The Church celebrates the conversion of St. Paul on January 25th, which falls on Monday this year. Michelle Abernathy, artist and regular contributor to the Homely Hours, created a Conversion of Saint Paul Coloring Page for you to print and use for your church or home.
The Conversion of St. Paul celebrates the dramatic transformation of Saul of Tarsus, persecutor of Christians, into St. Paul the Apostle, bondservant of Christ. His story is recorded in Acts 9 and in Acts 22.
We love this coloring page because it does not just emphasize St. Paul himself, but also the beauty of the light of Christ– appropriate for one who so frequently insisted “by the grace of God I am what I am” (1 Corinthians 15:10a).

Collect for the Conversion of St. Paul
O God, who, through the preaching of the blessed Apostle Saint Paul, hast caused the light of the Gospel to shine throughout the world; Grant, we beseech thee, that we, having his wonderful conversion in remembrance, may show forth our thankfulness unto thee for the same, by following the holy doctrine which he taught, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
