January 25 – Saint Paul the Apostle


Loving Savior, on this the Feast Day of Saint Paul the Apostle, I ask for a share in his passionate enthusiasm for spreading the Gospel.  You saved him from the belief that Christians were heretics; help me to resist judging and persecuting others out of a lack of understanding their beliefs, and teach me how to turn people away from wrong beliefs to You—Who are the Way and the Truth.  Bless me with the same boldness and conviction and leadership that Saint Paul the Apostle had, with words provided by the Holy Spirit.  And inspire all Christians to have this same zeal for sharing their faith.  Saint Paul, pray for us.  Amen.

Saint Paul (c. 5 64/65 A.D.)

quoteRemember this: Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously. Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. 8And God is able to bless you abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work.” (2 Corinthians 9:6-8 NIV)

Saint Dwynwen (d. 460)
