Fr. Pettingill’s warm style, ease with Sacred Scripture, and expertise as a professor added up to a thoroughly enjoyable experience as we listened and discovered more about Paul, whose love for Christ and zeal for the Gospel had him traverse the then-known world not once but THREE times.
Paul’s surrender to the Risen Lord Jesus and his response to the revelation of Christ became the driving force of his life and caused him to become a prolific writer and speaker. Fr. Pettingill discussed the “letter” as a literary form and introduced the topics he will cover in next month's talk, which will delve into the principal themes of Paul’s letters to the Galatians, Romans, Corinthians, and Ephesians.
Spontaneous questions and sharing among the lively participants, an ample display of supplementary readings and CDs, and a wonderful pictorial art exhibit of the Apostle Paul were other appreciated features of the evening.
Be sure to join us for Fr. Pettingill’s second lecture on Thursday, June 19th at 7:00 PM.

And more events have been planned to celebrate this special jubilee year...so please stay tuned!
Among the many mysteries unveiled in this book, we learn about the secret meetings between Cardinal Bertone and a nun who for decades had knocked mostly in vain at the door of the Vatican.... Cardinal Bertone's notes reveal to us the real Lucia, whom the cardinal describes as a persistent, stubborn, exuberant Carmelite nun.... [Lucia] introduces us to the "meta-story" of Fatima and sets aside once and for all the suspicions that the Fatima texts were doctored to hide the truth.
