Popular podcasting priest and apologist Fr. Robert Barron has announced an ambitious project. His Word on Fire Catholic Ministries plans to produce for TV and DVD a 10-part video series that presents the history and teaching of the Catholic Church “on our own terms.” Fr. Barron is calling his new project simply “Catholicism.” Still in production, this series is attracting a lot of positive attention. George Weigel has this to say about it:
“‘Catholicism’ could well become one of the most significant efforts ever to advance what Pope John Paul II called ‘The New Evangelization.’ Truth, goodness, beauty — they’re all here, in a stimulating and compelling exploration of the spiritual, moral, and intellectual riches of the Catholic world. This is the Catholic story told from inside, with knowledge, sympathy, and passion, rooted in friendship with Jesus Christ.”
