Finding the Lost Ark in Mary

We might not realize it, but every Sunday at Mass we’re practicing typology—the Church has given us the lectionary as a key to connecting the Old and New Testaments. Nowhere is this more evident than in the readings for the Feast of the Assumption and their emphasis on the Ark of the Covenant. What might at first be surprising becomes clear when we read the Book of Revelation in light of the Old Testament to discover Mary as the Ark of the New Covenant.

Going on Vocation: Spiritual Fatherhood

Priests are fathers and fathers are priests—a concept that is increasingly difficult to understand in a culture that devalues the role of fathers more and more with each passing day. On this episode of The Road to Emmaus, Scott Hahn and Rob Corzine, Vice President of Programs at the St. Paul Center, offer clarity on the often-overlooked connection between priesthood and fatherhood.

Renewed by the Holy Spirit

Over the past forty years, the Church has seen a profound renewal in scholarship and the faith. There has been an outpouring of the Holy Spirit, inspiring a springtime for Catholic life. And no matter how dark it may seem for the Church, the Holy Spirit is ever-present. On this episode of The Road to Emmaus, Scott Hahn and Ralph Martin discuss how the Holy Spirit desires to work in the Church today.

Just Say Yes

St. Peter is the perfect example of what it means to give our lives to God. That doesn’t mean he was perfect—far from it. He questions, he doubts, he even denies Our Lord three times. But he always repents and accepts forgiveness. On this episode of The Road to Emmaus, Scott Hahn challenges us to say yes to Jesus.

St. Joseph and His Angels

Scripture never shows St. Joseph speaking, yet he plays such an important role in the Church—he stands as one of the most interesting figures in our history. One unique feature of his presence in Scripture is that, in almost all of the passages he’s referenced in, he is accompanied by angels. On this episode of The Road to Emmaus, Mike Aquilina, one of Scott Hahn’s good friends and co-founder of the St. Paul Center, explores the four “annunciations” to St. Joseph.

On Your Marks: Part Two

What does it mean to say that the Church is holy, when we look around and see so much unholiness? Unlike human institutions, the Church is made worthy not by her leaders but by her Head: Jesus Christ. When we profess that the Church is holy, we don’t mean that all her members are perfect—the Church is holy because it is our means of entering into the family of God.

On Your Marks: Part One

The Church is one, holy, catholic, and apostolic. We believe these facts about the Church because we profess them in the Creed, but without faith, these marks would not be obvious to reason alone. On this episode of The Road to Emmaus, Scott Hahn challenges us to recognize the supernatural dimension of the Church founded by Jesus.

The Obedience of Faith

As a former persecutor of the Church, St. Paul seems like an unlikely person to become one of the most inspiring writers of Scripture. But the Lord knew that Paul could use his unique knowledge as a Scripture scholar to connect the Old Testament to Christ’s fulfillment in the New. Rob Corzine, a close friend of Scott Hahn’s who recorded this talk, introduces the incredible story of Paul’s letter to the Romans.

Revealing the Book of Revelation

The Book of Revelation may be one of the most fascinating, and intimidating, books of the Bible. It has captured the imagination of readers throughout the centuries. With guidance, reading the Book of Revelation reveals something more than just earthquakes and falling stars. On this episode of The Road to Emmaus, Scott Hahn unlocks the Apocalypse of John.

The Pope

The role of the pope is one of the most questioned and misunderstood aspects of the Catholic Church. What does it mean to say that the pope is infallible? That there is an unbroken succession that goes back to St. Peter? With a little help from the Early Church Fathers, Scott Hahn explores the biblical basis of the papacy and the role of the Holy Father in shepherding the Church.
