This news bit dovetails with the commentary on moving special observances to Sundays in parishes. In 2009, 25 January will fall on a Sunday. As part of the special Pauline year, the day’s feast of Conversion of Paul may be observed instead of the Ordinary Sunday. Pope Benedict says so.
Off the top of your heads, are you making enough of an effort in the Pauline year to see your parish switching to the feast? Or won’t you bother with much of it?
Speaking for myself, I have my new musical on Saint Paul bookended with “dialogues” with Stephen the Protomartyr. In the prologue, I have Stephen’s final words (Acts 7:56-60) intertwined with Paul’s self-condemnation (Acts 22:3ff). At the end, Stephen is there to welcome the martyred Paul into heaven.
