Catholicism: The Pivotal Players

Pivotal Players ImageJoin us this summer for a fascinating look into six of the most influential figures in the history of the Church. CATHOLICISM: The Pivotal Players, showcases a handful of saints, artists, mystics, and scholars who not only shaped the life of the Church but changed the course of western civilization:

  • St. Francis of Assisi, the Reformer, radically and literally lived as Jesus commanded to transform the Church.
  • St. Thomas Aquinas, the Theologian, demonstrated that faith and reason at not at odds, as they come from the same source.
  • St. Catherine of Siena, the Mystic, gave testimony to the reality of the spiritual dimension here and beyond.
  • Bl. John Henry Newman, the Convert, left a prestigious career to seek and preach the apostolic faith.
  • G.K. Chesterton, the Evangelist, publicly, humbly, and humorously announced the paradoxes and truth of Christianity.
  • Michelangelo, the Artist, dramatically demonstrated that beauty and creativity are a primary route of access to God.

This series, though, is more than academic!  Filmed on location across the world, we’ll discover the places where St. Thomas Aquinas lived, learned, and wrote; visit the countryside where St. Francis gathered a group of friars and revived the Church; see the places where St. Catherine of Siena ministered and prayed; trek through England to where Bl. John Henry Newman and G.K. Chesterton left their mark and sparked an English Catholic revival; and through unprecedented HD footage, marvel at the extraordinary art of Michelangelo, from his David statue in Florence, to the Pietà at St. Peter’s, to the Sistine Chapel.

Note: this study is co-ed, just for the summer, so bring your husbands if they can come!

Materials

There are two ways to order the Study Guide:

  • Order through the parish, in order to get the parish discount, less expensive shipping, and a possible bulk discount.  Here is how it will work. There are two deadlines:
    • By noon on Thursday, June 1st:  contact John Kovacs in the parish office with your commitment to purchase the Study Guide through the parish.  Shortly after noon on that day, John Kovacs will contact all such persons and let them know what the final cost will be, taking into account any bulk discounts and the less expensive shipping.   For example, if 30 people order the Study Guide, the grand total will be $20.48/person.  (Compare this to the $34.70 it will cost to order on your own directly from WordOnFire.org.)
    • By noon on Monday, June 5th:  drop off your payment of the above amount to the parish office, after which time the study guides will be ordered.  They should arrive within 3-4 days and will be distributed at the first session on June 13th.
  • Or, order on your own:  online at WordOnFire.org, or on Amazon (with its own shipping costs). Look for the “Catholicism Pivotal Players Study Guide”.
