If you haven’t discovered Fr. Robert Barron yet, you’re in for a treat. If you are familiar with his Word On Fire ministry or his Catholicism series*, then you know this set of reflections on the Gospel readings for the Sundays during Lent, compiled from the series, is going to be good. (These are free — along with a lot of other great things — on his blog, by the way. Or watch the videos below.)
Week One, Part One and Part Two
From the description on the Word On Fire blog:
With the ashes having faded from our foreheads and the penitential season of Lent now underway, we offer you some spiritual food-for-thought from the CATHOLICISM series. Matt Leonard, Director and Editor of the series, compiled a collection of weekly clips that relate to each Lenten Sunday’s Gospel reading.
For your initial study and reflection, the readings for this upcoming First Sunday of Lent are available here.
Father Barron’s sermon for Sunday can be accessed here.
Finally, watch the compiled Catholicism footage relating to the week’s Gospel and answer the corresponding questions [at Word On Fire].
*If you haven’t had the opportunity to watch the Catholicism series, I highly recommend that you get hold of a set or watch episodes on EWTN in March. Watch with friends and family. Discover (or re-discover) the beauty that is Catholicism. Buy from Word On Fire. From Amazon.
