Catholicism is an opportunity to discover the rich heritage of the Catholic Church in an epic media experience. Catholicism is a groundbreaking ten-part documentary produced by Word on Fire Ministries that explores the living culture of the Catholic Church through a global journey: from the lands of the Bible to the great shrines of Europe, from the mysteries of Asia to the rich landscapes of Latin America, from the beating heart of Africa and beyond, you are invited to witness the passion and glory of the Catholic faith. Catholicism tells the story of the Church as only Father Robert Barron could do and carries the endorsement of Archbishop Timothy Dolan, Francis Cardinal George, and many others.
After the successful special advanced screening Saint Thomas More held of the first episode on November 20, 2010, we're excited now to once again invite you to dine together and share with us this journey as Father Robert Barron leads us to the mysterious sites and sacred places of the land of Israel. From the lush region of ancient Ceasarea Phillipi to the shores of the Sea of Galilee, from the holy city of Jerusalem and finally to the eternal city of Rome, Father Barron will use his pilgrimage to illuminate and explain the Catholic faith's conviction that Jesus of Nazareth is the promised Messiah and the revelation of God become man.
