Doctors of the Church
The Holy Father, Pope Benedict XVI has been devoting his Wednesday Audiences to a series on the Doctors of the Church. I wrote about the first four in the series in a post titled The Holy Father on the Doctors of the Church.
I have decided to dedicate a separate page of this blog to this series of the Holy Father's. The Doctors of the Church have much to teach us about our faith and our own paths to holiness and sainthood. Be sure to check back to this page for updates to the next in the Pope's series. The links will take you to the Holy Father's talk on the named saint. You can read about St Catherine of Siena, St Teresa of Avila, St Peter Canisius, and St John of the Cross in the post linked above.
May we all be open to what the saints have to teach us.
St Robert Bellarmine
St Lawrence of Brindisi
St Alphonsus Liguori
