SAN FRANCISCO, May 22, 2013 (Zenit.org) – A trio of Bible-expert nuns are hoping to be awarded $100,000 and a $10,000 bonus when they compete in Thursday’s finale of “The American Bible Challenge.”
The three nuns, Sisters Peter Joseph, Maria, and Evangeline, are Dominican Sisters of Mary, Mother of the Eucharist. Their community was founded only in 1997 in Michigan. Now the group has more than 120 sisters, many of whom are in their 20s.
The team has already won two preliminary rounds. The final show airs Thursday at 9 p.m. ET/8 p.m. CT.
The grand prize is $100,000. The winner of the American Bible Challenge Fan Favorite contest will be announced during the show, as well. The prize for being voted the “fan favorite” is an additional $10,000 for the team’s charity.
Should they win, the Dominican Sisters will use their prize to provide for the treatment and care of the aging sisters in the order, and to ensure that they are provided for as they advance into retirement.
Sister Peter Joseph spoke with ZENIT last month about the experience of evangelizing through a game show.
Why is this trip unique for Catholics? Let me tell you why.
Most cruise lines think they know what you want. They plan their itineraries for gambling, touristy sites and beautiful skylines. They are not religious and usually have no regard for the Catholic faith. Because of that their “St. Paul Cruises” offer a mix of religious and secular excursions devoid of Masses and Catholic insights.
In our experience even “St. Paul Cruises” hosted by Catholic organizations, or sponsored by local parish groups are basically tagging along with the Cruise Ship Captain’s choice of ports and are never completely focused on Biblical sites.
We have developed a partnership with an excellent Greek cruise line that allows me to choose the ports-of-call. And what do suspect I did? Every port is a biblical, Catholic and St. Paul site.
We have secured a customized biblical itinerary that takes you to the BEST SITES related to St. Paul, Mary, St. John, the first councils of the Catholic Church, Rome and more. We conduct on-board seminars teaching on St. Paul, apologetics and the expansion of the early Church.
We have Mass at the most amazing sites like Mary’s House in Ephesus, outdoors in Corinth, the Cathedral in Athens and the Cathedral where Pope John XXIII served as priest in Istanbul. We always have holy priests to act as spiritual directors, hear our confessions and celebrate reverent Masses each day.
If Israel is where the Church was born–Turkey, Greece and Rome is where it grew up. Sail and tour the Second Holy Land with us as your escorts and guides You will not find a Saint Paul Cruise like this anywhere else.
Suicide in Notre Dame Cathedral by Dr. Edward Peters Suicide—whatever mental/emotional problems induce some to commit it and which might even mitigate its culpability—is objectively a gravely evil action (CCC 2280-2283) and may never be licitly chosen. When committed in a sacred place such as a church or shrine, suicide effects the “violation” of that space [...]
Just got off the phone with Ignatius Press. Looks like we will begin rolling out the last three DVDs in our Footprints of God series. We are tentatively planning to start production in 2014 for a Christmas release. We have 7 done and 3 to go. We have done a little fundraising which has made [...]
Don’t miss one of my more recent Pentecost MP3 recordings where I take you up to the Upper Room in Jerusalem and explain how the Church was born 50 days after Christ rose from the dead!! Let me know what you think of my recent newsletter.
The Last Nightmare A Short and Terrifying Story by Steve Ray Everything went blank for a moment, but that moment seemed like eternity. He felt a motion, not with wind and breeze, but a motion none the less. He was traveling, moving, floating, transcending-he wasn’t really sure. The sudden blackness gave him time to regain [...]
Ignoring U.S. bishops, the Catholic university will honor an abortion-rights supporter on Monday. By ANNE HENDERSHOTT (moving to Franciscan University of Steubenville in the Fall) At Boston College’s commencement ceremony on Monday, Cardinal Sean O’Malley won’t be in attendance. The leader of the Boston archdiocese announced on May 10 that he would not deliver his traditional graduation benediction at the Catholic school [...]
In his homily May 16 Pope Francis preached on the uncomfortable zeal of St. Paul. Zenit.org reports, “St. Paul exhibited a “healthy madness” that made him an effective evangelist, Pope Francis said in his homily at a Mass on May 16. “Paul is a nuisance,” the Pope told the congregation at the Domus Sanctae Marthae. [...]
I was recently asked why Evangelicals cannot see the Eucharist and Real Presence in the Bible. This person said that when they read the Bible it seems so clear — especially John 6 where Jesus says “Unless you eat my Flesh and drink my Blood . . .” and at the Last Supper when he [...]
It was another fun show. Good questions and lively discussion. The discussion turned especially lively when and ex-Catholic, now Southern Baptist pastor came on to show how little he really understood the teaching of the Church (though he thought he was the defined expert.) Here is the link to listen on-line and the MP3 download [...]
The room was pretty full. It was warm but a gentle breeze was blowing—that would change. There was fear in the room. The Roman army was a thing to be feared, they had just crucified Jesus and it was a dangerous thing to associates of an executed criminal. They were also anxious about the promise. [...]
Yes, the first Christians had a difficult time with the technical transition from scrolls to books. You will certainly appreciate the need for the first “tech guys”. Enjoy! I laughed so hard I had tears in my eyes!
