Paul tells the story: Daily Mass Homily--Thursday, April 30th, 2015
(Listen to this homily here).
Our reading from Acts features a sermon by St. Paul. In the span of about ten verses, Paul covers all of salvation history. I mean, he goes from Israel in Egypt to the judges and prophets (Samuel) to the monarchy to John the Baptist.
What is Paul doing? He is telling the story of salvation history. He quickly showed how the men and women to which he was preaching were connected with the Israelites of old. All of this was to show how God continues to unfold his plan of salvation to the nations.
This begs the question—do you know our story? Not only this, but also, could you quickly tell our story to others?At every Mass, we reflect on our story in the Scriptures. Continue to learn about our story so you may share it more easily with all you meet.
