St. Paul is respected, admired and studied like no other writer in history. Christians draw truth and knowledge from his inspired writings. His missionary efforts provide a model for servants of the Gospel. Within the Catholic community, noted for its devotion to the saints, however, St. Paul is seldom invoked in prayer Other saints have large and enthusiastic followings. St. Jude is the patron of hopeless cases and St. Anthony the finder of lost articles. What can we expect, however, when we say, "St. Paul, pray for us"? The prayers in this Novena and the requests we make to St. Paul are based on what he prayed for during his life, on what he saw as the indispensable spiritual needs of the early followers of Jesus. Each day of the Novena ends with praying an Our Father, a Hail Mary and finally a Glory Be. It is recommended that his Novena be celebrated within the context of receiving the sacrament of reconciliation and a devout reception of the Eucharist.
