Society of St. Paul
Priests and Brothers in Media

Bringing Christ to the World through Media

Who We Are

The brothers and priests of the Pious Society of St. Paul are consecrated religious who use every means of
available communications technology to joyfully proclaim the Kingdom of God. Globally, this includes publishing, Internet, digital communications, TV, radio, video and audio, and film, while in our United States province, we concentrate on an excellent range of print, electronic, and audio books.

Constituted by our founder, Bl. James Alberione, under the title and patronage of St. Paul, we are a religious society of apostolic life dedicated to spreading the Gospel. We live in community, professing vows of poverty, chastity, obedience, and fidelity to the Holy Father. We begin each day with prayer and the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass to ensure that we are what we preach, and each day concludes with prayer and an hour of Adoration before the Real Presence of the Blessed Sacrament.

We were born of the Eucharist and we find our peace in it. There before the tabernacle we are renewed, strengthened, loved. A Pauline must first be something in Christ, before he can do anything for Him.
Discerning a Religious Vocation?

  -Have you had an inkling of the still, small voice?
  - Is something in the world calling you out of it?
  - Can you say with St. Paul that preaching the gospel is no cause for you to boast, because you too feel compelled to tell others about Christ Jesus?

Don’t worry. We know how you feel.

The modern instruments of mass media and communications have greatly improved the lives of many, but they have also served as vehicles for error, distortion, sophistry, outright deceit, degradation and plain ol’ sin. But the medium used for evil can be used for good. James Alberione saw the Bad Press of his day and knew the only solution was the creation and invigoration of the Good Press. Wherever the devil tells his lies, there the Church must speak God's truth.

Be it a printing press or a color printer, a parish bulletin or a pithy tweet – the Word of God must be made known. 
Pauline Brothers in Media
The Pauline mission is "preaching through the press" and Brothers are instrumental in this at every stage and level of the US apostolate: from manuscript selection, editing, page layout, graphic design, production, marketing, sales, and distribution. Our Brothers bring a host of technical and academic competencies to the apostolate along with a spirit of reparation and Christ-like sacrifice to aid pastors, catechists, professors, and parents in handing on the Catholic faith.
Pauline Priests in Media
The priest lives and ministers first in community, but also generously makes himself available to local parishes for sacramental ministry. The main focus of his apostolic life, however, always remains the altar of sacrifice within the apostolate of mass media and social communications, which extends his preaching to the world. Pauline priests build their spiritual lives upon the Way, Truth, and Life method of our founder, Bl. Fr. James Alberione.
