Hopefully the bishop will address the “Filioque” controversy and defend the western church’s addition of the second person to the first person in the Nicene Creed regarding the “I believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life, who proceeds from the Father and the Son”. The original statement only had the “Father”, not the “Son”.

Great supplement to mass!

I love the weekly reflections on the readings by Bishop Robert Baron. The recent series on the Book of Revelation was really helpful as I read it in the Office of Readings as well as hearing Bishop Baron’s homilies.Today Inam wondering where the Homliy for Pentecost is, it has not been uploaded yet? I look forward to listening to it soon!

Bishop Barron is Incredible

Bishop Barron is fantastic. He does an outstanding job of taking a very complex subject and breaking it down into easily understandable chunks. Also, he uncovers and explains nuances in the readings that typical Catholics may miss.

Preparing for Mass

by cdrgigi on
Rating: ★★★★★

We have been listening to Bishop Barron’s homilies for many years and they are so helpful in our preparation for Sunday Mass. We read the Sunday readings from the Word Among Us and follow each with the weekly explanations from Exploring the Sunday Readings. We top that off with Bishop Barron so we feel pretty ready for our priest’s homily and the sacrifice of the Mass. This is such an outstanding resource. Thank you Bishop Barron!

Happy Bishop

Rating: ★★★★★

To hear a Bishop with a happy, energetic voice is a treat. The fact that he is quite knowledgeable and engaging is an added blessing. I just wish he would end with a question each time, to encourage us to keep thinking about our faith.

Begin with text and builds a sturdy bridge

by Outdeep on
Rating: ★★★★★

In the past 20-30 years preachers have become enamored with seeker sensitive relevance. Others react to this by taking comfort mere doctrinal correctness. The Bishop starts in the right place and then builds a bridge to the sheep. Right Biblical thinking applied compassionately is a rare combination. Find it here.

New outro music

by kjjohnson20 on
Rating: ★★★★☆

As a newly baptized Catholic, I really look forward to Bishop Barron’s homily each week. He always speaks what needs to be said. However, it’s hard to hear the end of his homily because the background music is way to loud! I’d be happy to record some classical marimba music to overlay instead!

Awesome podcast

Most days I read from the Magnificat; first I start with the readings in the Mass, next to Morning or Evening Prayer THEN to Bishop Barron’s daily email for help to better understand the key points. These podcasts further supplement prayerful reflection.

Concise & Precise: A Masterful Storyteller For Christ

by mjflight1 on
Rating: ★★★★★

Bishop Barron’s explanations of the weekly readings for the Catholic Church are always short, interesting and packed with information about Christ and His life. He combines an ability to take stories and anecdotes from 1000’s of years and make them meaningful to you. He has a command of history, philosophy and psychology to teach the truth of Christ. This podcast is great if you are interested in getting more from the Bible readings of the Church (Liturgy of the Word) or looking for more information on Christ and Christianity.
