Paul's conversion is as dramatic a turning point as any in history. Whatever happened on the road to Damascus, the experience was powerful enough to turn the infant Church's most passionate opponent into its champion.
Paul's considerable knowledge of Jewish Law helped to explain how Jesus could be the Christ, and his familiarity with gentile culture made countless converts throughout the Roman Empire. His tireless preaching and writing, extensive travels and personal sacrifice offer a lasting testament and guide to the church. His life is a witness that conversion is not a one-time event, but a lifetime of commitment.
Let Saint Paul: Called to Conversion provide inspiration for your next armchair retreat or small group discussion.
