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.

Jesus as the Davidic Messiah in Matthew (Part 2 of 2)

Posted by Dr. Michael Barber on 03.01.11

Following up from part 1. Am I missing any major piece of the puzzle here that wouldn’t require a lot of explanation?

  1. Jesus’ Davidic Exorcistic and Healing Powers. Jesus’ exorcisms and healings seem especially tied to his role as the Davidide. The blind healed by him address him specifically as “son of David” (cf. Matt 9:27; 20:31). Likewise, accounts of his exorcisms are linked with his role as the...  [Continue Reading]

What is the Biblical Form of Church Government?

Posted by Dr. John Bergsma on 02.25.11

During my years of training to become a Calvinist pastor, the issue of church polity was quite a live one.  Calvinists themselves do not agree on what is the “biblical model” for church government.  Presbyterian, Reformed, and Congregational denominations share a Calvinist doctrinal heritage but different governing structures.  There was more or less a consensus that the New Testament was unclear...  [Continue Reading]
