St. Paul

Saint Paul, originally known as Saul, was a devout Jew who persecuted Christians but underwent a profound conversion after encountering Jesus on the road to Damascus. He became one of the most influential figures in early Christianity, traveling extensively to preach the Gospel and establish Christian communities. Paul wrote many letters, or epistles, which form a significant portion of the New Testament. He is known for his teachings on faith, grace, and Christian living. Paul was eventually martyred in Rome. He is revered as a saint and is considered a patron of missionaries, evangelists, writers, and theologians.

Feast Day is on June 29 (with Saint Peter)
