Sexagesima Sunday 2023
St. Paul, one of the greatest converts in the history of the Church, instructs us on our need for conversion. This conversion of St. Paul could not have happened without the prayers of St. Stephen. We must pray for our friends and our enemies. We must not think that we are the good seed of the Gospel. The word of God has not brought forth fruit a hundredfold in our hearts yet. We wish to be better, we wish to learn, and this is the time for vigilance and growth in the love of God.
