Lots of people have questions for Fr. Barron, but between running Mundelein Seminary and spearheading Word on Fire, he just doesn't have enough time to answer all of them.
Yet we know your questions are important. That's why today we're launching a new way to connect with Fr. Barron and provide a quicker, more streamlined way for him to answer your questions.
We're calling it #AskFrBarron, and here's how it works. Each month, we'll invite questions regarding a specific topic, and then we'll select three of the most popular ones. Fr. Barron will then personally respond to those three questions, either through text or video, and then we'll share his responses through his Facebook page and this blog.
For this first round of questions, we'll just have a general theme--ask whatever you'd like regarding God, faith, morals, philosophy, Jesus, or the Church. Submit your question to Fr. Barron in one of three ways:
1. Ask using the form below.
Simply type out your name, your question, hit submit, and we'll receive it within seconds!
2. Ask using Facebook.
On Fr. Barron's Facebook page you'll find a post dedicated to #AskFrBarron. Just leave a comment on that post asking your question. Also, please "Like" any other questions in the thread that seem interesting. When we choose questions for Fr. Barron to answer each week, we'll especially target those receiving the most "Likes."
3. Ask using Twitter.
Once you're logged-in to Twitter (if you're new, sign-up here) simply click this link, enter your question, then click "Tweet." By tagging your tweet with the hashtag #AskFrBarron you'll submit your question. Also, be sure to retweet good questions that other people ask (you can see all of them here). When we see questions with several retweets, we'll know it's one that Fr. Barron should address.
Our hope is that over the coming years, this will be a simple, quick way for Fr. Barron to personally answer hundreds of your questions. Hope you enjoy the dialogue!
