Word On Fire

Blog posts from Bishop Robert Barron's Word on Fire Catholic Ministries.
  1. Br. Damian Day, O.P., offers a reflection on how the search for truth must always aim forward, regardless of whether we are limping towards it.
  2. Chris Hazell explains today how when we become part of the community, and through our communion, we are able to draw others from their own aloneness into the union that we celebrate as Divine life.
  3. Today, we celebrate the feast of St. Camillus de Lellis, who lived the great tradition of the celibate life as a model of heroic virtue. Often today, these traditions of the male priesthood and celibacy often bear the brunt of secular ire. Father Damian Ference offers not so much a defense of the traditions, but an explanation of why they are both practiced and of utmost importance, especially now.
  4. Yesterday began the seventh season of “Game of Thrones” which is pervaded by complexity and subtlety, both in its imagined world and in its ever growing cast of characters. Unfortunately, as Daniel Stewart explains, all of this nuance falls to nothing when Martin describes religion.
  5. Former One Direction star, Harry Styles, latest song has some surprisingly deep spiritual aspects. Today, Matthew Becklo explains why this song may be more eschatological than one might think at first glance.
