The Acts of the Apostles, better known to us as Acts, is the story of the birth of the church. In Acts, Jesus departs, the Spirit descends, and a dynamic new faith is born. We meet St. Paul and travel with him on his missionary journeys. And we discover that the greatest acts of the apostles are actually a result of the work of the Holy Spirit--the conversions of hearts and lives everywhere.
