A Testimony to Remember

This week, we remember the conversion of St. Paul. His conversion story is one to end all others, that’s for certain!

Acts 26:9-21 and Galatians 1:11-24 recount Paul’s dramatic conversion. Seeing the transformation from a persecuter to an eventual martyr is a thrilling turn of events.

It’s easy to think that these Road to Damascus stories only happened a long time ago. However, these types of conversions have happened throughout Christian history, right up to today.

From early converts from paganism to followers of modern religions who convert, complete changes of heart make up a large part of the history of Christianity. This important work of transformation still continues today.

The Church has had several Road to Damascus moments ever since the time of the Apostles. From Jewish believers who accepted the Gentiles to Christians of today who embrace outcasts, these conversion stories continue to shape our experiences as Christians.
