Today marks the beginning of the Year of Faith. Hey Scott, what’s this all about?
As a follow-up, here’s a video of Scott Hahn speaking about the Assumption. As usual, he packs in a vast amount of material and information, so hang on to your hats…
And for something a little lighter…
When Christians get together there’s really nothing we love to do more than to complain! In my experience, what we especially like to do is to have a good whine about the problems we have with our parish. In response to this, I would like to write a series of short posts about some common complaints I’ve heard. Today I’ll begin with one of the most common criticisms…
“Our priest’s homilies are boring…”
As I say, this is a very common complaint. I’ve lost track of the number of times I’ve heard people say something like this. Unfortunately, it’s often a reason given as to why someone left to join a Protestant congregation.
Love theology. Love music. Love puns.
In honour of my new BFF…
“God’s wrath, throughout history, basically consists of giving us what we want” – Scott Hahn
Last night I finally got to meet Dr. Scott Hahn. He was giving a talk at St. Therese’s Catholic Parish in San Diego. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to come to the talk itself, but I managed to get to the church before he left.
I got him to sign one of his books.
I asked him a question concerning one of his previous talks on Matthew’s Gospel.
He was taller than I expected.
I have come close to meeting Dr. Hahn so many times, missing him by only a few days, hours or miles. Because of this, “Meet Scott Hahn” made it onto my Bucket List several years ago. It was with a great sense of satisfaction that, when I returned to my car last night, I finally crossed that item off my list:
A while ago, I missed out on the 8th Biblical Studies Conference, held not far from here. I annoyingly found out about it approximately two hours after it had finished! Argh! I have just missed hearing Scott Hahn in person sooooo many times now. It’s starting to get a bit ridiculous…
Fortunately, I just found some videos of that weekend. Enjoy.
Happy Friday! I don’t know about you, but for me this week has simply flown by. It’s now only a few hours until it’s time to hit the beach, but to get you through those remaining hours, here’s a little bit of Friday Frivolity….
“And if you’re Catholic, there are even more…”
And for those ladies looking for a new Bible, I can thoroughly recommend the new RSV New Testament Study Bible which has commentary from Dr. Scott Hahn and Curtis Mitch:
For $15, it’s an absolute bargain.
