Topic: St. Paul Teaches Us to Run the Race on Catholic Answers Live
1. St. Paul speaks rather strongly regarding women’s participation in the liturgy. How do we read his comments about women participating in the Mass, especially regarding lectors and altar servers?
2. I am a catechist for our RCIA program. We have many Protestant converts coming into the Church. One question I often get is this: “Did St. Paul consider himself to be “saved”?
3. When Paul wrote to the Romans, (e.g., Romans 3:28) he said we are saved by faith and not by works. Our Protestant brethren use this verse to counter Catholic teaching. How do we understand what Paul taught in Romans and Galatians?
4. According to Fr. Barron, after St. Paul’s conversion he disappeared for three years and went to Arabia. Do you think this really happened and if so, where is that in the Bible? Why did he go there?
5. Do you think Paul’s letters were written for a different time or are they still applicable to us in the modern world?
6. My mother just passed away on Sunday and I am setting up her Memorial Mass. Is there a particular scripture passage from St. Paul that I can have read at Mass that focuses on running the good race and the resurrection? I want to help reach my non-believing family members.
7. When St. Paul was struck down on the road to Damascus Jesus said, “Why are you persecuting Me?’ Does that mean that people that persecute Catholics and the Church today are actually doing it against Jesus?
