As I have been writing about his epistles, it is worth noting that, in the Catholic and Anglican churches, January 25 is the feast day commemorating the Conversion of St Paul the Apostle.

My posts on this dramatic, divinely-guided event follow:

Part 1 of Acts 9:1-9: Saul’s — St Paul’s — conversion

Part 2 of Acts 9:1-9: Saul’s — St Paul’s — conversion (includes interesting info from John MacArthur on his own conversion)

Acts 9:10-19 — when scales fell from the eyes of Saul of Tarsus (final part of St Paul’s conversion story)

He ended up suffering much physical persecution and much emotional trauma as he focused so much on the spiritual well being of his thousands of converts. He wept often for them and he prayed constantly for our Lord’s continuing guidance.

St Paul truly was the greatest Apostle.
