We have a few blog series coming in 2019:

  • Sacred art: a weekly showcase of paintings in the Verbum Sacred Art Archive
  • How we use Verbum: stories from Faithlife employees about what they love to do with Verbum
  • Guest blog writers: soon to be announced posts from great Catholic writers
  • Resource excerpts: previews resources, new and old
  • Novenas: regular prayers throughout the year

What would you love to see on the blog?

A series that each week pointed to 2-3 important writings (patristic, medieval, church documents, Catholic classics...) related to the lectionary readings for the upcoming Sunday

Orthodox Bishop Hilarion Alfeyev: "To be a theologian means to have experience of a personal encounter with God through prayer and worship."

Donald, all of the ideas you present--as well as MJ's idea--sound great. If I come up with any ideas to add, I'll add them. But I definitely like these ones!

We're also going to run a monthly 'what we're reading' feature, so you can see what the Verbum team is up to.

I would benefit from examples on how to use Verbum to delve into theological topics such as the Sacraments, Canon of Scripture, how different devotions developed over time to name a few.  I know Verbum has a lot of wonderful resources available.  Knowing how to get at them for things like this would be very helpful.

That would be a neat blog series.

As a short answer, you can discover a lot just by doing a search. See below I search I ran on Sacraments:

Whence I open St. Thomas on the question:

This kind of searching is even more fruitful if you do a more specific search. Here I search for the Mystical Body of Christ:
