Today is the Feast Day of the Conversion of Saint Paul.
Saint Paul is the only Apostle who never met Jesus in person – and indeed, Paul begins his adult life as a persecutor of the new Christian faith, and was known then as Saul.

However, on his way to Damascus (now in Syria) where he planned to persecute more Christians, he experienced a vision of Jesus Christ.
