Friends, at the recent FOCUS SEEK, seminarians and young people discerning their vocation asked me range of questions about calling and vocations, including:

  • Did Bishop Barron ever consider religious life?
  • How should we use philosophy to approach and interact with theology?
  • What should we do about a “dark night of the soul” when it comes to discernment?
  • How should one discern between dating versus pursuing a religious vocation?
  • What should women in particular look for when discerning a religious order?
  • How should one sift through fears and anxieties during discernment?
  • What is something that Bishop Barron learned as a priest, that he wish he had known as a seminarian?

Modern psychiatry tends to downplay spirituality, but in today's episode of "The Word on Fire Show," Bishop Barron and Brandon discuss a new Scientific American article suggesting that "Psychiatry Needs to Get Right with God."

The author explains how belief in God is associated with significantly better treatment outcomes for many patients, and therefore patients should have the option to include spirituality in their treatment. 

A listener asks, where does one go to get the Catholic Church’s official interpretation of Scripture?

Earlier this year, Bishop Barron joined Sal Di Stefano from Mind Pump Media for a great conversation. They discussed the great social upheaval and political division in our culture—including its intellectual, moral, and spiritual dimensions—and why a purely secular framework is not enough to solve it.

Today we continue our series on “Understanding Genesis.” Last time we focused on Creation and today we’re discussing Adam, Eve, and the Fall. How should we understand the creation of Adam and Eve? What actually happened at the Fall? Bishop Barron and Brandon Vogt discuss.

A listener asks, why would Mark end his Gospel with the women not telling the Apostles about the resurrection?
