Holidays/Feast Days

I just did a 20-minute radio interview with Teresa Tomeo on Ave Maria Radio and EWTN which will be aired at 9:40 AM Eastern. She asked me to post my Talking Points that I sent to her along with our recent family picture, so here they are. Thanks for the great show, Teresa.

A video of me discovering the place of St. Paul’s shipwreck on the Island of Malta. It is recorded in Acts 27:1 – Acts 28:10. Feast Day of St. Paul’s Shipwreck is February 10.

Join me each Tuesday at 7:35 AM for our “In the Bible Series” on Son Rise Morning Show and EWTN. Today was our segment on “Boats & Ships in the Bible”.

Pictures of me fishing with Jewish fishermen all night on the Sea of Galilee:

downloadJesus asked an unusual question from heaven. “Saul, Saul, why do you persecute Me?” How could Saul persecute Jesus who was safely distanced in heaven?

This question was the seed that grew into the foundation for all of St. Paul’s teaching and theology. Fascinating look at how we are all in Christ and Christ is in us.

Steve also discusses his times visiting the very location of Saul’s conversion in Damascus and how he came down the same wall as St. Paul in a basket.

By the way, do you know why nothing really happened that day?

Enjoy the lively discussion here

“Why do you Catholics Believe Mary was Assumed into Heaven?”

“Be not ashamed of the Cross of Christ; but though another hide it, do thou openly seal it upon thy forehead”

September 14, 2020

On this feast day of the Triumph of the Cross, heed the words of Church Father, St. Cyril, Archbishop of Jerusalem (c. 315–87) in  his “Catechetical Lectures.” 13. All kings when they die have their power extinguished with their life: but Christ crucified is worshipped by the whole world. We proclaim The Crucified, and the devils […]

Feast Day of St. Martha, loved by Jesus

July 29, 2020

Martha is often given the short shrift. She lived with her brother Lazarus and her sister Mary in Bethany where Jesus lived when he was in the Jerusalem area. She worked hard, cared for people but was criticized by Jesus, or so it seems. I don’t think Jesus was criticizing those who serve guests and take […]
