Courageous Pauline Initiative in Pakistan

The FSPs of Pakistan celebrated the Feast of the Conversion of St. Paul by means of a very meaningful and courageous initiative that was strongly supported by the local bishops and priests and also by our Protestant brothers and sisters. The initiative was meaningful because it consisted of the launch of a new VCD and DVD on the Apostle Paul. It was courageous, given the delicate situation of the country at this moment. But the fortitude and zeal of our sisters helped them conquer every fear. In just one morning, they disseminated 350 copies in Urdu in the parishes they visited in Lahore, Rawalpindi and Karachi!
Their juniors, novices and aspirants were ecstatic. In fact, all our sisters were surprised by the enthusiasm of the people, who joyfully welcomed the chance to get to better know the great Apostle of the Gentiles.
