We read about Saint Paul in the Acts of the Apostles. Paul was born in Tarsus, in what is now the country of Turkey. He went to school in Jerusalem and studied Jewish law. Paul did not believe that the followers of Jesus were faithful to Jewish tradition. Paul wanted to destroy the Church. Paul was there when Stephen, a follower of Jesus, was killed because he was Christian. Paul then went to Damascus to arrest more Christians. On the way, a bright light blinded him. He heard the voice of Jesus Christ, who had chosen him to become a follower. Paul changed his ways, regained his sight, and was baptized. Paul made long journeys to places around the Mediterranean Sea to tell people about Jesus. He started churches in many cities. He wrote letters to the people to help them become better Christians. These letters are found in the Bible. When we read them, we learn of Paul's love for Jesus. The feast of Saint Paul is June 29.
