The Conversion of Saint Paul (January 25) wraps up the Octave of Prayer for Christian Unity which begins with the Confession of Saint Peter (January 18).

To understand the significance of this feast, you might consider these sermons about Saint Paul.


O God, who, by the preaching of thine apostle Paul, hast caused the light of the Gospel to shine throughout the world: Grant, we beseech thee, that we, having his wonderful conversion in remembrance, may show forth our thankfulness unto thee for the same by following the holy doctrine which he taught; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who liveth and reigneth with thee, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.
