A master theologian and popular Catholic author offers inspiring insights into the mystery of Christ's presence in our lives. As festive as the film Babette's Feast and as profound as the work of Ronald Knox, this fresh look at the Eucharist brings to light the meanings of meal, sacrifice, and real presence, now and always.
Recently appointed by Pope Francis as Auxiliary Bishop for the Archdiocese of Los Angeles, Robert Barron, founder of Word on Fire Catholic Ministries, is best-known as host of the award-winning documentary series CATHOLICISM. He received a masters degree in Philosophy from the Catholic University of America and a doctorate in Sacred Theology from Institut Catholique de Paris and served as rector of Mundelein Seminary in IL. Author of numerous books, essays, and articles, he has appeared on NBC, CNN, EWTN, FoxNews, NBC, and PBS. Father Barron is a popular speaker at conferences and retreat centers nationwide and his pioneering work with evangelizing through new media led the late Cardinal Francis George to call him "one of the Church's best messengers."
