Commentary on the Gospel of

Fr. Johnson Joseph Thurackal CMF

Note how Paul’s priorities change after his transforming experience on the Damascus road.  What was once important is now rendered useless. What he once considered a strength is now a weakness, and vice versa.  In fact, he recognizes that because of his weaknesses, he has a right to stake a claim on Christ’s attention.

Paul’s God-experience gives him single-minded focus, and that is explicated in the Gospel reading. He now serves only one master, the Christ; his attention and trust are not on physical needs but on God; and all this surrender in trust stems from the knowledge that he is precious to God.

I pray for the gift of such a God-experience.
