After Onesimus' conversion, St. Paul sent him back to his master, Philemon, who was the Apostles friend. He sent Philemon a letter, in which he wrote:
"I plead with you for my own son, for Onesimus. . . .
I am sending him back to you. Welcome him as though he were my very heart."
Onesimus returned home and was set free. Later, he went back to St. Paul and became his faithful helper. St. Paul made Onesimus a priest and then Bishop of Ephesus. During the persecutions, he was brought in chains to Rome and there stoned to death.
If we ever should hurt anyone in any way, let us ask forgiveness right away. God will he pleased to see that we are sorry and He will bless us as He did Onesimus.
