In a word,
Never let go on these three things:
Faith, hope and love.
And know that the greatest of these
Will always be love.
I Corinthians 13:1-13
St. Paul , born between 5 and 15 B.C., was a strict Jew who persecuted the Christians who were teaching Jesus’ lessons. One day on the way to Damascus to hunt for Christians, Paul met Jesus. Paul became the greatest Christian missionary, preaching and founding churches. For about 30 years, he traveled around the Roman Empire, preaching about Christ and suffering. From his many letters that are in the Bible and from the Acts of the Apostles, we learn of his loyalty, courage and dedication to Christianity. He was imprisoned and finally beheaded outside of the walls of Rome – but not before he had built the bridge between the Jewish Religion of the Old Testament and Christianity of the New Testament. St. Paul died in the year 67 A.D.
