The Spirituality of Saint Paul: Following Jesus by Imitating Paul
ANNUAL LECTURE IN HONOR OF RICHARD J. CLIFFORD, S.J.
April 11, 2018
Presenter: Rev. Frank J. Matera
Throughout his letters, Saint Paul encourages his converts to imitate him; for in him they have a model of what it means to follow Christ. The model of the Christian life Paul presents to his converts reveals a spirituality grounded in the Paschal Mystery of Christ’s death and resurrection, whereby believers are conformed to the crucified Christ and sanctified by God’s grace in Christ through the power of God’s Spirit.
