About The Road to Emmaus
From the St. Paul Center, Scott Hahn presents the deeply biblical roots of Catholic teaching and practice. Join him to learn how Sacred Scripture forms and informs our notions of morality and spirituality, liturgy and the sacraments, and so much more.
Dr. Scott Hahn is a renowned speaker, professor, and author, as well as the Founder and President of the St. Paul Center, an apostolate dedicated to teaching Catholics to read Scripture from the heart of the Church. Dr. Hahn has been married to Kimberly for forty years, and together they have six children and eighteen grandchildren. Two of their sons are currently in priestly formation with the Diocese of Steubenville. Dr. Hahn’s works include best-selling titles Rome Sweet Home, The Lamb’s Supper, and Hail Holy Queen.
When Scott Hahn began looking into the Catholic Church, he was urged on by one question: “How did a Roman execution come to be known as a sacrifice?” The more he studied, the more he realized that to understand Good Friday, we have to understand Holy Thursday and the Last Supper. On this episode of The Road to Emmaus, Dr. Hahn shares the story of how he came to discover that Scripture points ultimately to the Eucharist.
We might not realize it, but every Sunday at Mass we’re practicing typology—the Church has given us the lectionary as a key to connecting the Old and New Testaments. Nowhere is this more evident than in the readings for the Feast of the Assumption and their emphasis on the Ark of the Covenant. What might at first be surprising becomes clear when we read the Book of Revelation in light of the Old Testament to discover Mary as the Ark of the New Covenant.
Priests are fathers and fathers are priests—a concept that is increasingly difficult to understand in a culture that devalues the role of fathers more and more with each passing day. On this episode of The Road to Emmaus, Scott Hahn and Rob Corzine, Vice President of Programs at the St. Paul Center, offer clarity on the often-overlooked connection between priesthood and fatherhood.
Over the past forty years, the Church has seen a profound renewal in scholarship and the faith. There has been an outpouring of the Holy Spirit, inspiring a springtime for Catholic life. And no matter how dark it may seem for the Church, the Holy Spirit is ever-present. On this episode of The Road to Emmaus, Scott Hahn and Ralph Martin discuss how the Holy Spirit desires to work in the Church today.
St. Peter is the perfect example of what it means to give our lives to God. That doesn’t mean he was perfect—far from it. He questions, he doubts, he even denies Our Lord three times. But he always repents and accepts forgiveness. On this episode of The Road to Emmaus, Scott Hahn challenges us to say yes to Jesus.
