St. Paul is known as the ‘Apostle to the Gentiles’. He was not one of the twelve chosen by Jesus. In fact, he had never met Jesus in person. St. Paul was a zealous religious man who wanted to destroy Christians. On his way to arrest them, he was struck down and heard Jesus calling him to become His follower. St. Paul went on to become one of the greatest Christian teachers in history. He travelled extensively to convert people and wrote letters which became part of the Bible. He was eventually martyred in Rome. The Feast of the Conversion of St. Paul is on 25 January.
