Day 3:| 31 October: Sicily, Italy

And after three months we departed in a ship of Alexandria, which had wintered in the isle, whose sign was Castor and Pollux. And landing at Syracuse, we tarried there three days.(Acts 28:11-12)
This morning we are docked in Sicily and we visit Syracuse ,the glorious town that Paul visited. At some point around the year 59 he visited Syracuse where he preached – probably in the place where the paleo-Christian Church of Saint John was built. Whatever was said was expressed in Greek, the vernacular of Roman Sicily (where Latin was a second language). It is possible that a few Jews came to hear Paul talk, as there was a Jewish community at Syracuse. There was no subsequent “Letter of Paul to the Syracusans.” However, there is no doubt that it was Paul who brought Christianity to Sicily, even though his stay in Syracuse lasted only three days before he departed for Reggio Calabria, Pozzuoli (near Naples) and then Rome
