For St. Paul, reaching Rome meant being able to preach to the whole world. Since his martyrdom “outside the walls” (circa 67), Rome is forever associated with the Apostle of the Gentiles.

The Pauline Family in the US announces a pilgrimage in honor of St. Paul: A week in Rome, preceded by Milan, northern Italy (birthplace of the Pauline Family), Assisi and Orvieto, and followed up with an optional visit to Malta. Daily Mass, Eucharistic Adoration, and Scripture study.  For info:

The bishops are beginning to proclaim Jubilee throughout the land. On the feast of the Conversion of St. Paul, Bishop Saltarelli of Wilmington, Delaware, issued a pastoral letter in anticipation of the Pauline Year. It offers a good blend of scriptural, spiritual and pastoral reflection and some practical ideas for the Jubilee Year, touching on the following six themes:
I. Paul’s Conversion Experience on the Road to Damascus and our Personal Conversion in the Year of Saint Paul
II. Living and Praying Christ in the Year of Saint Paul
III. Praying, Studying and Living the Inspired Word of God in the Pauline Year
IV. Lifting High the Cross of Christ in the Year of Saint Paul
V. Rekindling a Love for the Eucharist and the Church in the Year of Saint Paul
VI. The Universal Call to Holiness and the Universal Call to Mission in the Year of Saint Paul
