In honor of the Year of St. Paul, Fr. Bertrand has compiled a collective commentary directed toward the Epistles from a variety of resources to assist you in your weekly meeting preparation.
Fourteen of the twenty-one letters have been traditionally attributed to St. Paul. The other seven letters of the New Testament that follow the Pauline corpus are collectively referred to as the "Catholic Epistles". A term which means "universal", it refers to the fact that most of them are directed not to a single Christian community, as are most of the Pauline letters, but to a wider audience.
The Catholic letters, like those of the Pauline corpus, are also arranged in roughly descending order of length.
