Almost done with Genesis

by Steve Ray on May 30, 2008

I have been in semi-seclusion for the last month and it has paid off. I have finished 26 out of 28 Lessons on Genesis and I am half dne with the 27th. Genesis is more fascinating than I realized. It is one thing to read it and quite another to dig deep and see how it all works together. There is a marveous inner consistency to it and the authorship of the Holy Spirit is more apparent the more you study.

 Writing about Abraham, then Isaac, then Jacob–well, I will miss them. It is like reading a long novel where you become personally engrossed in the characters' lives and then you get to the last chapter and have to say "Good-bye." I have two inclinations: one to start over again, and two, to dive into Exodus for the rest of the story.

 It will have to be the first. As soon as I am done with the www.CatholicScriptureStudy.com guide to Genesis, I have to start writing the script for our next DVD Abraham: Father of Faith & Works. So in a few days I will be much more active on the blog and my websites. Hope you can join Catholic Scripture study which now has my studies on both Acts and Genesis. Next will be 1 and 2 Corinthians which I start on this Fall.

How Proud We Are!

by Steve Ray on May 27, 2008

Obi-Wan.jpgOne of our long-time board members has just been ordained to the priesthood!

Geoff Horton (aka. Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi) is now Fr. Horton. Several board members were in attendance at his ordination on Saturday and at his first Mass on Sunday. One of our Defenders of the Catholic Faith (DCF) Board member youth was an altarboy! You can go here to see pictures and descriptions. There are many, many pictures. 

Signum Crusis (Siggy) who has been my Discussion Forum Administrator for many years said; "I can't put into words how proud I am." Of course Siggy feels like a proud mom! I am proud of both Fr. Obi-Wan (opps, I mean Fr. Horton) and Siggy too!

I, Steve Ray, proudly congratulate Fr. Horton — and I am extremely proud that he has been such a stalwart, orthodox and faithful member of this Board for so many years. Bravo!

If you go here you can see the announcement and the hundreds of messages. Go to page 5 and beyond to begin seeing lots of pictures. Please send him your congratulations! Our Message Board is at http://forums.catholic-convert.com.

“Roman Catholics for Obama”? Archbishop doesn’t thing so!

May 21, 2008

Bravo to Archbishop Chaput! Read the story here. Let's hope that other bishops will step up to the plate and join him. With Obama's "Culture of Death"mentality and his other big problems, someone suggested he would turn our country into an "OBAMA-nation."

Corpus Christi Sunday–Prepare for Possible Heresy!

May 20, 2008

Jesus didn't really do a miracle, right? He just taught everyone to care and share, right? You've heard that homily, right? The people had all brought picnic baskets which they kept hidden up under their robes. Jesus convinced them all to pull out their picnic baskets to share with everyone else. The REAL miracle was [...]

Great Commentaries on the Old Testament

May 17, 2008

When I started studying the Bible seriously I realized that utilizing Jewish commentaries could be very helpful. Studying Christian commentaries on the OT was helpful because they understood the whole picture and how Christ should be read "back into" the OT. But the Jewish commentaries, though they do not acknowledge Jesus as the Messiah, do [...]

Denied Communion over Obama?

May 16, 2008

Ed Peter's the Canon Lawyer has an interesting article today. I agree with him. I think it is unconscionable for a Catholic to even consider a vote for Obama. This man will turn the clock back a hundred years in the direction of the Culture of Death. Because he is young, "handsome," inexperienced, idealistic and [...]
