Why a Year of St. Paul? Periodically, the Church sets aside an entire year to encourage all of us to focus on some particular and important aspect of our Faith.This year, we are given an opportunity to honor one of the great saints and founders of the early Church — the Apostle Paul.
Saints' days are usually associated with their deaths. Paul's is the only feast in the Church calendar commemorating a saint's conversion. Why is this particular conversion so important to the Church?
The Book of Acts tells how Jesus apprehended Paul on the road to Damascus and shows just how critical that event was to the Church's beginnings. This tireless convert, once a Church opponent, became what some call "the second founder of Christianity," after Christ himself.
This Year of St. Paul will be marked by countless commemorative, cultural, liturgical, and scholarly events in Rome and throughout the world. Vatican officials are urging Catholics to study St. Paul in Scripture so we can revitalize our faith in the light of his teachings and life.
