Feast of the Conversion of St. Paul, Apostle


Jesus said that “these signs will accompany those who believe: in my name they will drive out demons, they will speak new languages.” Whenever I heard this gospel reading and those very words of Jesus, I was trying to take them literally. But then I was disappointed because my faith in Jesus Christ did not make me a polyglot, nor can I drive out demons. Jesus also said that those who believe “if they drink any deadly thing, it will not harm them.” Well, I wouldn’t even try! Also, Jesus’ followers “will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover” And no, I don’t have the power to do that. So, what did Jesus mean? Today I believe that those who believe in the Son of God and follow Him must become a new people. We must speak a new language, the language of love, that would allow us to help others, to pray for them and with them. We must believe that even if something causes us harm in this life, there is a new life to come --  eternal life, without any pain.
