The conversion of the Apostle Paul - one of the central events in the history of the Church

On 25. January we celebrate the event that overtook Saul on his journey to Damascus to persecute the Christians there. He was blinded by a vision and a heavenly voice spoke to him: "Saul, Saul, why do you persecute me?" Saul asked: "Who are you, Lord??" And he replied: "I am Jesus, whom you are persecuting, but rise and enter the city and you will be told what you are to do." (Acts 9:4-6)

 

Thus Saul became Paul and this is celebrated with a feast in the Catholic Church. <link http: en.wikipedia.org wiki conversion_of_paul_the_apostle>Read more.
