The Early Church. . . Mothers? Mike Aquilina's Fascinating New Book (w/ Podcast!)

Posted by Dr. Michael Barber on 07.02.12

Most people have heard of the Early Church Fathers, but the Mothers of the Church. . . there’s a category of saints we hear less often.

In part, that is due to the fact that not many of the early Christian women wrote. Yet that should not obscure the important contribution women made to the early Church.

In fact, as a number of sociologists and Church historians have demonstrated, Christianity involved...  [Continue Reading]

Arise!: Reflections for the Thirteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time

Posted by Dr. Scott Hahn on 06.29.12

The Church’s First Theologian

Posted by St. Paul Center on 06.28.12

Today is the feast of St. Irenaeus, bishop of Lyon (d. 202 AD),arguably the first systematic theologian in the Church.  In his youth, he learned from St. Polycarp who was a student of the Apostle John.  Irenaeus’ teaching is still very important in the Church more than 1800 years later; he is explicitly cited 24 times in the Catechism of the Catholic Church.  His work is surprisingly relevant for us today since he faced in second century France many of the heresies that are current in our own 21st century world.  Take a few minutes to listen to Mike Aquilina discuss the life and writings of this giant of the Catholic Faith with Kris and Bruce McGregor.

He was the nephew of his predecessor as Patriarch of Alexandria in Egypt. He likely spent his youth in a monastery before his uncle drafted him as an assistant and secretary. In 402 he accompanied Theophilus to the notorious Synod of the Oak...  [Continue Reading]
