Catholicism – Episode 05
The Indispensable Men
Peter, Paul, and the Missionary Adventure
Although there is much to be gained in simply viewing the video for the series and participating in the group discussion, you may want to take your learning to a deeper level by using the resources provided below.
Below are a summary of the episode and links to a number of resources you may find helpful in preparing for this session and our group discussion.
- Think about who Peter was: where he came from, his background, his weaknesses and strengths. What does Jesus’ call to Peter tell you about his call to you? To anyone? What does Jesus ask of those he invites to be his friends and disciples?
- Paul says that with faith in Jesus and his Resurrection, sin and death no longer have power over us. Think about how that happens in your life. What kinds of things have power over you? How could drawing closer to Jesus give those things less power?
