The modern city of Corinth was re-built in a slightly different place from the city that St. Paul knew after an earthquake. In the ruins of the ancient city you can see the procounsel’s seat, the place where Gallio would have presided. Standing in front of the seat you are literally standing in the footsteps of St. Paul. At the entrance of the cathedral in modern Corinth there is a list of the more than 200 bishops who have served in Corinth, with Paul as the first name on the list. These are vivid reminders that our faith is meant to be lived in the world. Not for us flights up to the seventh heavens but Christians thrive in history and trust in God’s salvific plan.
