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]

Reasons to Rock

Posted by Dr. Scott Hahn on 02.04.11

It’s twenty-five years since I was received into full communion with the Catholic Church. In some ways it seems like an aeon ago. In other ways it seems like yesterday.

It’s a quarter-century now, but I still experience, every February, a certain sense of homecoming. On February 22, the Church celebrates the feast of the Chair of St. Peter, Apostle. It’s an ancient feast, originally marking the first...  [Continue Reading]

New USCCB Document Highlights Biblical Quotations in the Mass

Posted by Dr. Michael Barber on 02.02.11

The Catholic Mass draws heavily from Scripture—in every prayer you hear quotations and allusions to biblical texts. In fact, last year I did a series of presentations now available through Saint Joseph Communications here (shameless plug!) exploring the biblical backdrop for the prayers of the Mass.

In the readings for last week’s Sunday Mass, we saw Jesus as the fulfillment of Isaiah’s prophecy (Isaiah 9) that a divine king, a Son of David, would appear in the north of Israel and give light to the people there.

In the readings for todays’ Mass (4th Sunday of Ordinary Time), we see Jesus explaining what kind of kingdom he rules: a kingdom of the “poor in Spirit”:

When Jesus saw the crowds, he...  [Continue Reading]

Aquinas: The Biblical Approach of the Model Catholic Theologian

Posted by Dr. Michael Barber on 01.28.11

Today is the Feast Day of St. Thomas Aquinas! In honor of that, I thought I’d cover some ground I’ve been over before, namely, Thomas’ role as a model of Catholic theology and his primary focus on Scripture. Perhaps most striking—at least to some—is Thomas’ insistence on the priority of the literal-historical sense of Scripture.

In short, for Thomas Theology is a Scriptural enterprise. Since he’s...  [Continue Reading]

Agnes Day

Posted by Mike Aquilina on 01.21.11

Today’s saint, Agnes of Rome, is long overdue for a revival. Why? She was probably the most revered female martyr of the early Church — outstanding in a field that included Blandina and Perpetua, among others. St. Jerome was not a man easily impressed, but of today’s saint, his near-contemporary, he wrote: “Every people, whatever their tongue, praise the name of Saint Agnes.” Prudentius wrote a long...  [Continue Reading]
