Interesting Transistion

Enjoyed the talk. Have heard him speak previously and wanted to know his story.


  • 49 min. (1 CD / MP3)

    In Judges 15, Samson slays thousands of Philistines with a most unsuitable weapon: a jawbone of an ass. This very same text was referenced by St. John Vianney when asked why he should be admitted to the priesthood. He answered if God could use a jawbone to slay thousands of Philistines imagine what he could do with the whole thing.

    Similarly, as Gary Michuta likes to describe, he too never expected to become a renowned Catholic Apologist, for he was an introvert who fled from nearly every discussion about religion he encountered. However, God had other plans and through an anti-Catholic friend, Gary's life was unalterably changed from an incognito Catholic to a noted Catholic apologist.

Very Illuminating

I loved this talk. It gave a great introduction into the Song of Solomon, and how it is interpreted. Dr. Pitre clarified this often misunderstood text and prompted me to want to learn more about Jesus as The Bridegroom (so I am now listening to Dr. Pitre's talk "Jesus the Bridegroom"). Well worth the buy.

Very Good Biblical Study on Mary and Her Role in God's Plan

Dr. Pitre does a great job explaining biblically Mary's role and some reasons the veneration that we give her as Catholics. I knew some general concepts about this already, but his talk was very good at bringing these teachings together and expounding more fully upon these mysteries.

Excellent Explanation of the Mass as Biblical Worship

I can't tell you how many times I have used what I learned in this series when talking to both Catholics and Protestants. It is very relevant for a time when even Catholics are confused about the meaning and significance of the Mass.

Another great work by Dr. Pitre

Dr. Pitre does not disappoint in his latest look at St. Joseph, using Scripture, Church History and the Fathers to Get to the heart of who St. Joseph was. What a great resource. I can't wait for the book!
