Conversion of St. Paul

We're just two days away from the feast of the Conversion of St. Paul, the only conversion in all of history that is celebrated liturgically. I found a great thought from a sermon of St. Bernard regarding the "light from heaven": "We are clearly meant to understand by this that the brightness was around him but not within him. Paul heard the Lord's voice, but he did not see the Lord's face; he was being educated fro faith and, as he himself later taught, faith comes from what is heard."

Our celebrant this morning spoke of St. Paul as being invoked under fifty three "categories". At this point in time I would like to invoke him under all of the above.
