**Conclusion: St. Paul’s Conversion is a type of the future Reunion of Christians **
**(return of all non-Catholics to Catholic Church) **
Saul was a Pharisee and he visicously persecuted the children of God, the followers of Jesus. But there came a time when he was knocked off his horse. He was shown the error of his self-righteous ways by Christ, his heart was softened, and he became one of the greatest evangelists of human history.
In a similar vein, in 1950, on the very day of the solemn dogmatic proclamation of the Assumption by the Pope, an Italian man named Bruno, was on the very site in Rome where St. Paul was martyred ,and he was preparing to murder the Pope. In brief, he had always been a violent man and had abused his dear humble, Catholic wife. Earlier, through much prodding, she had finally persuaded Bruno to do the First Friday devotions that Jesus promised final perseverance to, who would Confess and receive the Holy Eucharist on 9 consecutive First Fridays (per the visions of St. Margaret Mary Alocoque of the late 1600’s).
But at some point after completing these devotions, Bruno was led away into extreme, hard hearted Protestant Fundamentalism and he violently cast aside his Marian devotions. He began to constantly and vehemently deny all of the Traditional beliefs about Mary: Mary was NOT immaculately conceived, she was NOT Assumed into heaven, she was NOT perpetually a Virgin. So again, on this very day in 1950, he was on this very site of St. Paul’s death and preparing to murder the Pope before he proclaimed the wondrous dogma of Mary’s Assumption. His children were playing near a grotto when they ran to him and told him that there was a beautiful lady there.
He went, and then Mary reached out her heavenly arms and said, “Come, now, my child and stop this nonsense, what you have done has saved you (First Fridays)”, and with that, she proceeded to, according to Bruno, remove what were like scales from his eyes, and then he could behold her beauty. She then went on to proceed to reinforce to him that all that Mother Church said of her was true. After that miraculous appearance, Bruno’s heart was softened and he came back to Catholicism and worked in love and dilligence to bring Fundamentalists back to the Church.
So then, here’s the conclusion: the modern Fundamentalists presume that they will not suffer the chastisement, that they will be “raptured away” (because Christ is Risen! The cross is gone), and they angrily blaspheme Mary and assault her children. So when the Minor Chastisement comes and millions of hard-hearted Fundamentalists are plunged into horrors unthinkable, when they are not raptured, and come to realize that suffering has merit and that we can help save people through uniting our sufferings with Christ (Collossians: “I fill up in my flesh what is lacking in the sufferings of Christ”), it will be MARY, the ever glorious and perpetual Virgin, the Mother of God, the Spouse of the Holy Spirit, the most humble of all daughters of God, who shall KNOCK the Fundamentalists off their horse and pull the scales from their eyes, even as they were from St. Paul.
Mary, shall say to them, “NT Saul, NT Saul, why do you persecute Me?”
And the Fundamentalists shall say to Her, “Who are you, holy Lady?”
And she shall respond, “I am your MOTHER, whom you persecute!”
Praise the Lord Jesus Christ, his Catholic mystics have prophesied of the Reunion of Christians after the minor apostasy and tribulation. Will this not be how it takes place?
So it is that the New Eve shares in the Redemptive actions of Her Son, the New Adam.
