Novena to Mary, Mother of God


Every May, the Church celebrates the month of Mary. And every May, the St. Paul Center does the same. With this certainty, the St. Paul Center will pray a special novena to Mary’s Immaculate Heart, beginning on May 23, and concluding on May 31, the traditional day upon which the Church celebrates the Feast of the Visitation. During those nine days, we invite you to join us in asking for God’s continued blessing on our work.

In a sense, here Pope Benedict is reiterating what...  [Continue Reading]

Posted by Dr. John Bergsma on 08.31.11

The semester is in full swing for many of us, and the time to blog is scarce.  In preparation for my next post on papal infallibility, I’d like to call attention to this well-known essay by Protestant theologian Stephen Long from Garret-Nelson Seminary, who made some excellent and succinct remarks on the necessity of the papacy during the time of John Paul II’s funeral and the election of Benedict...  [Continue Reading]

In the School of Pope Benedict

Posted by Dr. Scott Hahn on 08.30.11

The new semester’s starting up. We’re heading back to school. I’m readying my lesson plans. My students are shopping for the best buys on their textbooks.
