Martyrdom
 
The opening of the Covenant to everyone
The last words of Paul in the Roman capital, as recorded in Acts, were an appeal to the Jews. At the end of his mission, he whom the Lord had chosen as the Apostle of the Nations did not want to forget ‘the least of my brothers’ (Mt 25:40) ‘I am bound in chains .. for the sake of him for whom the people of Israel hope.’ Paul made a last, urgent appeal for the ‘conversion’ of his people, for the same upheaval that he had experienced: from now on, God’s Covenant is open to all.
 
Paul’s death is not the end of the story: on the contrary, it is the development of Christianity and of the Good News spread far and wide by the great witness to the Risen Christ, who became in his likeness ‘A Light for the Nations.’(Is 49:6; Acts 13:47)
