Preach It, Paul!

It’s the Feast of the Conversion of St. Paul so, once again, I share my Paul entry to commemorate! God bless!

In the Acts of the Apostles, Chapter 17, St. Paul gives a rousing set of remarks to the people of Athens. It’s filled with good things, but my favorite sentence (and not just in this Book, but anywhere) is “For in him we live and move and have our being.”

St. Paul did have a way with words. In fact he sometimes had too much of a way and in some of his letters he leaves me confused as I try to follow his run on sentences! But that’s a story for another time. What I found interesting and even surprising was that these words, of which I am so fond, did not originate with St. Paul. I did notice that the sentence is in single quotes and Paul does even say that “some of your own poets have said” those immortal words. Huh. I never really heard that before.
