Sunday Sermon, July 8 -- The Life and Ministry of St Paul (Father Ryan Erlenbush, Corpus Christi Parish)

St Paul's personality and spirit come to life in his Second Letter to the Corinthians. We will consider the life and ministry of the "Apostle to the Gentiles" as well as the meaning of the "thorn in the flesh" and how St Paul inspires us today.

Born in Tarsus, Saul or Paul (he had both Hebrew and Roman names) was educated in the Law and was among the Pharisees. After persecuting the Christian Church, he was converted when our Lord appeared to him on his way to Damascus. St Paul engaged in three great missionary journeys prior to his first arrest and imprisonment. Having been released, he continued in his preaching and ministry until his second arrest which ended with his martyrdom on 29 June AD 67.
