This special edition of Lectio Divina with Archbishop Thomas Collins: A Year with St. Paul
, can be seen Sunday, July 12th at 9pm ET with an encore presentation Wednesday, July 15th at 8pm ET.
New episodes of Lectio Divina will return in September on Salt + Light, as Archbishop Collins takes a look at the Parables!
