CATHOLICISM: The Pivotal Players is a multi-part series that illuminates a handful of saints, artists, mystics, and scholars who not only shaped the life of the Church but also changed the course of western civilization. This brief study focuses on two incredible saints from the fourth and fifth centuries: St. Augustine of Hippo and St. Benedict of Nursia.
St. Augustine, the Teacher, is possibly the best example of how faith in Christ changed a person. Augustine’s narrative of personal transformation in his book Confessions provides a template for life in Christ that still rings true today.St. Benedict
Many would argue that St. Benedict, the Monk, contributed more to saving western Christian culture than anyone else. Born just after Rome fell, Benedict founded the religious community that would, in time, preserve the best of the old and allow for the emergence of an authentic, Christian way of life.
Join Bishop Barron as he traces the lives and contributions of these two pivotal saints.Disc Run Times (Blu-Ray)
