Posted by Dr. Michael Barber on 03.12.12

Spiritual Sacrifices: Reflections on the Third Sunday of Lent

Posted by Dr. Scott Hahn on 03.09.12

Jesus does not come to destroy the temple, but to fulfill it (see Matthew 5:17) - to reveal its true purpose in God’s saving plan.

In today’s Epistle, Paul uses exact words drawn from this story to describe how God, like Abraham, did...  [Continue Reading]

Intro to Lent III: Almsgiving

Posted by Mike Aquilina on 03.01.12
