Jesus against Idolatry

Led by Fr Stephen Ortiger

What does it mean to be against idolatry?  Is this still relevant for contemporary Christians?  What might modern day idols be?  Where is it that Jesus wants us to direct our hearts and minds?  Was Jesus really bothered about this?  All these questions and more will be answered by Fr Stephen and he draws us ever deeper into worship of God.

The Mass revealed in Scripture

  • Catholic Bible School : Swansea

Led by Alan De Sainte Croix

How were God’s promises in the Old Testament fulfilled in the New Testament?

Did Jesus really tell the Jews to drink his blood?

And where do we get all those symbols at Mass?

 

These and other questions will be explored as we take a look at the scriptural basis for our belief as Catholics that the Blessed Sacrament is Jesus, the Lamb of God.


Alan de Ste Croix is one of the Catholic Bible School’s Welsh Team and his love of our Mass is only equaled by his love of the bible. He is used to presenting talks and seminars in a professional role and we are delighted he has agreed to bring his talents to share with us. Alan will be exploring with us how the Mass is revealed in the Word of God.
