The Augustine Institute’s Lectio Series on Peter, a ten part lecture presentation by Dr. Timothy Gray, is a wonderful way to deepen your appreciation not only of Saint Peter, the first Pope, but the beauty of the Church and the Papacy as Jesus himself founded it. We recently were given a DVD set of this series and enjoyed prayerfully reviewing it and learning so much from both Scripture and Tradition as Dr. Gray masterfully presented it weaving in extra-biblical history, archeology, and art. What a blessing to have scholars such as this to unlock and explain so much of what modern Catholics may never have learned about the mysteries of the Church, Peter, and the Papacy! We can recommend no better way to celebrate the upcoming Solemnity on Monday 29 June of Saints Peter and Paul than to partake of this adult faith formation program. It will be well worth your time.
