Earlier this year Pope Benedict announced a special jubilee year dedicated to St. Paul to mark the (approximately) the 2000th anniversary of the Saint’s birth. The year will have a special ecumenical dimension to reflect the saint’s commitment to unity and harmony among all Christians. Bishop Tom Wright, Anglican Bishop of Durham, is one of the world’s leading scholars on the New Testament, especially on the letters of St. Paul. He spoke in Carlow Cathedral recently as part of their 175th anniversary celebrations of the Cathedral. Eileen Good met him and she first asked him what kind of person St. Paul was.
