4 Saints who had miraculous conversions

These holy men and women became Christians after experiencing a miraculous event.

The English word “conversion” comes from the Latin convertere literally meaning “to turn around.” This is what it means when a person converts to Christianity, turning their entire lives around, focusing it on Jesus Christ.

Typically this is a gradual process, where one turns around slowly over time. However, on rare occasions this can be instantaneous after experiencing a miraculous event.

Below are several examples of holy men and women who made a complete “180” and turned around to follow God after he intervened in their lives.
