Today, for a while at least, we say goodbye to Paul and John.
At the conclusion of his "Acts Of The Apostles" St.Luke left Paul under "house arrest" in Rome, where after two years, Paul would suffer a crucifixion brought about by his Jewish foes.
We leave John, supposedly in the company of Mary. He was compiling his account of incidents from the life of Jesus. He said he chose only those stories that showed how Jesus was the Christ, the Son of God, so that by believing in him we might have life.
