St Paul detail.jpgThe Opus Dei has put together a fine video clip series on Saint Paul for this year dedicated to him. Various themes are covered by professors of the Pontifical University of the Holy Cross briefly; they’re aimed at forming us to have a greater understanding of the Saint. Some videos are in Spanish and others in Italian but they all have English subtitles; there’s at least one given by a native English speaker. As you know, the goal of the Year of Saint Paul is not merely to know the Apostle’s thinking better –scholars are providing new works on this every year– rather, as Pope Benedict has recalled on a number of occasions, the hope of the Year is to learn from Paul how to respond to the current challenges of the faith.
