About


Know the Faith. Share the faith.

The Catholic Faith is not about myths or legends, symbols or literary devices. It’s about an encounter so overwhelming that you want to tell the whole world. It is an encounter with Jesus Christ.

Throughout history the call of Christ has sent people to the corners of the earth with a message of great joy, a message that has built civilizations, inspired cultures, and even sent some to prisons and to their graves.

We have the same call - that’s the New Evangelization.

This new documentary series from Fr. Barron’s Word On Fire, continues the story of CATHOLICISM and explores the Church’s mission and the challenges of contemporary culture.

 With the original CATHOLICISM series, Fr. Barron took us on a journey around the world deep into the Faith. Now, experience this Faith in action in CATHOLICISM: The New Evangelization.

 This 90-minute film tells us what the New Evangelization is and then takes us on a fascinating tour to witness examples of new ardor, new expressions and new methods of evangelization in action.

 This multi-disc DVD set also includes 4 hours of extra features including two Fr. Barron speeches and full interviews and insights on the New Evangelization with George Weigel, Ross Douthat, Brad Gregory, and Brandon Vogt.

 


 

Chapter/Lesson One: “Introduction”

“What is the New Evangelization?”, Why is it worthwhile?” and “How does one do it?” Father explains how the concept of a “new” evangelization began to take shape in the second Vatican Council. Later, Pope John Paul II called for new ardor, new expressions and new methods to reach out to an increasingly secular culture, especially in the West. This calling is not just the responsibility of the Church at large; it is also the responsibility of each individual Catholic who has been baptized into a “missionary vocation.”

 

Chapter/Lesson Two: “New Ardor”

New enthusiasm, new energy and renewal from the Holy Spirit constitute “new ardor.” Today, we need a new passion for the mission of Jesus Christ. Fr. Barron takes us behind the scenes at World Youth Day to show us energetic examples of new ardor. The deepest source of Christian ardor is the resurrection, which fuels us to actively reach out in love to others with the “Good News.”

 

Chapter/Lesson Three: "New Expressions-Part I"

It’s not an expression of a different truth, but the same truth proclaimed and lived by Christ, that we have to express in a different cultural setting. Secularism tries to push God out of the public square and deny his existence. Fr. Barron explains why secularism is on the rise and how we should respond.

 

Chapter/Lesson Four: "New Expressions-Part II"

It’s not an expression of a different truth, but the same truth proclaimed and lived by Christ, that we have to express in a different cultural setting. Secularism tries to push God out of the public square and deny his existence. Fr. Barron explains why secularism is on the rise and how we should respond.

 

Chapter/Lesson Five: “New Methods”

Fr. Barron calls for “using the means and methods of our time to evangelize.” We gain insight from J.R.R. Tolkien, a fantasy fiction writer, and Fulton Sheen who won an Emmy for his Catholic preaching on a major, non-religious television network. Fr. Barron encourages us all to use new means like the Internet and social media to evangelize today.

 

Chapter/Lesson Six: "Faith In Action"

The New Evangelization Formation Program also includes a sixth workshop-style session that guides participants in developing their own new evangelization action plan, either as individuals or as a Catholic group/parish. This section is based on selected clips from the interviews conducted for the series.

Turn Your Faith Into Action

CATHOLICISM  taught us what the Church believes and why. CATHOLICISM: The New Evangelization shows us how to put our faith into action with new ardor, new methods and new expressions.

Father Barron’s original CATHOLICISM series took us on a journey around the world and deep into the Faith. This new documentary takes another step on the journey, outlining the tenets of the New Evangelization and showcasing movements and individuals who have answered the call to spread the Good News in today’s increasingly secular culture.

 CATHOLICISM: The New Evangelization is accompanied by a study program for adult and mature teen faith formation, which was written by Brandon Vogt, author of “The Church and the New Media” and a well-known Catholic blogger and advocate of the Church’s evangelization efforts via the new media.
