10 Feb The Conversion of St Paul
On the 10th February we celebrate the feast of St Paul.
The welcome given to the survivors after the shipwreck is described in the Acts of the Apostles (XXVIII) by St. Luke:
“And later we learned that the island was called Malta.
And the people who lived there showed us great kindness,
and they made a fire and called us all to warm ourselves… ”
One of my favourite paintings, that has nothing to do with the shipwreck, is the Conversion of St Paul on the way to Damascus by Caravaggio.
Wishing you all a great holiday for the feast of St Paul
