Saint Paul was a brilliant and zealous Pharisee who oversaw the persecution of early Christians until he had a dramatic intervention on the road to Damascus. He was struck blind and heard the words “Saul, Saul why do you persecute Me”. He was converted, became a Christian, took the name “Paul” and became known as the “Apostle to the Gentiles”.
He is the patron of missionaries, theologians, evangelists, writers, journalists, saddle makers an rope makers.
