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]

Understanding the Book of Acts: Part 1—"Why Do You Persecute Me?"

Posted by Dr. Michael Barber on 04.26.11

As we begin the Easter season, the liturgy—particularly the lectionary readings—turn our attention to the Book of Acts. Here then I thought I’d return to some material I’ve touched upon here in the past, namely, the link between the Acts of the Apostles and the life of Christ in the Gospel of Luke.

Indeed, once you see how the ministry of the Church in Acts is linked to that of Christ’s in the Gospels—and...  [Continue Reading]

The Whole Earth Keeps Silence

Posted by Mike Aquilina on 04.23.11

Something strange is happening ... there is a great silence on earth today, a great silence and stillness. The whole earth keeps silence because the King is asleep.

Was There a Passover Lamb at the Last Supper?

Posted by Dr. Brant Pitre on 04.21.11

Today, Catholics everywhere will celebrate Holy Thursday by attending the Evening Mass of the Lord’s Supper.

Holy Thursday

Posted by Mike Aquilina on 04.21.11

Whether you hold, with some Syriac Fathers, that Christ instituted the Eucharist on Tuesday — or, with the Western tradition, that He instituted it on Thursday — today, Holy Thursday, is the day the Catholic Church remembers the event liturgically. I’m about to leave with my kids for the Chrism Mass in my diocese. It’s a great sight for children to see every year: all the priests of the local Church...  [Continue Reading]
