Word On Fire

Blog posts from Bishop Robert Barron's Word on Fire Catholic Ministries.
  1. Today, Matthew Becklo discusses the metal band, 'The Angelus' and their unique ability to display the great virtue of hope in times of darkness.
  2. How often do we listen to that voice inside our head that doubts our capacity for grace and holiness? That fear can undermine our ability to be who we are meant to be for others. Today, Ricky Jones offers a reflection to challenge us to overcome that fear and be a blessing to everyone in our life.
  3. Sports and family are two aspects of human life that can teach us so much about who we are and the need for virtue to authentically live our vocation and call to evangelize. Today, Jared Zimmerer chats with Corey Robinson, who brings knowledge and experience of using the culture of wrestling as an avenue to reach the periphery and embue the Christian ethic into the lives of those he coaches.
  4. Today's feast of the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus is also the day of prayer for the sanctification of priests. Today, Fr. Billy Swan offers a reflection as a priest about the need for the merciful heart of Christ and allowing Christ to perfect our imperfections.
  5. Today we celebrate the feasts of St. John Fisher and St. Thomas More, two martyrs who stood up against a cultural tide against the faith. Br. John Paul Kern offers a challenge for all of us to embrace the same heroic virtue so embodied by today's saints.
