Yes, yes. He is the Lord! And we owe everything to Him because he has given everything to us!
Thank you, Fr. Barron.

Let go. Let God!
This is what I believe He has trained me for the last few days. I am joyful I thought about Him that.

Listening to your guidance through this profound mystery, I heard a simplicity which is still far too complicated for me to intellectually understand. I am awed at your ability to take on the mystery and shed light on it to feed our souls, irreguardless of the intellects ability to box and tag. I praise God for you! God Speed!

This is truly declaration of the divinity of Jesus Christ. Out of all the books in the Bible, seems whatever I am reading, I am always drawn back to Paul's letters, most especially the Philippians. I love Paul.

I think his statement telling us how we should operate teaches to be aware and vigilant against deceptive ways of thinking; to be of one mind is an important thing to think about, a plea for unity, as it is what comes from within. I think, His gathering really does occur through us.

Your homily is so beautiful, i could listen to it over and over. I see this stretching to the fullest extent, this gathering in, as what it is we hear… the Love that surpasses all understanding.

One more beautiful, thought provoking message. My MP3 is loaded with your homilies, I listen to them every day and am blessed by them. Can't wait for Catholicism to air next month. God bless you and your work sweetly.

What also is striking about Jesus' death on the cross was that he committed no sin. Jesus did not have one thought of hatred for the soldiers or Jewish leaders, not one thought of revenge towards those who were taunting Him, not one desire that those who were crucifying Him (and that's all of us in our sinfulness) would be damned to hell. Jesus did not sin in His Passion and death. May we imitate Jesus' obedience to the will of the Father.

Fr. Barron,
Thank you for Word on Fire and all you are doing to enlighten our culture with the light of Christ. I have always been moved by this passage from St. Paul's letter to the Philippians. Whenever I have heard it poclaimed I get goosebumps! Thank you for breaking it open for me so that I can savor it's depth and beauty. God Bless you, and may your tribe increase!!!

Dear Fr Barron, I live in Australia and through my son in Michigan I have ordered Catholicism for our Parish in Hervey Bay. Cannot wait for it to arrive. Very excited. You are truly wonderful and I am spreading your Word on Fire to all, even my friends in South Africa. I will pray for you every day and the great work you are doing in spreading the Word. God bless you and your team.

I am always struck by St. Paul, how he was one who persecuted the church only to become of the church's greatest saints. You might even say St. Paul was the orginal Word on Fire.
God Bless
