From the article: The pope said the Pauline year will run from June 28, 2008, to June 29, 2009, to mark the approximately 2,000th anniversary of the saint's birth.

Jimmy: It starts now

So.... which is it? When I watched the homily this morning, I thought it started next year.

John D.

Looks like it's next year...

"Ieri pomeriggio mi sono recato nella Basilica di San Paolo fuori le Mura, dove ho celebrato i Primi Vespri dell’odierna Solennità dei Santi Apostoli Pietro e Paolo. Accanto al sepolcro dell’Apostolo delle genti ho reso omaggio alla sua memoria e ho annunciato l’Anno Paolino che, in occasione del bimillenario della sua nascita, si svolgerà dal 28 giugno 2008 al 29 giugno 2009. Stamani, secondo la tradizione, ci ritroviamo invece presso il sepolcro di San Pietro. Sono presenti, per ricevere il Pallio, gli Arcivescovi Metropoliti nominati durante l’ultimo anno, ai quali va il mio speciale saluto. E’ presente anche, inviata dal Patriarca ecumenico di Costantinopoli Bartolomeo I, un’eminente Delegazione, che accolgo con cordiale riconoscenza ripensando allo scorso 30 novembre, quando mi trovavo a Istanbul - Costantinopoli per la festa di Sant’Andrea. Saluto il Metropolita greco ortodosso di Francia, Emmanuel, il Metropolita di Sassima, Gennadios, e il Diacono Andreas. Siate i benvenuti, cari fratelli. Ogni anno la visita che reciprocamente ci rendiamo è segno che la ricerca della piena comunione è sempre presente nella volontà del Patriarca ecumenico e del Vescovo di Roma."

Might be a good idea to read all of his letters from now until then, maybe a couple of times.

Ed Peters

I think this is a cool idea.

Paul is the acid test of NT translator's skills, you know. Okay, during that year, no jokes about Paul's syntax. I promise.

Ed, do you mean his run-on sentences?

Ed Peters

Among other things, yes.

Esau

Isn't St. Paul the guy who actually corrupted Christianity, as some Protestants believe?

There are those Protestants (and these aren't the traditional Reformation Protestants, but I'd venture later Protestants) who subscribe to the Pauline Conspiracy.

I remember when I used to watch Journey Home on EWTN where some converts even mentioned this.

Tim J.

Flabbergastingly enough, There are (so-called) Catholics who believe the same thing, Esau.

Liberal theology makes strange bedfellows.

It's a bit like saying Johnny Carson conspired to corrupt late-night television.

Esau

Tim J.,

You've got to be kidding me!

More and more, the line between Protestantism and Catholicism blurs at its outer-most fringes, it seems.

Please suggest a way to study St. Paul for my women's group and another parish study group. Is there a study program out there or what?

Please help us get gain the graces for this special year. Any suggestions would be most helpful.
