Conversion of St. Paul

January 25 was the Conversion of St. Paul.  Next to the Feast of the Immaculate Conception, this is one of my favorite feast days.

One thing I find interesting about Paul's conversion is the reaction of those around him.  There were many who had their doubts and did not believe him.  This was certainly understandable given his previous beliefs and behaviors. 

The same is true today.  People change over time.  We all grow and learn from our mistakes.  The question is, "Do we allow others to change or do we hold on to our doubts and keep them in a box?" 

It's understandable to be cautious, but we also have to be open to changes and newness of life.
