1. Interview with Fr Robert Barron

“I found [the arguments for God’s existence]so fascinating and compelling that it lit a fire in me that has never really gone out… it lit a fire for God…”
A  diocesan priest for Chicago, Fr. Robert has become well-known for his evangelisation project “Word on Fire.”  He has a Masters in Philosophy and a Doctorate in Sacred Theology.  Recently Fr. Barron has travelled the world producing a groundbreaking ten-part documentary series called Catholicism.

2. Michael Jaksic’s Story

  “The whole Theology of the Body rang true in my heart!… I began to develop a passion for spreading the Catholic faith that I was falling in love with.” 
Michael’s encounter with Bl. John Paul II’s Theology of the Body changed his life. Following this, people began to comment he should become a priest. How would Michael, who always thought he would get married, respond to a growing hunch God was inviting him to the Priesthood?
