The conversion of St. Paul is an example of how God always surprises us. No one expected Paul to becoming an apostle of Jesus – least of all him. God shocks us out of our complacency.

Paul responds to God’s call readily and he brings the Good News to the Gentiles. A zealot becomes a missionary of inclusion. God is always ready to surprise us.

O gracious God, thank you for the surprise of the conversion of St. Paul. May I be ready today for You to surprise me, too.
