Word On Fire

Blog posts from Bishop Robert Barron's Word on Fire Catholic Ministries.
  1. This coming Sunday marks the first World Day of the Poor called by Pope Francis. Fr. Billy Swan offers a reflection on the message all Christians need to consider in light of this momentous occasion.
  2. Is Jesus God? C.S. Lewis wrestled with this question through his famous Trilemma, and today, Matt Nelson dives into his arguments for Christ to indeed be God Incarnate.
  3. Today marks the Feast of St. Albert the Great, who is remembered as a Doctor of the Church. Br. Edmund McCullough explores two traits that elevated this genius to sainthood: his detachment from accolades and his staunch commitment to the truth.
  4. Today, Fr. Billy Swan reminds us of the profound nature of God's love, in that His humility is a sign of what love is.
  5. Today the Church commemorates St. Frances Xavier Cabrini, the first citizen of the United States to be canonized a saint. As Br. Leo Camurati explains, though, her sanctity came not through citizenship but through submission to Divine grace.
