Both of these saints experienced dramatic moments of conversion: St Peter, at the time of his denial of Christ, and St Paul on the Damascus Road. St Peter is also known for his profound confession of Christ: ‘You are the Christ, the Son of the Living God’.

In our own conversions and trials of faith, may these two great flames of witness inspire us, and may they pray for us on our journey of faith. We pray that God will bless you this day.
