Today we celebrate the Feast of the Conversion of Saint Paul, the event in which the ‘most ferocious enemy of the Church became its most zealous son and missionary’. How is Paul’s conversion described in the New Testament, in his own words and in the accounts in the Acts of the Apostles? Marcel Uwineza SJ looks closely at how Paul and Luke portray the change affected in Paul on the Damascus Road.
Bishop John Arnold describes St Paul's conversion as a long journey in faith, rather than a singular event on the road to Damascus, and looks at what we can learn from this journey.
25 January is the feast of the Conversion of Saint Paul: it is also the end of the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity. Renowned spiritual writer, Gerry W Hughes, offers some thoughts on how the quest for unity requires just such a deep conversion in the hearts of all Christians.
