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

In the past 20-30 years preachers have become enamored with seeker sensitive relevance. Others react to this by taking comfort mere doctrinal correctness. The Bishop starts in the right place and then builds a bridge to the sheep. Right Biblical thinking applied compassionately is a rare combination. Find it here.
As a newly baptized Catholic, I really look forward to Bishop Barron’s homily each week. He always speaks what needs to be said. However, it’s hard to hear the end of his homily because the background music is way to loud! I’d be happy to record some classical marimba music to overlay instead!
Great synthesis of the Sunday readings. Really helps me have concrete take always from mass every week. Super appreciate Bishop Baron making this a part of his content regime with everything he has going on.
Bishop Barron’s groundbreaking Catholicism video series and podcasts have increased my love of the faith!
My guru , my prayers and gratitude to Bishop Barron for helping me make it through one more day in truth and in love.
If you’re not doing so already, do yourself a favor, and prep for the Sunday readings with this podcast. Listen to it in the car on the way to Church or use as a morning meditation. Seriously, it’s terrific!
Most days I read from the Magnificat; first I start with the readings in the Mass, next to Morning or Evening Prayer THEN to Bishop Barron’s daily email for help to better understand the key points. These podcasts further supplement prayerful reflection.
I look forward to this message each week. I am 69 years old and love it when Bishop Baron opens a new window to my relationship with Jesus. Many, many thanks to all at Word on Fire and May God richly bless you.
I cannot imagine a Sunday going by without listening to Bishop Barron‘s take on the sacred scripture readings for the mass. He is such a treasure for the church. If you want to understand the church and scripture in a more profound way, subscribe to this podcast!
I love to listen to him on my way to mass. So much good information!!
Bishop Barron is able to draw out beauty and power in passages I've heard hundreds of times! The Gospel becomes brand new again! I look forward to each one every week!
Bishop Barron has many gifts of the Holy Spirit! I am so grateful that he readily gives us the gifts of wisdom and hope through his homilies. Thank you!!!
I am currently going through RCIA. Bishop Barron is one of those people who is very instrumental in bringing my wife and Me into the church. His love of the church and its truth and beauty are very evident. He is so engaging you can't help but be drawn in to see what this is all about.
Bishop Barron’s explanations of the weekly readings for the Catholic Church are always short, interesting and packed with information about Christ and His life. He combines an ability to take stories and anecdotes from 1000’s of years and make them meaningful to you. He has a command of history, philosophy and psychology to teach the truth of Christ. This podcast is great if you are interested in getting more from the Bible readings of the Church (Liturgy of the Word) or looking for more information on Christ and Christianity.
I can always use more truth in my life!
What a blessing it is to be able to hear Bishop Barron’s sermon each week. His insights on the gospel always help make it come alive to me. Thank you so much for taking the time to share this!
I love the way Bishop Barron uses philosophy and real world knowledge to bring the gospel alive. He does it with such passion, we listen to it as a family every Sunday before Mass.
Thanks
Best pod cast EVER if you want to learn more about your catholic faith. Especially cradle Catholics!!!
I really look forward to the Word on Fire Show each week. Bishop Barron provides, in a concise and entertaining format, thoughtful and edifying spiritual content that helps reorient both the mind and the heart toward Our Lord and His Church. Highly recommended!
Even though I attend Mass regularly and our parish priest’s sermons are great I looked forward to Bishop Barron’s sermons He makes it all sounderstandable
I am always amazed at how much more I love and understand my faith through Bishop Barron's homilies. Thank you Bishop. Your videos and podcasts have played a big part of my spiritual journey.
I listen to Bishop Barron's sermons to help me understand the readings for the week. His insight not only provides a theological explanation but practical application as well - how we can apply the Word in our daily lives. This aspect has been especially helpful in my own life.
This is such a great gift to our soul / heart Thank you Bishop Robert Barron
Bishop Barron is relatable, brilliant and engaging. He will satisfy your mind and heart. You will feel like you didn't waste your day after you listen to his podcast.
I met Bishop Barron after a talk he gave in Washington DC a few years ago and confirmed in person what I sensed in the sermins and Word on Fire films: He is extraordinarily humble and accessible. Praise God that he is so committed to public ministry. Only Pope Francis tops him for excellent homilies!
Professional, informative, never disrespectful or pandering. Solid Catholic teachings.
The Bishop does a marvelous job explaining Catholic theology through this podcast. Great supplement to Sunday mass!
It's become a habit to listen to Bishop Barron's homily before weekend Mass. Listening ahead of time allows me to get deeper into Sunday's liturgy. Sometimes Bishop Barron makes suggestion to read a chapter which again, adds to the teachings of Sunday's liturgy. Love, love, love this podcast and the work of Word On Fire!
Bishop Barron continues to strengthen my faith every day. I thank God for his ministry.

5/5

Incredible podcast, Look forward to it each week
Each week this is a must listen for those of us who have talented priests and those who may be looking for a little more substance from their weekly homily. Bishop Baron is a brilliant man and his sermons help bring to life the readings each week. I especially love how he uses his knowledge of the Greek language and the historical context of the scripture to place us with the writer when breaking down the text. Listing each week before mass will help you have an engaged experience at mass and will focus your mind while listening to the readings and your priest’s homily. I think Bishop Barron’s approach can be especially useful with young adults or those in your life who may diminish Christianity as some sort of ritual or superstition. Thank you, Bishop Barron!
I listen to Bishop Barron’s sermon on my way to mass Sunday morning. His homilies are wonderful addition to my pastor’s sermons. I also go back and listen multiple times....each time I pick up more meaning which deepens my faith. Thank you for all you do. God bless you always!!
The go to podcast for a proper interpretation of the Sunday readings.
Bishop Barron is the best Catholic preacher in the US. I have listened to every sermon, beginning in Dec 2000 and each one is a gem in itself. He is gifted, well read and prepared, insightful, funny, authoritative, etc etc. No Catholic should ever complain again about the quality of the sermons they hear in their parish - just tune into Bishop Barron's weekly podcast!
Bishop Barron’s ability to put readings into historical context and convey the message at its deepest level has been one of the most significant reasons my faith has grown. I’m so grateful for these podcasts every week and I continue to listen to old ones as well on a regular basis.
I love listening everyday! Some I’ve listened to two or three times and every time I hear something new. Such a great reminder of Gods mercy and love for us! Thank you Bishop Barron! Sincerely Debbie Waters
I really enjoy in listening to Bishop Robert Barron's sermons. I enjoy his works and looking forward for any new materials. Hope one day I can follow his footsteps as an lay evangelist, theologist, and philosopher by learning from sermons that God inspires him.
Amazing content! Essential in my transition from a non-practicing Christian to an invigorated Catholic. Love what Bishop Barron is doing!
If you do one thing on your weekend before you go to mass, it should be to listen to Bishop Barron's sermons. They are always so thought provoking and really help flesh out the readings.
I have listened to all of these--as a new Catholic, I learned so much from Bishop Barron. He does an excellent job explaining Catholic theology through the scripture readings each week. Highly recommended.
Bishop Baron and his cohost address concerns of today's Catholic, offering positive ideas for modern life. Additionally, they give us intellectual and useable facts for discussion with believers and non-believers alike. I have benefitted immensely from listening
Bishop Barron is a deep student of the Bible and Catholic theology, and his homilies reflect that. This is a great supplement to whatever homily you hear at your local parish. To hear Bishop Barron on a broader array of topics, try out the Word on Fire show podcast.
Absoluutelu the beat. Inspiring, informative, Bishop Barron makes the difficult to discern easy to understand. He gives light to the brilliance of Catholicism, and helps make it's value relevant for people in the modern world.
Bishop Barron brings each week's readings to life. I listen on my way to Mass in the car, but then am sometimes disappointed in my own priests lackluster preaching. I wish he would subscribe!!
Bishop Barron is easily the most effective and inspiring Catholic preacher I have ever heard. He does such a fantastic job of melding hefty intellectucal insights with practical advice. He explains himself in a clear, compelling, and interesting way. He is a true powerhouse of the new evangelization. Wow, thank God his sermons are available to such a wide audience through this podcast!
Helps you understand what Catholicism and Christianity is really all about. Very engaging; makes you think deeply
This is my favorite Catholic and Christian podcast. Bishop Barron helps you understand scripture in relationship to today's culture. His sermon greatly enhances my Sunday Mass experience, I usually listen on my way to Mass.
If only every homilist were as good, or even half as good, as Bishop Barron! Every Catholic should supplement their Sunday Mass with Barron's sermons. You'll be amazed at how much you learn! And, if you really want to learn, listen to his weekly Word on Fire Show podcast as well.
Thoroughly enjoy Bishop Barron's Homilies. Instructive insights that help faith flourish within.
