We Moved!

On Saturday, February 8, the Franciscan University Rugby Team and Prince of Peace Household helped the St. Paul Center settle into our new digs. Our new headquarters—immediately adjacent to Franciscan University—gives us both the room we need now and the room we need to grow. We also finally have our own media room, which will allow us to do more podcasts, videos, and Catholic radio. [READ MORE]

Do Not Be Anxious: Scott Hahn Reflects on the 8th Sunday in Ordinary Time

Posted by Dr. Scott Hahn on 02.28.14

Isaiah 49:14–15
Psalm 62:2–3, 6–9
1 Corinthians 4:1–5
Matthew 6:24–24

We are by nature prone to be anxious and troubled about many things.

In Sunday’s Gospel, Jesus confronts us with our most common fears. We are anxious mostly about how we will meet our material needs—for food and drink; for clothing; for security for tomorrow.

Yet in seeking security and comfort, we may unwittingly be handing ourselves...  [Continue Reading]

Franciscan University Presents: “Consuming the Word” on EWTN

Posted by St. Paul Center on 02.27.14

When we use the term “New Testament,” we usually just mean the last twenty-seven books of the Holy Bible, the ones written by the Apostles and their companions in the first century.  But that’s not what the term meant from the beginning.  Long before those books were even written, Jesus used that phrase to refer to the Eucharist.  It was the “New Covenant,” the “New Testament,” in his blood. Christians...  [Continue Reading]

The Tolerance of Paganism

Posted by Dr. John Bergsma on 02.26.14

David Bentley Hart, in Atheist Delusions, writes about the kind of religious culture early Christians left behind when they accepted baptism:


“Quite apart from their more revolting ritual observances, however, the religions of the empire were— to a very great degree— contemptible principally for what they did not do, and what in fact they never considered worth doing. Occasional attempts have been...  [Continue Reading]

Thomas Aquinas on John 6:53 (“the flesh is of no avail”)

Posted by Dr. Michael Barber on 02.26.14

The Bread of Life discourse in John 6 has Jesus emphasize over and over again that it is necessary for believers to “eat his flesh” and “drink his blood”.

Is this passage about the Eucharist?

There are good reasons for thinking so. First, the imagery of “eating” Jesus’ “flesh” and “drinking” his “blood” seems closely linked with the Last Supper, the only other place where such language is clearly...  [Continue Reading]

Holy as God: Scott Hahn Reflects on the Seventh Sunday in Ordinary Time

Posted by Dr. Scott Hahn on 02.21.14

Leviticus 19:1–2, 17–18
Psalm 103:1–4, 8, 10, 12–13
1 Corinthians 3:16–23
Matthew 5:38–48

We are called to the holiness of God. That is the extraordinary claim made in both the First Reading and Gospel this Sunday.

Yet how is it possible that we can be perfect as our Father in heaven is perfect?

Jesus explains that we must be imitators of God as his beloved children (Eph. 5:1–2).

As God does, we must...  [Continue Reading]
