Assembly – Conversion of Saul

In the name of the +Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen

I know you have been thinking about Goodies and Baddies. Here is a video of some superheroes that I know some of you have seen…

Every superhero has a nemesis: an archenemy

Batman has the Joker

Superman has Lex Luthor

Jesus Christ (the only one with real superpowers) had… St. Paul

St Paul? Surely not? Yes, when St Paul was a young man called Saul, he really thought that he was the nemesis of Jesus… and proceed to tell the story of Saul using this video without the audio

God took Saul, and used his powerfully for his work to spread the Gospel. The former hater of Jesus and his early Church became it’s greatest missionary. No matter what you have done in the past, or think yopu have done; no matter how little you think of yourself, God will use you powerfully for his work, if you only let him.

Let us pray… that God will inspire and guide us…

and we summarise our prayer as Christ himself has taught us…

Our Father…

Blessing – the best way to start a week

Go in peace to love and serve the Lord.
