In the beginning, Saulus was known as a fanatic person whose heart was filled with hatred to the Chistians, who persecuted and killed them withoutfeeling anz remorse. He chased them out of palestine, saint Stephanus, the Deacon, was the first one among them.

His Conversion AD 35

This took place near Damascus, on the ancient road of Egzpt/ Damascus, in the middle of the day . Suddenly, a light from heaven shined round about him, he fell down and heard a voice saying to him: Saul, Saul, why do you persecute me?

Who are you Lord? Saulus asked. And the lord said: I am Jesus whom you persecute, its hard for you to kick against the pricks.

On the hill near the ancient Egyp - Damascus road, 18 Km south of Damascus, stands the Vision Convent. The ancients built this convent because they know the sanctity and the importance of this site. Only some traces and some polished stones still exist; which two capitals of a corinthian column; and a water well: only a little vestige has remained from the ancient convent.

 

The imortance of this place incited His Beatitude Alexi the First, Patriarch of Moscow and all Russia, to contribute in Building a small church on his account in 1965. This church still exists as an evidence of the hoilness of this place.
