Thoughts on Paul

For the year of St. Paul, I'll be posting some thoughts on St. Paul by our Founder, Blessed James Alberione. They were collected by Sr Susan Helen Wallace, FSP

Saul Becomes Paul

“St. Paul – at first Saul, the enemy of Jesus – becomes his close friend, to the point of living of him: ‘Christ … lives in me’ (Gal 2:20).”

“All of St. Paul’s power is in Jesus Christ.

As in his life, so it was in prayer.

He affirms, ‘… It is no longer I who live, but it is Christ who lives in me’ (Gal 2:20) and ‘For to me, living is Christ….’ (Phil 1:21). He only knows Jesus, and of Jesus his preaching is full.”
