New Series on Catholicism by Fr. Barron

The Catholicism Project - Here are some highlights from the upcoming (September 2011) ten part series that will be on DVD and on TV. The cinematography is just stunning. Use the HD 720i  mode if your internet connection will handle it and view in full screen. They have really capture the magnificence of our cultural and faith-filled heritage in a world wide tour that witnesses the centuries of events, art and architecture that our Church has inspired.

Word on Fire Catholic Ministries offers a vision of the Catholic Faith, which has never before been seen. This vision seeks to explore, through a global journey, the living culture of the Catholic Church. From the lands of the Bible, to the great shrines of Europe, to the shores and heartland of America, to the mysteries of Asia, to the rich landscapes of Latin America, to the beating heart of Africa – and beyond, witness the passion and glory of the faith that claims over a billion of the earth’s people as its own. Now in production. Ten part series for TV and DVD: Production to be released Fall of 2011.

The fourth episode promises to be especially beautiful for it will focus on the Mother of God:

Episode IV – “Our Tainted Nature’s Solitary Boast – Mary, the Mother of God”

In this episode, Father Barron masterfully correlates the Catholic Faith’s testimony to the revelation of God in Christ with the vivid practices of reverence offered to his Mother. Father Barron will journey to the humble remains of Mary’s house in Nazareth, to the ruins of the ancient city of Ephesus and to the great Marian shrines of Lourdes and Guadalupe. This episode will also feature commentary on some of the most remarkable imagery of the Mother of God created by the world’s greatest artists.

    The series looks great.

    It may not come up, but it should be known that Fr. Barron, like so many of the “Radical Orthodoxy” theologians (I’m not affiliating Fr. Barron with this group), seems to blame modernity on Duns Scotus’ formulation of the univocal concept of being, betraying a fundamental misunderstanding which results in a serious misrepresentation of our Blessed’s opinion. This effectively poisons the well for many philosophers and theologians who may have otherwise been interested in the “great intellectual cathedral” that can help “dispel the clouds of atheism” which Scotus so deftly constructed (Cf., Paul VI, Alma parens).

    Ave Maria!

    Thanks, Jared. Good to hear from you. The “great intellectual cathedral” is appropriate in regard to a series that so well demonstrates the beauty of the Cathedrals. Let us pray for Fr. Barron in this regard.
