The road to Damascus...

I've learned that yesterday was St. Paul's day. Who was he? I mistakenly remembered him as one of the original disciples but he was actually their enemy at first, before becoming an apostle. He was Saul before he was Paul. An angry, violent, worldly man who one day saw the light, so bright, he was blinded by it. He changed his name to Paul and became a great teacher and Christian leader and he wrote for the original bible club. He gained healing powers and performed miracles. He had a serious beef with St. Peter at Antioch over circumcision. Martin Scorsese chose Harry Dean Stanton to play him. What's in a name? Letters.
