     Today is the feast of SAINT PETER and SAINT PAUL, the two stalwart Apostles who did more to promulgate the faith of Holy Mother Church in the early days of her formation amidst great prejudice and persecution. While our headline refers to Peter as the salt, both for his foundations and his personality, Paul is referred to as the "Shaker" - not in the Quaker sense, but in the mode that he shook things up going from prosecutor to convert, taking up the cause as the "Apostle of the Gentiles."

Pope urges bishops to give it the ol' "College Try" in solidifying the faith in the university system

     In the third and final part of Pope John Paul II's ad limina talk to a group of United States bishops from the upper midwest which included the esteemed Cardinal Francis George, OMI on the Vigil of Pentecost, the Holy Father completes his talk by emphasizing the vital importance of re-establishing the tenets of the faith into the total curriculum of the Catholic university system in America.

Saint Paul ignites the fuse of faith!

     In the fifth installment as part of our retro marathon week of the early chapters of our megaseries, we focus today on the Apostle Saint Paul and how his lightning turnaround of going from Saul the prosecutor of the Church to great defender was triggered by the fire of the Holy Spirit burning within him as Paul sparked a tremendous explosion of zeal for the new faith.

The embryo years: forming the foundations of faith

The canonical certainty of the priest as confector of the Sacrament of the Sacrifice.

     In his second part on Meekness of Heart in his weekly columns, Father Stephen Valenta, OFM Conv. cites the certainty of canon law which claims the necessity of confection by an ordained priest of the Sacrament at the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass in order for the bread and wine to truly become the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ, Soul and Divinity. Of all the privileges and responsibilities of the priesthood, this, along with the Sacrament of Reconciliation, are the most vital.
