Wow. Just wow.
Father Robert Barron’s award-winning ten-part documentary series CATHOLICISM has been seen by millions and is now being used as an essential resource for the Church’s teaching and evangelization effort.
Now there’s a new project in the works at Fr. Barron’s Word on Fire Catholic Ministries. From the website:
In Spring 2014, Father Barron is beginning a new journey to unlock the truth behind the Catholic Church’s most influential people. CATHOLICISM: The Pivotal Players is a multi-part film series that illumines a handful of saints, artists, mystics, and scholars who not only shaped the life of the Church but changed the course of civilization.
The pivotal players include St. Irenaeus, St. Augustine, St. Benedict, St. Thomas Aquinas, St. Francis of Assisi, Michelangelo, St. Ignatius, St. Catherine of Siena, Bartolomé de Las Casas, G.K. Chesterton, and John Henry Newman.
Filming has begun this month on the episodes for St. Thomas Aquinas and St. Catherine of Sienna. To document the lives of these two saints, the Word on Fire production team will travel to Rome, Florence, Naples, Siena, Avignon and Paris.
You’re invited to watch as the multi-part series takes shape. If you’d like to receive videos directly in your inbox, sign up at the website.
