Several times, I have mentioned an upcoming 10-part documentary on Catholicism, expected to be released in September. This is not your garden variety documentary. It is a major and visually spectacular undertaking by Chicago Archdiocese priest, blogger and You Tube evangelist, Fr. Robert Barron and his Word On Fire staff.
Archbishop Fulton Sheen once said, “There are not over a hundred people in the United States who hate the Catholic Church. There are millions, however, who hate what they wrongly believe to be the Catholic Church.” That is one of the reasons behind the project; to set out to tell the Catholic story from those who are living, breathing and practicing the faith.
Fr. Barron and his crew traveled throughout the world, from Italy, France, Ireland and Spain to Israel, India, Uganda and Mexico, to capture the essence, glory, history and beauty of Catholicism.
I have seen several previews but this one, captures the fullness and magnificence of the project:
