Novena to St Paul in preparation for the Feast of The Conversion of St Paul on 25 January
Blessed John Henry Newman (1801-1890) looked upon conversion as nothing more than a deeper discovery of what we already truly desire. Conversion happens at the level of desire. It is the restoration of what makes us truly human.
Novena to St Paul
DAY ONE – 16 January
Glorious St Paul,
your conversion is a powerful witness to the world
that God loves us and does not give up on us,
no matter how far we stray.
Help me to live a life of ongoing conversion.
True conversion means converting my life to the
design of God, the plan He has for me right now.
Pray that I may love God’s will and providence for me.
In this confidence, I entrust to you, St Paul,
these, my intentions,
(mention your request)
I ask this through Christ, Our Lord, amen.
St Paul, Pray for us!
