We are going to try to unpack the Gospel, see why the Church picks certain readings for this very special day, and then also just shed a little bit of light on the biblical background of why we, as Catholics, call Mary the Mother of God, and what exactly we’re celebrating on this feast day.

Dr Pitre is amazing. The way he teaches makes it so easy to understand. He gives me answers to questions I never thought to ask. Without hesitation I will be buying more Bible studies that he has done.

Fantastic

This is a great talk on what Catholics believe about Mary. The book, Jesus and the Jewish Roots of Mary is more detailed. I highly recommend both. As usual, Dr. Pitre does a great job!

The Jewish Roots of Holy Week

I liked “The Jewish Roots of Holy Week :The Seven Last Days of Jesus” very much and appreciate that you divided it into chapters so that I can use it during Lent next year. Your prices are so reasonable too! Thank you!

Absolutely Fabulous

Excellent lecture with terrific information. Always enjoy Dr Bergsma's teaching and style.

Great and fantastic studies!

CP offerings are about as fine as any could be. The material is relevant, cogent, convicting and always brings joy. The CP staff is OUTSTANDING. They know their offerings, listen to your questions/needs/requirements and ensure Customer Service that is Customer Centric. It is a pleasure to have such wonderful studies from a very fine company. God bless you and thank you for what you do.
