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]

Fantastic New Commentary on Matthew's Gospel!

Posted by Dr. Brant Pitre on 01.20.11

With the coming the New Year, a number of blogs gave recommended readings for the upcoming year. I’d like to do the same, and recommend two books to read carefully over the course of the coming year.

Christmas came early for me in 2010. My biggest present arrived, date-stamped from the Vatican, in my email in mid-November. It was Pope Benedict’s new missive, the apostolic exhortation Verbum Domini (“The Word of the Lord”) — the most important magisterial document on Sacred Scripture in nearly half a century.

Catholic Saint on the Importance of Scripture

Posted by Dr. John Bergsma on 12.20.10

The Pope’s recent apostolic exhortation, Verbum Domini, (through which I am reading, albeit slowly), reminds me of how frequently the popes, the fathers, the doctors, and the saints have urged us Catholics to read and reflect on Scripture—and how sluggish our response has been!

I know the stereotype is that Catholics aren’t interested in Scripture. In many places and at many times the stereotype holds...  [Continue Reading]
