Father Robert Barron on Catholicism: A Journey Into The Heart Of The Faith “Catholicism is God’s Great YES! to humanity saying, “I want to share My Divine Life with You” -What is the Catholicism? A 2,000 living tradition? A worldview? A way of life? A relationship? A mystery? In Catholicism Father Robert Barron examines all these questions and more, seeking to capture the body, heart and mind of the Catholic faith. Starting from the essential foundation of Jesus Christ’s incarnation, life, and teaching, Father Barron moves through the defining elements of Catholicism — from sacraments, worship, and prayer, to Mary, the Apostles, and Saints, to grace, salvation, heaven, and hell — using his distinct and dynamic grasp of art, literature, architecture, personal stories, Scripture, theology, philosophy, and history to present the Church to the world. Paired with his documentary film series of the same title, Catholicism is an intimate journey, capturing “The Catholic Thing” in all its depth and beauty. Eclectic, unique, and inspiring, Father Barron brings the faith to life for a new generation, in a style that is both faithful to timeless truths, while simultaneously speaking in the language of contemporary life.

“when i was a child, i thought, it cannot be possible to have a split Church, a split Truth, a split Love so when i went to the Catholic Chapel as a Protestant, and i saw written above the door, “Jesus is here and waiting for you,” that humbled me and filled me with great love. so, God works in me in spite of myself and in religious life i found a place of freedom of Spirit, and the freedom of The Spirit In The Church. i found the Source of Life, Eternal Life, in the Gospels. God is closer to us than we are to ourselves. God is our sparkle, our eternal spring, the Source of True Life. each one of us has to find out how to live as a Christian but God is always here and waiting for us to talk to Him. God is Love. God is Mercy. we are happy because we are free to Love God. prayer is the most efficient thing we can do everyday. prayer changes us. prayer changes the world around us. take time in your day to read a passage of the Bible and reflect on God. pray for the people and for the world. it is in the depths of your soul where you hear God talking to you. all people want to hear God. all people want to love God and be loved by God.” -Sister Anne Lise Strom, Lunden Kloster, Norway

“Chapel of Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal” (France) -“O Mary, conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to thee.” This invocation, included in many prayers, was revealed to Catherine Laboure during an apparition of Our Lady on November 27, 1830 in Paris. During vespers in the chapel of the convent of the Sisters of Charity, located on Rue du Bac, France, the young novice saw the Blessed Mother for the second time. The first appearance dates back to the previous July, when the Virgin had confided that she had a difficult mission to accomplish. Above the altar, two pictures represent two sides of a medal. Catherine Laboure, who was then 24 years, heard the voice of Mary, who told her: “Have a medal struck upon this model. Those who wear it will receive great graces”. It was a request reiterated by Our Lady, who would appear again to the sister in December of the same year, again in the chapel of the Rue du Bac. In 1832, with the permission of the Bishop of Paris, Msgr. de Quellen, the first medals were cast. Some years later, in Rome, the great graces coming from the devotion were recognized, from those who adhered to the faith of the Church and wore this medal. Known worldwide as the Miraculous Medal, it is a reminder that above all, the love God has for mankind is truly miraculous. The image of Mary represented on the medal, with 12 stars around her head, would later inspire the European flag, as its creator, Arsène Heitz once explained. At the time of the three apparitions to Catherine Laboure, Mary spoke of the graces and gifts that God wanted to spread upon the Earth, but mankind no longer asks for through prayer. These are the words of Mary:”Come to the foot of this altar and here graces will be bestowed upon all,who ask with confidence and fervour.” “The rays are the symbol of the graces which I scatter on those who ask me”. “This small globe represents the entire world, particularly France and every single person.” “Have a medal struck upon this model. Those who wear it will receive great graces.”The medal is the extension of this faith in God, is a faith that Catherine Labourée lived in such silence that no one – except her spiritual director Fr. Aladel- knew that she had received apparitions, until her death. In Rome during 1917, St. Maximilian Kolbe, a Polish Franciscan friar who was later killed in the Auschwitz concentration camp taking the place of a father of a family, used this medal as the distinctive symbol for the Pious Union of the Militia of the Immaculata, which he founded. On July 27, 1947, Pope Pius XII canonized Sister Catherine Labourée, just 70 years after her death. Since then the body of the saint has been buried in the Chapel of the Rue du Bac in Paris, at the foot of the very altar where she saw the Madonna. PRAYER:You are blessed among all women!Blessed are you, for you have believed! The Almighty did wonders for you! The wonder of the divine motherhood! And now, the glory of your Son. You never cease to intercede for us poor sinners. You watch over the Church for you are its Mother. You watch over each of your Children. From God, you obtain for us, all graces that are symbolized by the rays of light which radiate from your open hands, and the only condition that you demand of us is that we approach with the confidence, the hardiness, and the simplicity of a child. And it is thus that you bring us before your Divine Son. Amen (Prayer of John Paul II, May 31, 1980, Rue du Bac)

“Peace is the fruit of the experience of God’s Divine Mercy in your life. Peace is the gift of God’s Mercy. the Lord never tires of forgiving. it is us who tire of asking for forgiveness but God never tires of forgiving us for everything everyday. God’s Love and Mercy is Boundless.” -Pope Francis -In another appearance to St. Faustina, the Christ Child told her, “… I keep company with you as a child to teach you humility and simplicity” (Diary, 184) — revealing to her the key virtues of the way of spiritual childhood. Jesus’ revelations here are very close to the spirit of St. Therese, “The Little Flower.” Therese wrote in her Autobiography: “Jesus has chosen to show me the only way that leads to the divine furnace of love; it is the way of childlike self-surrender, the way of a child who sleeps, afraid of nothing in its Father’s arms.” The way of spiritual childhood, however, is not childish. It is not excessively sentimental or naive. Rather, it involves a total surrender to our heavenly Father’s providential care — total abandonment of our own plans, opinions, and self-will, and radical trust in God. Saint Faustina knew very well how difficult such a childlike trust in God could be — especially in times of trouble and sorrow. She knew that the key was to rely on Jesus rather than herself every step of the way. One time, while adoring the Blessed Sacrament, she described a vision of the Blessed Virgin Mary holding the Baby Jesus in her arms. Mary told her “to accept all that God asked of [you] like a little child, without questioning.” Saint Faustina prayed to the Lord in response: “Do with me as You please; I am ready for everything, but You, O Lord, must not abandon me even for a moment” (Diary, 529).
