I am so grateful to have been given the gift to walk the steps of the great St. Paul!
Here’s a great memory for the books! Lydia of Thyatira was the first baptized by Saint Paul (Acts 16:13-15) & this historical event in Christianity took place in Philippi. Today, during Mass we all renewed our baptismal promises and were sprinkled with water at the place where Paul baptized Lydia and her whole family. Praised be Jesus Christ! Such a great gift to renew my commitment to Jesus & to receive him here at the place where Paul began his whole mission!
