"Catholicism" is the long-awaited evangelical work of Fr. Robert Barron, professor of systematic theology at St. Mary of the Lake Seminary in Mundelein, Illinois. In addition to rock solid scholarship and theology, the DVD series is filled with beautiful cinematography, which is used to illustrate the theological points in the series. As Fr. Barron points out, the Catholic Church is and always has been a Church that embraces both the "right and left brain" of humanity. It is a Church of science AND art, and the imagery in the DVD series is far more than fluff or filler. The art depicted is ITSELF theology, and is very compelling. Fr. Barron reminds us over and over again of the historicity of Jesus, and we see compelling modern examples of the Gospels in practice. This series is mandatory viewing for anyone with a serious interest in the Catholic Church historically and today. This will be one of the great evangelical works of modern times.
This is a ten- part documentary series. Each week we will view a different episode. For example the first week: Episode 1: Amazed and Afraid: The Revelation of God Become Man, we journey with Father Robert Barron to the mysterious and sacred sites of the Holy Land. From Caesarea Phillipi, to the Sea of Galilee, to Jerusalem, and finally to the eternal city of Rome. Fr. Barron illuminates the Catholic Faiths conviction that Jesus of Nazareth is the promised Messiah and the revelation of God become man in Christ.
The film will last for 60 minutes and then we will have a discussion about the film. Msgr. Pedone has agreed to join us for this journey, I hope others will also join us and together we will travel deeper into our Faith.
