    Have you ever wondered how to make progress in the spiritual life? Ever feel like your faults and failings have you just going in circles? You're not alone. In this illuminating Bible study, Dr. Brant Pitre looks at the spiritual life of Saint Peter through the lens of the three traditional stages or 'ages' of the spiritual life:

    • The Purgative Way
    • The Illuminative Way
    • The Unitive Way

    Dr. Pitre uses this framework to show how in the Gospels and the book of Acts, Simon Peter goes through the common stages of:

    • Spiritual Childhood (during Jesus' public ministry)
    • Spiritual Adolescence (after the crucifixion and resurrection)
    • Spiritual Adulthood (after Pentecost)

    Seen in this light, Peter's life reveals to us the progress and the pitfalls encountered by one of the greatest saints of all time. Most people can identify with Peter in the early stages of his discipleship, when he is constantly putting his foot in his mouth! But, as this inspiring Bible study shows, eventually, by means of the grace of God, Peter was transformed from a man who was so afraid of suffering that he betrayed Christ to an apostle of the Holy Spirit, who performed miracles, converted thousands, and laid the foundations of the Church. If you're looking for inspiration on making progress in your own spiritual life, and if you've ever identified with the mistakes made by Peter, then this is the Bible study for you.

    This recording was taken from the conference series, The Apostle Peter and the Papacy.

Spiritual life

Great explanation of the three stages of spiritual life and how we can grow in our spirituality. This shows us how to understand the spiritual life through the example of Saint Peter. This lesson was so good it made me want more. I recently bought the spiritual theology set. I look forward to hopefully building on what I learned with this lesson.

Genesis

I am listening to this while driving and sometimes deliberately take the slow lane which will keep me longer in the car. I just can’t get enough. Many thanks for making the lectures publicly available

Jesus the Bridegroom

Excellent. Great overview for the book we are using for our bible study.

Enlightening!

Great talk on adoration, and our need to spend time with our Lord.

Essential preparation for Easter

I am so glad that Dr. Petri came out with these videos of his presentations. I have read a lot of his books and use them in my Catechism Class. Please don't miss this opportunity to feast on what has taken him years to accumulate. It would be such a waste of a soul.
If your not fond of reading, definitely get his videos for yourself, your family, or for bringing back uneducated Catholics who may have left the faith. Our faith is so rich it is like a finely woven Persian carpet that takes years to make before you see the pattern...Dr. Petri has done all the weaving for you, you just get to step back and admire the work and then revel in what he reveals to you.
We are using this video in a presentation for our Parish the week before Easter...thank you Dr. Pitre!!!

Absolutely Amazing!!

As I've come to expect from Dr. Pitre!! He can take a profound mystery, which is central to our faith, and take us through a step by step process, to help us understand and appreciate this on a whole new level!! I recommend this to every Catholic!!
