The Conversion of Saint Paul

Today the Church celebrates the Feast of the Conversion of Saint Paul, a remembrance of how a man of Tarsus named Saul, a former persecutor of the early Christian church, was led by God’s grace to become one of its chief preachers. The risen Christ appeared to Paul on the road to Damascus and called him to proclaim the Gospel.

Prayer of the Day
Almighty God, you caused the light of the gospel to shine throughout the world through the preaching of your servant Saint Paul. May we, who celebrate his wonderful conversion, follow him in bearing witness to your truth. We make our prayer through your Son, Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and ever, and unto ages of ages. Amen.
