Current Text: Saint Isaac the Syrian

"Isaac is the mirror. There you will behold yourself. The mirror is so that we may see if we have any shortcoming, any smudge on our face, in order to remove it, to cleanse ourselves..... In Abba Isaac you will behold your thoughts, what they are thinking. Your feet, where they are going. Your eyes, if they have light and see. There you will find many sure and unerring ways in order to be helped."

Bible Studies: The Sunday Mass Readings

Holy Scripture, the Word of God Himself, is the perfect expression and reflection of the Divine. As such, it is essential for all Christians to set aside time to enter more deeply into this Word. To discover the depth and beauty of Scripture is to encounter the depth and beauty of God.


"Ignorance of the Scriptures is ignorance of Christ." - St. Jerome
