St. Paul opened his Letter to the Romans with a formal introduction.

Monday, 10/12/15

St. Paul had never been to Rome, but in preparation for going there, he wrote this letter to introduce himself to its Christian community.

He wrote a most formal introduction for himself, saying that he had been set apart for the task of announcing to the Gentiles the good news concerning Jesus, whose coming had been prophesied by all the prophets.

The good news is no other than this, that Jesus, by rising from the dead, has conquered death for himself and for his followers even throughout the Gentile world.

If you were ordered to compose a formal introduction for yourself, how would you describe the task set before you in this life of yours?
