Hebrews is written to Jewish converts, who, because of persecutions, as well as fear and doubts about their Christian faith, are tempted to revert back to traditional Judaism and its Temple-centered worship.  This epistle aims to keep these Jewish Christians in the fold by stressing the failure of the Old Covenant; that the rituals of sacrificing animals has been replaced by the superiority of the New Covenant of Jesus Christ who is the true sacrificial lamb who shed His blood for us.  The New Covenant does what the Old Covenant could not do: free us from sin.

First Corinthians Catholic Bible Study
By George Montague
First Corinthians is the one that enables us to see the reality of a first-century Christian community.  This study shows the continuity between the Church of God at Corinth and the Catholic Church of the 21st century.  It’s as insightful about the one as it is the other.

“Isaiah”
Join men in reading Isaiah by Lesile J, Hoppe, OFM. The book of Isaiah is an expression of faith in the Holy One of Israel and in the future of Jerusalem, both of which have decisively shaped the faith of Jewish and Christian believers over the centuries.

A Testimony…
I have been a part of the Men’s Tuesday Morning Bible Study group for the last 10 years where we gather weekly to study and discuss the coming Sunday’s Mass scriptures.  It’s great to show up at Sunday Mass already familiar with the readings.  In addition, this group of men has become the best of friends as we also make time to listen when one of us needs to share, in confidence, either difficulties or joys going on in his life.  Next to the sacraments, I can honestly say that joining up with this group of men has been one of the best things for my spiritual health that I’ve done.  We also have a lot of fun as well.  Please join us; we’d love to share what we’ve found.  - John Millette


“Sunday’s Readings”
In this Bible study on Tuesday mornings, we examine the readings for next Sunday’s Mass. This permits a better understanding of Scripture.  Various commentaries can provide an in-depth meaning of Sunday’s readings. Men are able to engage in stimulating discussion in understanding God's plan for them.

Catholic Men Called to be Saints

(Formerly That Man Is You)
 
DATE: Thursdays, Sept 4, 2014-June 25, 2015
TIME: 5:45 A.M.-7:30 A.M.
PLACE: Corpus Christi Room
FACILITATOR: Jim Kij
00-7:30 am, Corpus Christi Room
 
In this DVD series, Dr. Pitre takes you through study of the origins of the Old and New Testaments.  The history of how the canon, the official list of books in the Bible, came to be, and the central role the Catholic Church played in the formation of the canon.  Explore the reliability and authorship of the Gospels, and whether or not we can have confidence that the canon of Scripture is reliable. This is a group of men, of all ages, that come together to foster an environment where men can speak to each other about spiritual and practical ideas, allowing men to open up about concerns and struggles in a secure and confidential way.

A Testimony…
We started our men’s group, That Man Is You, in 2003. After 10 years, we decided to change our name to Catholic Men Called to Be Saints. We decided on this name because Paul told all Christians to strive to be saints and we thought that met our goal of being the best husbands, fathers and men in our families, and to strive daily in pleasing God and do what it takes to be a saint. Our group has been an inspiration to me and has helped me realize that even someone like me has a chance to be a Saint, something I never thought possible. It has given me hope and allowed me to grow in my faith journey. –Mark Hudec
