In today’s first reading, Jonah, sent by God to warn
the people, storms through Nineveh, frightening the
citizens out of their wits. It works! They repent before
Jonah makes his way through a third of the city, and God
sees “by their actions” how they have turned from evil.
Then we hear Paul telling the Corinthians that “the
world in its present form is passing away.” He calls for a
change of heart. He stops short of telling them to set aside
their everyday lives, but still he urges them—rather
mysteriously—to live as though they aren’t doing the
things they’re doing.
Finally, Jesus stands on the shore and cries, “The
kingdom of God is at hand!” The apostles-to-be abandon
their nets and follow him. Thus in all the readings we hear
an invitation to a radical and immediate change in our
lives. Copyright © J. S. Paluch Co.
The Conversion of St. Paul – January 25th
This weekend, we will make special mention of our
patron St. Paul at the Sunday Masses. We celebrate the
Lord’s day and also our parish remembers the Feast of the
Conversion of St. Paul, a feast day of our parish.
We will show a movie on Sunday afternoon at 1:30pm in
the parish center and have refreshments on sale. Also,
dvd’s of our 50th Anniversary celebration in October will
be sold for $10. Please come and learn about St. Paul and
help to support our church. Let us celebrate the Lord’s
Day and ask St. Paul for his help to be good disciples this
new year.

Prayer and Life Workshop
The community of St. Paul’s Church is invited to
participate in a Prayer and Life Workshop. This is a 15week program that helps you learn and grow in the art of
prayer. In this workshop we learn to enter into a personal
relationship with the Lord through different prayer
methods. By means of a woven pattern of meditations on
the Word, intensive prayer, community reflection and
silencing exercises, the participants of the workshop learn
to overcome, step by step, their inner anguishes and
anxieties, fears and sadness and slowly become filled
with a peace never before imagined.

Personal Intentions
En la primera lectura de hoy, Jonás,
enviado por Dios a dar advertencia al pueblo,
atraviesa Nínive como un huracán,
asustando grandemente a los ciudadanos. ¡Y
funcionó! Ellos se arrepienten antes de que
Jonás cruzara menos de la tercera parte de
la ciudad, y Dios ve “por sus obras” que se
han arrepentido del mal.
Luego oímos a Pablo que le dice a los
corintios que “este mundo que vemos es
pasajero”. El les hace un llamado al cambio
de corazón. Aunque no llega a decirles que
cambien su vida cotidiana, sí les insta ‑un
tanto misteriosamente‑ a vivir como si no
hicieran lo que hacen de costumbre.
Finalmente, Jesús se detiene a la orilla
del lago y grita, “¡El reino de Dios ya está
cerca!” Los futuros apóstoles abandonan sus
redes y le siguen. Así es que en todas las
lecturas oímos una invitación a un cambio
inmediato y radical de nuestras vidas.
