O glorious St. Paul, who from a
persecutor of Christianity, didst
become a most ardent apostle
of zeal; and who to make
known the Savior Jesus Christ
unto the ends of the world
didst suffer with joy
stonings, shipwrecks and
persecutions of every kind, and
in the end didst shed thy blood
to the last drop, obtained for us
the grace to receive, as favors
of the Divine Mercy, infirmities,
tribulations, and misfortunes of
the present life, so that the
vicissitudes of this our exile will
not render us cold in the
service of God, but will render
us always more faithful and
more fervent. Amen.

Verse on the back:
Patron of Journalists, Publicists and Authors (First Century)
Paul began his life as Saul. So intense was his hatred for
Christians, that he persecuted them as heretics and
assisted in the stoning of Stephen -- the first martyr for
the faith. Saul's conversion to Christianity is detailed in Acts 9:1-19.
On his way to Damascus to arrest more Christians, Saul was
knocked to the ground and blinded by a heavenly light. He heard
a voice say to him, "Saul, Saul why do you persecute me? "Who
are you, Lord?" Saul asked. "I am Jesus, whom you are
persecuting," the voice replied. The voice instructed him to
continue on to Damascus. When Saul got up from the ground he
could not see, and so those traveling with him led him by hand to
Damascus. There, the Lord directed a disciple named Ananias to go
to Saul. Placing his hand on Saul, he said, Brother Saul, the Lord
Jesus, who appeared to you on the road as you were coming
here, has sent me here so that you may see you again, and be filled
with the Holy Spirit. Immediately, something like scales fell from
Saul's eyes, and he could see again. Saul got up and was baptized.
He took the name Paul as a symbol of his conversion. Almost
immediately began to preach in the synagogues that Jesus is
the son of God -- much to the astonishment of those who knew
of the fervor with which had had persecuted Christians. Paul
brought the passion with which he had persecuted Christians to
his ministry of sharing a message of Jesus. His missionary work
was tireless and fruitful. His commitment to the Churches he
established gave us 14 canonical Epistles. He is the patron of
journalists, publishers, authors, missionary bishop, and evangelists.
