Ananias of Damascus

Feast day: January 25

 1st century.
 Ananias was the follower of The Way who was commanded by the Lord to seek out Saul. By laying his hands upon the Pharisee, Ananias restored Saul's eyesight and then he baptized him (Acts 9:10-19). Thus, one act of trust in God brought to Christianity one of its greatest missionaries, Paul. According to tradition, Ananias worked as a missionary in Damascus and Eleutheropolis, and ultimately suffered martyrdom
