    One of the most controversial lines ever written belongs to the Apostle Paul, when he wrote: “Wives, be submissive to your husbands, as to the Lord” (Ephesians 5:22). In modern times, this single line has earned Saint Paul the hatred of radical feminists everywhere, as well as the embarrassment of many Christians who do not understand what he meant. Because of this teaching, Paul has been called a misogynist, a male-chauvinist, and worse.

    Because of this teaching, women who ‘love Jesus’ can’t say the same for the apostle Paul. Sadly, even when this Scripture is read, many pastors will zealously avoid ever actually preaching about what Paul meant. In our day, it seems that the message of Ephesians 5 is just too controversial.

    But for Catholics, this is not acceptable. For Catholics, the writings of Saint Paul are not just the opinions of one ancient Jewish Rabbi from which we can pick and choose. They are the inspired Word of God, in which “everything asserted by the sacred author must be held to be asserted by the Holy Spirit” (Catechism of the Catholic Church #107). If this is true, then we have to ask: What is God trying to teach us in Ephesians 5? What does it mean when the Holy Spirit inspires to Paul to teach that wives should be “submissive” to their husbands?

    Given at the 2009 Word of God Conference - in one of his most challenging and inspiring talks ever recorded - Dr. Pitre tackles this controversial Scripture head-on, and shows how Ephesians 5 is not a justification for male chauvinism, but a life-changing vision of the Christian family. In this exciting study, you will learn:


    • Why Saint Paul’s message needs to be understood in light of the paganism of the Roman empire, which was destroying the ancient family—just like it is today.
    • How the husband is an image of Christ and the wife is image of the Church.
    • Why Saint Paul’s teaching does not justify the abuse of spouses or the inferiority of women.
    • Why pastors cannot continue to avoid talking about the spiritual headship of the Christian husband.
    • How Saint Paul’s teaching for Christian husbands and wives gives biblical solutions to two of the most common causes for modern-day divorce!


    If your own marriage is in trouble, or if you know someone else who needs help, or if you’ve ever just wondered—what in the world did Saint Paul mean?—then this Bible study is sure to shed light on the biblical vision of the Christian family.

Everyone should hear this talk, men and women

This talk is so incredible, it should be made available to everyone, or at least a portion of it, for the common good of all. This is such an important aspect of discernment and marriage that no one talks about, that no one teaches the young and inexperienced!! Dr. Brandt Pitre cleared up the confusion and difficulties by addressing the issue with the beautiful, truthful, clear, understandable, and honest teachings of our Holy Fathers and Popes. Everyone needs to watch this!!! The answer to the issue is not what either side would think it might be, it’s not male nor female domination nor mutual submission, but something far more beautiful and attractive.

wives do what?

A very good explanation of Eph.5, and very helpful for couples to love married life according to God’s plan and design.

Never got to hear it

I got the message “The Download limit has been exceeded for this file.” I was able to hear Brant explain the title of his talk in the first two minutes, but nothing else. Sigh. :(

Hi Carol,

I will email you a new download link as it sounds like the settings of your device streamed it instead of downloading it. If you can reply to the email letting me know what kind of device you are attempting to download to I can give you some ideas of what may have caused this.

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!
