prayer diary Monday 25 January 2016 (The Conversion of St Paul)

Jesus said: 'everyone who has left houses or brothers or sisters or father or mother or children or fields, for my name’s sake, will receive a hundredfold, and will inherit eternal life.' 
Matthew 19.29

St Paul, a man of position and power in his society, gave it all up for the sake of the Gospel. But he counted it as naught. He was rewarded in this life by becoming instead part of the great family that is the Church; and in the next with eternal life.
