On September 16, world-renowned Bible scholar and theology professor Dr. Scott Hahn launched Christendom College’s Major Speaker Program, delivering a lecture on “The Bible, the Eucharist, and the New Evangelization.”
Hahn explained that just as human love and relationships lead to a sacrament—Matrimony—so too does our love and relationship with God lead to a sacrament—the Eucharist. He noted that it was Blessed Pope John Paul who first called for the new evangelization to be based on the Eucharist and, citing a paper by Francis Cardinal George of Chicago, said, “all evangelizers proclaim Christ, but Catholic evangelizers proclaim a Eucharistic Christ.”
An exceptionally popular speaker and teacher, Dr. Scott Hahn has delivered numerous talks nationally and internationally on a wide variety of topics related to Scripture and the Catholic faith. Over 500 of these talks have been produced in audio and video formats by St. Joseph Communications. These talks have been effective in helping thousands of Protestants and fallen-away Catholics to embrace the Catholic faith.
