In honor of today’s first reading (Acts 9:1-20), which tells the story of the conversion of St. Paul, here are some St. Paul quotes to uplift you on this Friday of the Third Week of Easter:
“Christ loved the church and handed himself over for her to sanctify her, cleansing her by the bath of water with the word, that he might present to himself the church in splendor, without spot or wrinkle or any such thing, that she might be holy and without blemish” (Eph 5:25-27).
“Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good” (Rom 12:21).
“We know that all things work for good for those who love God, who are called according to his purpose” (Rom 8:28).
“If God is for us, who is against us? He who did not spare his own Son but gave him up for us all, will he not also give us all things with him?” (Rom 8:31-32).
“[The Lord] said to me, ‘My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness’” (2 Cor 12:9).
