ILL. An old legend has it that a wealthy merchant of the 1st Century who wanted to meet the Apostle Paul encountered Timothy, who arranged a visit for him with Paul who, at that time, was a prisoner in Rome.


Stepping inside the cell, the merchant was surprised to find a rather old man, physically frail, but whose serenity & magnetism challenged the visitor. They talked for hours. Finally the merchant left with Paul’s blessing.


Outside the prison, he asked Timothy, "What is the secret of his serenity & power? I have never seen anything like it before." "Did you not guess?" replied Timothy. "Paul is in love."


The merchant looked bewildered. "In love?" "Yes," Timothy answered, "Paul is in love with Jesus Christ." The merchant looked even more bewildered. "Is that all?" Smiling, Timothy replied, "Sir, that is everything."
