With this program, Fr. Mike begins a new series on the life and teaching of Paul of Tarsus, a man on fire with the love of Jesus.
As a very special treat, there is an excerpt from Paul, A Musical on the Life of St. Paul, the play written by Fr. Mike and produced in 2009. This excerpt includes Paul (played by Gabriel Silva) singing Damascus (lyrics by Alicia Rowe, music by Sally Wolf). It ends with the question: “Who are you, Paul of Damascus?”
Fr. Mike then goes on to explain who this man really is, beginning with his complicity in the death of Stephen, his conversion on the way to Damascus, and his missionary journeys.
What does all this have to do with us? Fr. Mike poses some questions to get us started on this journey with the man called Paul.
