Year of St. Paul

The Pope has declared the next year to be a celebration of St. Paul.

St. Paul certainly isn't one of the Saints who is forgotten and neglected, but some of his teaching certainly isn't understood or well-received.

An emphasis on learning what St. Paul taught in his letters would be a good start for each of us.

In other news, the Chinese government is planning on dynamiting a Marian shrine because of "illegal religious activity".

St. Paul pray for those Christians still being persecuted.
The word of the Lord spread through the whole region. But the Jews incited the God-fearing women of high standing and the leading men of the city. They stirred up persecution against Paul and Barnabas, and expelled them from their region. So they shook the dust from their feet in protest against them and went to Iconium. And the disciples were filled with joy and with the Holy Spirit. - Acts 13: 49-52
