Tuesday of Trinity 8 – Acts 26:24-27:8

Friday of Trinity 6 – Acts 21:37-22:16

ShareActs 21:37-22:16 In Acts 21 and 22 we are privileged to hear the “testimony” of St. Paul.  We hear how he was a Jew, born as a Roman citizen in Tarsus, and how he was brought up at the feet of Gamaliel, taught the Law strictly, and was zealous toward God.  He continues by telling […]
