Did you know...

... that besides the Catholic Church and the Greek Orthodox Ecumenical Patriarchate of Constantinople,

Even Muslim majority Syria has dedicated this year to St. Paul?

The photos above shows a Syrian Christian lighting a candle and placing it in front of a biblical scene mounted on the wall inside the Catholic Church of Saint Paul in the Bab Kisan district of old Damascus. In the context of Islamo-Christian fraternity Syria launched this week a year of celebrations for Saint Paul to coincide with the 2000th anniversary of his birth. (AFP)
