Talks Will Explore:

  • the background of Matthew’s Gospel and his call to be an apostle.

  • The centrality of the Beatitudes as the blueprint of the whole Gospel 

  • The importance of proclaiming the kingdom of heaven and revealing himself as light in our darkness 

  • Although it will cost us everything, Jesus makes us rich in what counts. For we are saved by the self-sacrificing, indwelling love of a divine person, and not by abstract teachings.

Our primary text besides Matthew’s Gospel is the introduction to the Book Praying with St. Matthew’s Gospel, Fr. Peter Cameron, Ed. (Magnificat Publication)
