Title: CATHOLICISM STUDY PROGRAM - DISC 3 OF 5 - EPISODES 5 AND 6 (Includes DV 61791 to DV 61795)
Episode 5: The Indispensable Men: Peter, Paul And The Missionary Adventure. (58 minutes) Fr. Barron calls Peter and Paul "two indispensible men, the ones without whom the church never would have emerged and survived." In telling each man's story, Fr. Barron shows how the Holy Spirit worked though all the apostles and disciples to build the Church. Following the trail of these apostles as they took the Gospel to the ends of the earth, Fr. Barron presents the foundations of the apostolic faith, particularly the revelation of Christ's resurrection from the dead. From Ephesus, Corinth, Athens, and Rome and to the far reaches of the world, Fr. Barron traces the influence of these two great apostles and their enduring legacies in the life of the Church. Episode 6: A Body Both Suffering and Glorious: The Mystical Union Of Christ And The Church. (47 minutes) Clearly answering the question, "What is the Church?" Father Barron presents the reality of the Church as "one, holy, catholic, and apostolic." The Body of Christ can be seen on earth from the Church's center in Rome to the cities of New York, San Paolo, Manila, Namugongo and Uganda, while still exploring the Catholic faith's unique understanding of the relationship of the mystical union between Jesus Christ and his Church. Fr. Barron also explores the Catholic conviction that the life and presence of Christ continues to embrace humanity in all its joys and sorrows through the presence of the Church. Witness how the Mystical Body of Christ is a living organism that stretches from Rome to New York, Sao Polo, Manila, and Namugango, embracing humanity in all of its joys and sorrows. Fr. Robert Barron created this five DVD, ten session program as a thematic presentation of what Catholics believe and why, so all adults can come to a deeper understanding of the Catholic faith. Not a video lecture, Church History, or scripture study, this engaging and interesting formational program uses the art, architecture, literature, music and all the treasures of the Catholic tradition to illuminate the timeless treasures of the Church. It presents the strong ecclesial dimension of the Catholic faith - God's revelation through Jesus Christ and His Church.
