Reviews For Bishop Robert Barron’s Sermons - Catholic Preaching and Homilies

These sermons found me, when I didn’t know I was lost. What an amazing gift Bishop Barron offers to the world. I discovered his Sermons as the result of listening to Word on Fire, weekly. They speak to my heart and I bring his words into my life. Through Bishop Barron my understanding of the Gospel has blossomed, as his homilies translate the often hidden meanings. For an RCIA Student such as myself, these are an invaluable weekly treat before going to Sunday Mass! God Bless You.
I listen every week and go back to previous sermons..I’m learning a lot. Thank you very much Bishop. I’m loving Jesus more and more.

Great podcast, great source of inspiration.
Your homilies are clear, concise, compact yet full of information. Appreciate, when at times say once again something a second or third time to drive emphasis. You have a clear starting point with information that which touches the heart and a definitive ending point tiring things together. Very happy to know your focus this year to some extent will be more on the Old Testament Readings and maybe, how they might lead into the New Testament from your state with LORD JESUS CHRIST. The Alpha & Omega, GOD WHO Always Existed. With Great Heartfelt Appreciation & Deepest Respect,
Bishop Barron is the best! The best Jerry! The Best! So grateful for this! No homily for 01/12/20?
Listening to the podcast, I’m guaranteed to get a good sermon for each Sunday, which I don’t always get at Mass. Bishop Barron always has a rather insightful discussion of the scriptures.
I always consider Bishop Barron’s sermons a preview for Sunday. They’re a great source of inspiration! God Bless you, Bishop Barron and your Word On Fire team!
As a Protestant pastor I really enjoy the wisdom and conversation Bishop Barron and Brandon have.
Bishop Barron reignited my passion for my faith. He lit a fire 6 years ago, and forced me to learn as much as I could about being Catholic, but most importantly WHY I want to be Catholic. He helped bring my husband, brother in law, grandparents (in-law) back to the church.
Bishop Barron’s podcasts are practical and helpful in living a successful, non-self-serving life. He intelligently presents the case for a loving God and Jesus as God from God and Light from Light. It is extremely helpful for me as a committed Catholic and information security researcher in reaching scientific people for Christ.
Bishop Barron’s groundbreaking Catholicism video series and his podcasts have deepened my love for Christ and his holy church.
I listen to your podcast on Sunday morning while getting ready for mass. It helps me to think of readings in ways I never have before as well as helping me prepare my mind and soul for mass. God bless you!
Bishop Barron has a wonderful way of bringing to life the readings and/or message! So insightful and impactful to my every life and relationships with others! He also does an incredible job to help us understand the history, culture and the context. Thank you!! One of my favorite podcasts!!
Informative and encouraging. Helps give direction in life!
yes - 2nd reading - Fr. did great - was really looking forward to his comments on the Gospel - did he comment on this Sunday’s gospel somewhere else?
I listen to his eloquent sermons on Friday to prepare for Sunday mass. He is a gifted preacher and so smart and clever! So grateful for Bishop Barron and his Word on Fire crew.
Bishop Barron’s explanations makes scripture come alive and helps me to practically live out my faith and grow closer to God.
Phenomenal gift for sharing the truth mysteries & complexities of faith & morals & the modern world issues. Can’t seem to get enough of his preaching!!! Let those who have ears hear the gifts of Bishop BArron!
Bishop Barron describes our faith tradition so well. I learn something new in each episode. Mil gracias Obispo!
We need you Bishop! The world needs to hear you!
Fr. Barron has the rare quality; the gift of conveying his deep thinking and knowledge with the finesse I have not come across in decades. In the world we inhabit at this time and place, how gratifying to discover Fr. Barron. He is salve to my battered brain. My thirsty soul. Thank you father.🔥
Working with people in community and Christian Education is often daunting. It is frustrating to see folks in turmoil and need continue to repeatedly make the same poor decisions. Today I questioned our ability to help. Then, I listened to this sermon and hear this fresh perspective of God’s “hero’s journey” on our behalf. If God doesn’t give up on me, then by the grace of God I will continue to love and serve our clients. Perhaps helping them embark on their own hero’s journey. Thank you, Bishop Barron.
Bishop, you inspire me to be a better person of faith. I was raised Catholic and follow Jordan Peterson. He gets very emotional when he talks about young people who tell him how much his teachings mean to them. He cries when he says what words of encouragement can do, and this is what young people need today, to ignite them to nobility and responsibility. For me this is when God says “go and do not be afraid. I will always be with you.” Knowing this gives me courage, and I believe the Church has a role in guiding young people to know that they can’t go on their adventure alone. Reason is not enough. They need something beyond themselves, faith in God, to guide them and encourage them on their adventure.
I receive with much pleasure Bishop Barron’s inspired words. I will be forever grateful for his insights that have made me live my Faith in a deeper way. God Bless.
Great Barron does such a great job making the gospels so compelling and understandable. So happy he provides this gift to we Catholics

Hopefully the bishop will address the “Filioque” controversy and defend the western church’s addition of the second person to the first person in the Nicene Creed regarding the “I believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life, who proceeds from the Father and the Son”. The original statement only had the “Father”, not the “Son”.
I love the weekly reflections on the readings by Bishop Robert Baron. The recent series on the Book of Revelation was really helpful as I read it in the Office of Readings as well as hearing Bishop Baron’s homilies. Today Inam wondering where the Homliy for Pentecost is, it has not been uploaded yet? I look forward to listening to it soon!
Bishop Barron and his amazing team have produced such illuminating programs about our rich faith. I am so grateful for his enlightened, thoughtful, scholarly explanations on the readings, church doctrine, the Pivotal Players. I’m hooked! May God richly bless you all for your evangelism in a secular world.
Overwhelmed with the access to this great direction for my soul and apologetics.
We all need this light in our life
Thank Bishop you for reminding us of God great love for all us!! Love listening to your podcasts 💗🙏🏼!
I love being Catholic and Bp Barron reminds me why I do!
Bishop Barron’s homilies are keenly insightful, relevant, and a source of spiritual nourishment. No matter your depth of faith, his insights are good for thought and good for the soul.
Bishop Barron’s podcasts are insightful and inspirational for all People not just Catholics.
If this was the only podcast show out there it would be more than enough. What a great blessing the word on fire ministry is. God bless bishop Barron and all who make this possible
Bishop Barron is fantastic. He does an outstanding job of taking a very complex subject and breaking it down into easily understandable chunks. Also, he uncovers and explains nuances in the readings that typical Catholics may miss.
Perfect to the point talks.
Bishop Barron’s sermons are a staple of our Sunday worship. We listen to him in the car on our way to breakfast, right after Mass. Educational, enlightening, uplifting, and inspiring—these sermons are sure to deepen your faith and bring you to a fuller understanding of the Catholic-Christian tradition handed down from Jesus and his Apostles
Bishop Barron is so wonderful. He speaks with such enthusiasm, interest, and love for God and the Catholic Church. Listening to him has truly deepened my faith! God bless you Bishop Barron and the Word on Fire team!
I love to listen to Bishop Barron’s sermon before I go to Mass. It helps to prepare myself better to hear what God has to say.
You really learn about the richness of the Catholic faith. Bishop Barron is truly a compelling and inspirational speaker.
We have been listening to Bishop Barron’s homilies for many years and they are so helpful in our preparation for Sunday Mass. We read the Sunday readings from the Word Among Us and follow each with the weekly explanations from Exploring the Sunday Readings. We top that off with Bishop Barron so we feel pretty ready for our priest’s homily and the sacrifice of the Mass. This is such an outstanding resource. Thank you Bishop Barron!
To hear a Bishop with a happy, energetic voice is a treat. The fact that he is quite knowledgeable and engaging is an added blessing. I just wish he would end with a question each time, to encourage us to keep thinking about our faith.
I listen to Bishop Baron’s podcasts over and over. They have the best content ever for someone like me who received “dumbed down” religious education. Great for Catholics in non-Catholics a like!
Bishop Barron explains the Gospel reading well and gives great insight into what the Gospel reading means.
These podcasts help me on my journey towards Christ.I love immersing myself in my Catholic Faith. It keeps me inspired all week. The Mass continues all week thru Bishop Barron!!
I’ve heard probably all his recorded homilies over eight years. It has deepened my faith and nourishes my intellect.
