  1. Trying to do all I can to support WOF. And, I’m not against the idea of the patron model for financial support. But, I jumped all in with the WOF Institute with a monthly fee. I’m hope to become much more involved in that if I can. So, while I do support the WOF Institute, I can’t, at this time, squeeze anymore out of my budget for the patron status of the WOF Show podcast. I do regret that I will miss out on what will soon be only available to patrons. Is there a consideration to share that premium podcast content with Institute subscribers?

    Tara made a comment about sharing the premium podcast content with Institute subscribers. I am also in that boat. Would like to see thoughts about this. Thanks!

    Technically the amount of WoF episodes is about 148, not somewhere in the 170s. Because there are about 25 episodes that are repeats of Bishop Barron’s lectures. But this is by no means a criticism–I’m just being nerdy. And 148 is still A LOT. Fairly substantive, too.

    Perhaps you could clarify something for me. My parish was fortunate to view THE MASS recently and in discussion that followed it was said that sins were forgiven during the penitential rite at the beginning of Mass (venial only). I am confused as I had been taught that sins were forgiven only in confession when the priest wore the special stole. ???

    would love to participate in future of Word on Fire. I already donate monthly and will be happy to make another donation to patronage. Bishop Barron continues to bless my journey and I share with RCIA group in my parish. God bless you.

    What is the name of the book that Bishop Barron is reading on Homosexuality and the Vatican? Does the Bishop think it is not good as it is a tragic topic or not good in the sense of not well written? Thank you, God Bless.

    I do not have iTunes or RSS. What about subscribing through utube or sent by email as your Lenten reflections are sent.
    Tell us more about hearing from website link. I now listen to Sunday homilies on the Sunday Mass readings. I’m a very senior listener and find navigating internet without a specific link.
    First caught you on EWTN and have been blessed by your teachings. Keep up the blessed work.

    What is the name of the JPII study that Bishop Barron is reading?

    Brandon, I can’t hear you speaking to Bishop Barron. Why did you fade out? Is there no one available to let you know this? Please be aware of this, and don’t allow this to happen again. Impossible to do something away from the computer and still enjoy the conversation. (The conversation appears to be one sided).

    Thank you and continue your good works.

      Yes Brandon’s voice sounded muffled and at lower volume. I did not hear it fade out though.

  10. I tried all day (June 1) to become a patron ($100 per month) but was repeatedly told to try again because there were too many requests. The total number of patrons added for the day was less than ten. I was able to sign up for the premium package on Church militant in less than 15 minutes! What is wrong with the site?

  11. I’m enthusiastic about Word on Fire. But I’m not able to keep up with the Bishop, who really is on fire with the Spirit of God. Blessings
