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.

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.

1. First, since for those of us following the Catholic lectionary, it is Year A, it’s a great opportunity to reread closely and carefully the Gospel of Matthew. Over a hundred years ago, the French author...  [Continue Reading]

Word Association

Posted by Dr. Scott Hahn on 01.05.11

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.
