Fr. Robert Barron Teaches Tenets of Faith on Catholic Television During Lent

Fr. Robert Barron, founder of WordOnFire.org shares his insights about the seven Cardinal Sins and their counterparts, the Cardinal and Theological virtues, as well as the Eucharist and blessing in the lives of believers. These programs will air on Catholic television stations around the United States.

WHO: Fr. Robert Barron, founder of WordOnFire.org and the Francis Cardinal George Chair of Faith and Culture at The University of St. Mary of the Lake/Mundelein Seminary in Mundelein, Illinois

WHAT: Catechetical Programs:
Seven Deadly Sins, Seven Lively Virtue: Fr. Barron discusses the Seven Deadly Sins—those great spiritual blocks that inhibit our flourishing in relationship to God and to one another. He also presents the Seven Lively Virtues that offer healing to our sin-sick souls and set us on the right path to salvation.

Eucharist: Fr. Barron explains why the Eucharist is not a luxury, but a necessity. Without It, Barron explains, “we would, in a spiritual sense, starve to death.”

Untold Blessing: Three Paths to Holiness: Fr. Barron paints a beautiful and mysterious image of what it takes to be a follower of “The One who is, Jesus Christ.” The greatest calling for all of us is to be a saint. Our ultimate path to holiness is full of untold blessings.

Conversion: Following the Call of Christ: “Follow Me,” Christ says to Matthew. He is also calling each one of us into a deeper relationship with Him. They were people just like you and they were called to become better than they were before. “Jesus Christ calls us in thousands of different ways to follow Him as we strive on the path for Spiritual Excellence.” Now we must act if we are to be converted to Christ
