"St. Paul wasn't a 'choirboy.' He was a persecutor of the church, proud of his own convictions, but one day something completely unpredictable happens: the encounter with the risen Jesus on the road to Damascus. It is the surprise of this encounter that all Christians are called to experience even if we are sinners." (Pope Francis - April 19, 2017 Weekly General Audience)
Fr. Paul R. Fagan, C.P. "Preacher on the Run"
