Feast of the Conversion of Saint Paul, Apostle

Gospel Reading: MK 16:15-18

The Gospel (Mk 16:15-18) is appropriate on the feast of St Paul. His conversion prepared him to become an apostle to the Gentiles. His long journeys led him to cover much of the territory that comprised the Roman Empire. He preached and healed, founded and supported local communities. His life teaches us that mission (outreach) is not an option. The Church is missionary of its very nature. 
 
Conversion is not something that only happens once in a lifetime. It is something that can happen to us several times in the course of our lives. Let us be ready to answer whenever the Lord calls us to something great.
 
The Gospel is also presented as the last instruction of Jesus to His disciples before He ascended into Heaven. He is also addressing all of us baptized believers. Each one of us is called by the Lord to "Go and proclaim the good news" of the long-awaited reign of God - the good news of God's love and will or dream for us.
