Word on Fire Catholic Ministries is a non-profit evangelization apostolate with a remarkable global impact. In fact, if the Word on Fire website were a physical building and its visitors physically present, then WordOnFire.org would be the most trafficked Catholic shrine in the Western Hemisphere. Many of these regular visitors are people who otherwise would never darken the door of a church. In this episode of the Word on Fire Show, Bishop Barron discusses the testimonies of three people whose lives were changed by the ministry. A listener asks about Biblical criticism.

    First, I have welcomed your videos, specifically the Beatitudes discussion and the GK Chesterton DVD. But I am disturbed by your comments in John Allen’ ‘To Light a Fire,’ specifically that the Pope, you and the USCCB have become a Socialists PAC, because we have lost the battle (p135) on SEX (Abortion, Sodomy Trasgendering). I exaggerate for brevity, but why are we so visibly attacking the things President Trump does, but give no voice to what he does in support of Christianity and virtue? Isn’t teaching morality to INDIVIDUALS our job? Make America Holy Again!!
