Fr Michael Patella, OSB – the creation of St John’s bible
Join Fr Thomas Rosica, CSB of Salt+Light for this Witness interview with Fr Michael Patella, OSB, a Benedictine monk of Saint John’s Abbey in Collegeville, Minnesota and a professor of New Testament at the Saint John’s School of Theology-Seminary. Both Fr. Rosica and Fr. Patella grew up in the diocese of Rochester, New York, and both studied Scripture during their years of formation in Rome and Jerusalem. Over the past decade, Fr Patella has played a key role overseeing the creation of the Saint John’s Bible, the first Benedictine-commissioned, hand-written, hand-illuminated Bible in 400 years.
