Prayer on the Feast of the Conversion of St Paul the Apostle (January 25th)

God our Father,
you taught the Gospel to all the world

through the preaching of Paul your apostle.
May we who celebrate his conversion to the Faith
follow him in bearing witness to your truth.
We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever.

Amen.

Our observance of the Year of St Paul begins with Vespers and Benediction of the Feast of St Peter & St Paul at 6.00pm on Sunday June 29th.
