He said, "Who are you, sir?"
The reply came, "I am Jesus, whom you are persecuting.
Now get up and go into the city and you will be told what you must do."
The men who were traveling with him stood speechless,
for they heard the voice but could see no one.
Acts 9:5-7

My God, you couldn't have done it any better than this. To speak to Saul in front of a few witnesses, where none of them could see you. Just this bright blinding light that only affected Saul. Yet the others who were with Saul heard your voice too. The extent you go to bring your lost sheep back to you.

Saul now named Paul, is a key witness of transformation, as are those who witnessed his change. We have the apostles who underwent their own transformation, while Jesus was with them. Now we have one of the first accounts of a witnessed one.

Today in our day, should this account happen, would we realize the Divine? We are reading of an actual account of the Divine. Just as we are given many accounts of Jesus being seen after His death.

For us we are lucky to have the written accounts, even better is to have the living flesh and blood, transformed by Jesus himself via the hands of his chosen priests handed down from generation to generation. Where Jesus let us know by his death that he would be with us in the very Bread of Life. He who believes in me will have eternal life. It is in this very belief of the Eucharist, that Jesus is within, that we find this eternal life.
