Love defeats sin,
the spiritual crime of these times

Feast of the Conversion of Saint Paul
In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.
The Feast of the Conversion of St Paul is a day of changeover for all the Christians who want to change their life, who want to give priority to God, who want to replace their ‘self’ with God, allowing the Love made flesh to unseat all men and women from the horse of their certainties and human convictions.
This is what St Paul teaches us; this is what this Feast transmits to us: his conversion, that is the example for all those who, from being non-Christians, wish to become so; for all those who, although Christians but only in formality and appearance, must substantially become authentic Christians by living Christ and his teachings as the only primary Good, strongly rejecting all that is sin. This is the greatest spiritual crime for all Christians: sin, that deprives the soul of eternal life, that breaks the communion with Christ, He who alone gives life. Those who want to be true Christians must flee from sin with all their might, no ifs, no buts, and no ambiguities; not playing with words, because the eternal life is not a game nor a gift, but it is the most beautiful and most important conquest, for which it is worth to live and bear any kind of sacrifice.
Here is the example of Mary, who always remained faithful to God, never thinking She was deceived. Here is the example of this great Saint, who from Saul became Paul, who from being great for the world, for the religion of that time and for that temple, has wanted to become and be called ‘the smallest’, in order to show that the greatness in this world can only be given by Jesus, who has come down again in the New Jerusalem so that all those who want to live as true Christians may set off again and live the Church, wanted by the Father and entrusted to the Son, so that Jesus may be the King of a great people and lead all His faithful sons to experience the perfect communion with the Heart of the Father for eternity.
This is the time to manifest all this: Christ, the Tree of Life, and His sons, the holy fruits of His Love. Now Paul dwells in the New Jerusalem and by his living spirit he spurs us so that each of us, by our own example and testimony of life, may bring Christ, the King of Life, to all peoples, so that many may have Life for eternity, in Christ and in Mary.
In the name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.
