The Conversion of St. Paul
And I fell unto the ground,
and heard a voice saying unto me,
Saul, Saul, why persecutest thou me?
And I answered, Who art thou, Lord?
And he said unto me,
I am Jesus of Nazareth,
whom thou persecutest.
(And they that were with me saw indeed the light, and were afraid; but they heard not the voice of him that spake to me.)
And I said, What shall I do, Lord?
And the Lord said unto me,
Arise, and go into Damascus;
and there it shall be told thee of all things
which are appointed for thee to do.
Although it is a Sunday, during this Pauline year, the Church today also celebrates The Conversion of Saint Paul
