“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – Acts 9:4-5

.

TODAY’S WORD…

.

He fell to the ground and heard a voice saying to him,

“Saul! Saul! Why are you persecuting me?”

“Who are you, Lord?” Saul asked.

And the voice replied,

“I am Jesus, the one you are persecuting!”

.

– Acts 9:4-5 (NLT)

REFLECTION…

.

If only we too would stop every time we hear that inner voice.

If only we too would stop and allow Christ to bring us to a proper sense of our own state and conduct.

By doing so, we too would place ourselves wholly at His mercy,

and ask Him what He wants us to do.

.

God directs the humble of heart.

QUOTE…

.

"Every religious proposal begins by telling men what they must do to save themselves or to obtain ‘illumination,’

Christianity does not begin by telling men what they must do,

but what God has done for them in Christ Jesus.

Christianity is the religion of grace.

.

In this light Paul’s conversion appears to us as the model of true Christian conversion

that consists first of all in accepting Christ,

in ‘turning’ to Him through faith.

It is a finding, not a giving up.

.

Jesus does not say: A man sold all he had and began to look for a hidden treasure;

He said: A man found a treasure and because of this sold everything."

.

– Fr. Raniero Cantalamessa
