The Year of St. Paul


St. Paul, a Jew of the tribe of Benjamin, was born in Tarsus of Cilicia and died in Rome, Italy. At circumcision he received the name of Saul, but since he was also a Roman citizen, he came to be known among the Gentiles as Paul. At an early age he was sent to the Jewish school of Gamaliel. He also learned the trade of a tent-maker. He became a violent persecutor of the Christians and took part in the martyrdom of St. Stephen.

After his miraculous conversion on the way to Damascus he made three missionary journeys evangelizing both Jews and Gentiles. He wrote fourteen Epistles now found in the New Testament. He was finally brought a captive to Rome, imprisioned and then beheaded near the Ostian Way.
