatched from the enemy and brought into the safety of God's family. This is what we all want for every one of them.


What an amazing God we have!!! He loves as no other, and calls us into that love. Incredible!!


In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!
