And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. Revelation 21:2 King James Version (KJV). Fine Art Photography by Zbigniew Halat And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God. And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away. Revelation 21:2-4 King James Version (KJV)

Stephen’s Speech (...) 51 Then Stephen said, “You stubborn Jewish leaders! You refuse to give your hearts to God or even listen to him. You are always against what the Holy Spirit wants you to do. That’s how your ancestors were, and you are just like them! 52 They persecuted every prophet who ever lived. They even killed those who long ago said that the Righteous One would come. And now you have turned against that Righteous One and killed him. 53 You are the people who received God’s law, which he gave you through his angels. But you don’t obey it!”  Stephen Is Killed 54 When those in the council meeting heard this, they became very angry. They were so mad they were grinding their teeth at him. 55 But Stephen was full of the Holy Spirit. He looked up into heaven and saw the glory of God. And he saw Jesus standing at God’s right side. 56 Stephen said, “Look! I see heaven open. And I see the Son of Man standing at God’s right side.” 57 Everyone there started shouting loudly, covering their ears with their hands. Together they all ran at Stephen. 58 They took him out of the city and began throwing stones at him. The men who told lies against Stephen gave their coats to a young man named Saul. 59 As they were throwing the stones at him, Stephen was praying. He said, “Lord Jesus, receive my spirit!” 60 He fell on his knees and shouted, “Lord, don’t blame them for this sin!” These were his last words before he died. Acts 7:51-60 Easy-to-Read Version (ERV) 8 Saul agreed that the killing of Stephen was a good thing. Some godly men buried Stephen and cried loudly for him. Trouble for the Believers On that day the Jews began to persecute the church in Jerusalem, making them suffer very much. Saul was also trying to destroy the group. He went into their houses, dragged out men and women, and put them in jail. All the believers left Jerusalem. Only the apostles stayed. The believers went to different places in Judea and Samaria. 4 They were scattered everywhere, and in every place they went, they told people the Good News.  Acts 8:1-4 Easy-to-Read Version (ERV) Saul Becomes a Follower of Jesus 9 In Jerusalem Saul was still trying to scare the followers of the Lord, even saying he would kill them. He went to the high priest 2 and asked him to write letters to the synagogues in the city of Damascus. Saul wanted the high priest to give him the authority to find people in Damascus who were followers of the Way. If he found any believers there, men or women, he would arrest them and bring them back to Jerusalem. 3 So Saul went to Damascus. When he came near the city, a very bright light from heaven suddenly shined around him. 4 He fell to the ground and heard a voice saying to him, “Saul, Saul! Why are you persecuting me?”  5 Saul said, “Who are you, Lord?”  The voice answered, “I am Jesus, the one you are persecuting. 6 Get up now and go into the city. Someone there will tell you what you must do.” 7 The men traveling with Saul just stood there, unable to speak. They heard the voice, but they saw no one. 8 Saul got up from the ground and opened his eyes, but he could not see. So the men with him held his hand and led him into Damascus. 9 For three days, Saul could not see; he did not eat or drink. 10 There was a follower of Jesus in Damascus named Ananias. In a vision the Lord said to him, “Ananias!” Ananias answered, “Here I am, Lord.” 11 The Lord said to him, “Get up and go to the street called Straight Street. Find the house of Judas[a] and ask for a man named Saul from the city of Tarsus. He is there now, praying. 12 He has seen a vision in which a man named Ananias came and laid his hands on him so that he could see again.” 13 But Ananias answered, “Lord, many people have told me about this man. They told me about the many bad things he did to your holy people in Jerusalem. 14 Now he has come here to Damascus. The leading priests have given him the power to arrest all people who trust in you.” 15 But the Lord Jesus said to Ananias, “Go! I have chosen Saul for an important work. I want him to tell other nations, their rulers, and the people of Israel about me. 16 I will show him all that he must suffer for me.” 17 So Ananias left and went to the house of Judas. He laid his hands on Saul and said, “Saul, my brother, the Lord Jesus sent me. He is the one you saw on the road when you came here. He sent me so that you can see again and also be filled with the Holy Spirit.” 18 Immediately, something that looked like fish scales fell off Saul’s eyes. He was able to see! Then he got up and was baptized. 19 After he ate, he began to feel strong again. Saul Begins to Tell About Jesus Saul stayed with the followers of Jesus in Damascus for a few days. 20 Soon he began to go to the synagogues and tell people about Jesus. He told the people, “Jesus is the Son of God!” 21 All the people who heard Saul were amazed. They said, “This is the same man who was in Jerusalem trying to destroy the people who trust in Jesus! And that’s why he has come here—to arrest the followers of Jesus and take them back to the leading priests.” 22 But Saul became more and more powerful in proving that Jesus is the Messiah. His proofs were so strong that the Jews who lived in Damascus could not argue with him. Acts 9:1-22 Easy-to-Read Version (ERV)
Saul converted to Paul, in his own words, Thanks for God’s Mercy
12 I thank Christ Jesus our Lord because he trusted me and gave me this work of serving him. He gives me strength. 13 In the past I insulted Christ. As a proud and violent man, I persecuted his people. But God gave me mercy because I did not know what I was doing. I did that before I became a believer. 14 But our Lord gave me a full measure of his grace. And with that grace came the faith and love that are in Christ Jesus. 15 Here is a true statement that should be accepted without question: Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners, and I am the worst of them. 1 Timothy 1:12-15 Easy-to-Read Version (ERV)

Semen est sanguis Christianorum  The blood of the martyrs is the seed of the Church
proved from the very beginning by conversion of Saul the Pharisee to Paul the Apostle of Nations who brought Christianity to Europe (after Plures efficimur, quoties metimur a vobis; semen est sanguis christianorum, We multiply whenever we are mown down by you; the blood of Christians is seed. Apologeticus, 50, s. 13 by Tertullian; often quoted as ‘The blood of the martyrs is the seed of the church.’)

Vivo autem, jam non ego: vivit vero in me Christus
. Quod autem nunc vivo in carne: in fide vivo Filii Dei, qui dilexit me, et tradidit semetipsum pro me. Galatas 2:20 Biblia Sacra Vulgata (VULGATE) So I am not the one living now—it is Christ living in me. I still live in my body, but I live by faith in[a] the Son of God. He is the one who loved me and gave himself to save me. Galatians 2:20 Easy-to-Read Version (ERV)
Information on the site: "Porta Paolina. Nel 2008, in occasione dell'anno dedicato al bimillenario della nascita di San Paolo, la porta è stata decorata con pannelli di bronzo eseguiti dall'artista Guido Veroi. Sono reppresentante quattro scene della vita di San Paolo: la prima e la lapidazione di Santo Stefano, alla quale Paolo partecipò  reggendo le vesti di coloro che colpivano il primo martire; il seconda mostra Il Signore crocifisso e risorto che allunga la mano per toccare il cuore di Paolo sulla via di Damasco, quando la vita di Paolo fu cambiata irrevocabilmente; la terza illustra San Paolo che incontra San Pietro, a Gerusalemme, con gli apostoli del Signore per stabilire le diverse responsabilità della missione; l'ultima scena presenta Paolo incatenato che offre il Signore l'estremo e più grande segno d'amore mediante il martirio, mentre un soldato lo decapita ed un angelo lo accoglie recando con sé la palma della vittoria." The Pauline Door. "1n the year 2008, for the bimillennium of the birth of St Paul, this door was decorated by the Roman artist Guido Veroi. Four scenes from the life of Paul are portrayed: the first is the stoning of Stephen, the first martyr, at which Paul was present, holding the clothes of the killers. The second shows the crucified and risen Lord reaching out to touch the heart of Saul on the road to Damascus, where Paul's life changed irrevocably. The third panel shows the former persecutor, feared by the Christians, now in Jerusalem where he meets St Peter and the apostles of The Lord to establish the various responsibilities of their mission. The last panel shows the enchained Paul who offers to The Lord the last and greatest sign of love: martyrdom. A soldier beheads him while an angel greets him holding the palm of victory."
