Smart, Helpful and Encouraging
Bishop Barron’s podcasts are practical and helpful in living a successful, non-self-serving life. He intelligently presents the case for a loving God and Jesus as God from God and Light from Light. It is extremely helpful for me as a committed Catholic and information security researcher in reaching scientific people for Christ.
Transformed my life!
Sean - Fairfax Virginia
Bishop Barron’s groundbreaking Catholicism video series and his podcasts have deepened my love for Christ and his holy church.
I listen to your podcast on Sunday morning while getting ready for mass. It helps me to think of readings in ways I never have before as well as helping me prepare my mind and soul for mass. God bless you!

Bishop Barron’s Sermons
Jeanine from Long Island
I listen to his eloquent sermons on Friday to prepare for Sunday mass. He is a gifted preacher and so smart and clever! So grateful for Bishop Barron and his Word on Fire crew.
Bishop Barron’s explanations makes scripture come alive and helps me to practically live out my faith and grow closer to God.
Bishop Barron for Pope
Phenomenal gift for sharing the truth mysteries & complexities of faith & morals & the modern world issues. Can’t seem to get enough of his preaching!!! Let those who have ears hear the gifts of Bishop BArron!
This Obispo Knows What’s Up
Bishop Barron describes our faith tradition so well. I learn something new in each episode. Mil gracias Obispo!
Please be the next POPE!!
We need you Bishop! The world needs to hear you!
Jung and our journey
Fr. Barron has the rare quality; the gift of conveying his deep thinking and knowledge with the finesse I have not come across in decades. In the world we inhabit at this time and place, how gratifying to discover Fr. Barron. He is salve to my battered brain. My thirsty soul. Thank you father.🔥
Just What was Needed Today
Working with people in community and Christian Education is often daunting. It is frustrating to see folks in turmoil and need continue to repeatedly make the same poor decisions. Today I questioned our ability to help. Then, I listened to this sermon and hear this fresh perspective of God’s “hero’s journey” on our behalf. If God doesn’t give up on me, then by the grace of God I will continue to love and serve our clients. Perhaps helping them embark on their own hero’s journey. Thank you, Bishop Barron.
Never alone on our adventures
Bishop, you inspire me to be a better person of faith. I was raised Catholic and follow Jordan Peterson. He gets very emotional when he talks about young people who tell him how much his teachings mean to them. He cries when he says what words of encouragement can do, and this is what young people need today, to ignite them to nobility and responsibility. For me this is when God says “go and do not be afraid. I will always be with you.” Knowing this gives me courage, and I believe the Church has a role in guiding young people to know that they can’t go on their adventure alone. Reason is not enough. They need something beyond themselves, faith in God, to guide them and encourage them on their adventure.
I receive with much pleasure Bishop Barron’s inspired words. I will be forever grateful for his insights that have made me live my Faith in a deeper way.
Great Barron does such a great job making the gospels so compelling and understandable. So happy he provides this gift to we Catholics
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!
Robert Henry Holtz
Bishop Barron is the best! The best Jerry! The Best! No podcasts in June??
Love the richness of these reflections!
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!
Changed my life
Bishop Barron and his amazing team have produced such illuminating programs about our rich faith. I am so grateful for his enlightened, thoughtful, scholarly explanations on the readings, church doctrine, the Pivotal Players. I’m hooked! May God richly bless you all for your evangelism in a secular world.

Overwhelmed with the access to this great direction for my soul and apologetics.
Bearer of The Good News
We all need this light in our life
Thank Bishop you for reminding us of God great love for all us!! Love listening to your podcasts 💗🙏🏼!
I love being Catholic and Bp Barron reminds me why I do!
Bishop Barron’s homilies are keenly insightful, relevant, and a source of spiritual nourishment. No matter your depth of faith, his insights are good for thought and good for the soul.
Bishop Barron’s podcasts are insightful and inspirational for all People not just Catholics.
Acceptance of mission
If this was the only podcast show out there it would be more than enough. What a great blessing the word on fire ministry is. God bless bishop Barron and all who make this possible
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.
Perfect to the point talks.
A Must Listen for EVERY Christian
BC Raven 44
Bishop Barron’s sermons are a staple of our Sunday worship. We listen to him in the car on our way to breakfast, right after Mass. Educational, enlightening, uplifting, and inspiring—these sermons are sure to deepen your faith and bring you to a fuller understanding of the Catholic-Christian tradition handed down from Jesus and his Apostles
Good, True, and Beautiful
Bishop Barron is so wonderful. He speaks with such enthusiasm, interest, and love for God and the Catholic Church. Listening to him has truly deepened my faith! God bless you Bishop Barron and the Word on Fire team!
I love to listen to Bishop Barron’s sermon before I go to Mass. It helps to prepare myself better to hear what God has to say.
You really learn about the richness of the Catholic faith. Bishop Barron is truly a compelling and inspirational speaker.
Preparing for Mass
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!
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.
Love, love, love these podcasts
There's a way
I listen to Bishop Baron’s podcasts over and over. They have the best content ever for someone like me who received “dumbed down” religious education. Great for Catholics in non-Catholics a like!
Every Christian Should Listen to this
Bishop Barron explains the Gospel reading well and gives great insight into what the Gospel reading means.
These podcasts help me on my journey towards Christ.I love immersing myself in my Catholic Faith. It keeps me inspired all week. The Mass continues all week thru Bishop Barron!!
Even if the priest at your parish preaches the gospel well, you should STILL listen to these
Always has great insight!
The best preacher the Catholic Church has
I’ve heard probably all his recorded homilies over eight years. It has deepened my faith and nourishes my intellect.
Great way to start my week
Bishop Barron’s homilies always are an insightful look into the gospel readings and our culture today. He does a great job explaining the meaning behind the readings, our faith, and making it relatable to our every day lives. Thank you for providing this great podcast!
Begin with text and builds a sturdy bridge
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
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!
Great synthesis of the Sunday readings. Really helps me have concrete take always from mass every week. Super appreciate Bishop Baron making this a part of his content regime with everything he has going on.
Pentecost and everything.
My guru , my prayers and gratitude to Bishop Barron for helping me make it through one more day in truth and in love.
Very grateful for this Podcast and WOF ministries
If you’re not doing so already, do yourself a favor, and prep for the Sunday readings with this podcast. Listen to it in the car on the way to Church or use as a morning meditation. Seriously, it’s terrific!
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.
James from Stafford
I look forward to this message each week. I am 69 years old and love it when Bishop Baron opens a new window to my relationship with Jesus. Many, many thanks to all at Word on Fire and May God richly bless you.
I cannot imagine a Sunday going by without listening to Bishop Barron‘s take on the sacred scripture readings for the mass. He is such a treasure for the church. If you want to understand the church and scripture in a more profound way, subscribe to this podcast!
My Sunday morning prep talk...
I love to listen to him on my way to mass. So much good information!!
