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]

God Is With Us: Scott Hahn Reflects on the Fourth Sunday of Advent

Posted by Dr. Scott Hahn on 12.20.13

Readings:
Isaiah 7:10-14
Psalm 24:1-6
Romans 1:1-7
Matthew 1:18-24

The mystery kept secret for long ages, promised through His prophets in the holy Scriptures, is today revealed (see Romans 16:25-26).

This is the “Gospel of God” that Paul celebrates in today’s Epistle - the good news that “God is with us” in Jesus Christ. The sign promised to the House of David in today’s First Reading is given in...  [Continue Reading]

Pope Francis and Biblical Interpretation

Posted by Dr. John Bergsma on 12.20.13

Pope Francis’ recent Apostolic Exhortation Evangelii Gaudium is vigorous and beautiful reading, full of provocative statements to awaken us from spiritual slumber.  Unfortunately, it is a long document, and many may not read it through carefully.  I thought it would be helpful to clip out some of the most striking comments the Pope makes on the interpretation of Scripture.  Although he has in mind...  [Continue Reading]

Here is Your God: Scott Hahn Reflects on the Third Sunday of Advent

Posted by Dr. Scott Hahn on 12.13.13

Readings:
Isaiah 35:1-6,10
Psalm 146:6-10
James 5:7-10
Matthew 11:2-11

John questions Jesus from prison in today’s Gospel - for his disciples’ sake and for ours.

He knows that Jesus is doing “the works of the Messiah,” foretold in today’s First Reading and Psalm. But John wants his disciples - and us - to know that the Judge is at the gate, that in Jesus our God has come to save us.

In a Dark Hour: Scott Hahn Reflects on the First Sunday in Advent

Posted by Nate Roberts on 11.30.13

Readings:
Isaiah 2:1-5
Psalm 122:1-9
Romans 13:11-14
Matthew 24:37-44

Jesus exaggerates in today’s Gospel when He claims not to know the day or the hour when He will come again.

He occasionally makes such overstatements to drive home a point we might otherwise miss (see Matthew 5:34; 23:9; Luke 14:26).

His point here is that the exact “hour” is not important. What is crucial is that we not postpone...  [Continue Reading]
