Well, actually, no – I didn’t come looking for anything about you personally. Rather, I came to learn the unifying theme or purpose top your blog – that which ties all the disparate elements together. Apologia? Liturgy? Conversion?
Hello Father, Thank you for all the work you do on this website. It is truly remarkable. I attend both forms of the Latin Rite and especially appreciate the information you pass along on the Extraordinary Form. May God bless you,
Thanks for your kind words, but I’m not a member of the clergy. I’m glad you enjoy the site. It takes a lot of time and study. I do find it easier than preparing and teaching formal studies for people at my parish, which I’ve done a couple of times in the past (on Mark, Amos, John’s Passion Narrative).
Hi. Thanks for your posts on St. Cyril of Alexandria.
I´m a first year Theology student at the Pontifical University of the Holy Cross, Rome.
Could you please tell me the source of the post on St. Cyril´s Commentary on John?
In a post from June 7, 2007 you wrote ” We know that in Jesus’ day the readings used in the synagogue liturgy near Passover were Genesis chapters 1-8″. I’d be really grateful if you could point me to the literature on this.
The reference was to Aileen Guilding’s book THE FOURTH GOSPEL AND JEWISH WORSHIP, A STUDY OF THE RELATION OF ST JOHN’S GOSPEL TO THE ANCIENT JEWISH LECTIONARY SYSTEM. The work has been influential, but also heavily criticized.
