The light had blinded him temporarily. Now that he was blind he could really "see" the truth.
And Jesus had come personally to meet him, to invite him to conversion. Saul became a great lover of Jesus. He was baptized and changed his name to Paul to show that he was a changed person.
Now he thought only of helping everyone know and love Jesus, the Savior. He traveled all over the world, preaching the Good News and led so many people to Jesus.
He worked and suffered. His enemies tried to kill him several times but nothing could stop him. When he was old and tired, he was once again put in prison and sentenced to die. Still St. Paul was happy to suffer and even die for Christ.
The Kindness of God protected St.Paul through all the persecutions that faced him during his ministry.
