Title: CATHOLICISM STUDY PROGRAM - DISC 4 OF 5 - EPISODES 7 AND 8 (Includes DV 61791 to DV 61795)
Description:
Episode 7: Word Made Flesh, True Bread Of Heaven: The Mystery Of The Liturgy And The Eucharist. (49 minutes) Fr. Barron explores the ancient practices of the Church's worship that endure to this very day, and the notion that "all value is summed up in the Liturgy, the supreme act by which we commune with God." Considered by the Catholic Faith to be "the source and summit" of its identity and mission, the Eucharist is the central practice of the Church's culture. Fr. Barron describes all the parts of the Mass and shows how the Sacred Liturgy embodies the whole of the faith in such diverse places as Jerusalem, Rome, Chicago, Orvieto, and Mexico City. Fr. Barron explains the words, gestures, and meanings of the Church's Eucharist. Episode 8: A Vast Company Of Witnesses - The Communion Of Saints. (58 minutes) The story of the Church is told in the examples of those men and women who dedicated their lives to knowing and serving Jesus Christ. The Catholic faith is made visible in real human lives. Fr. Barron gives consideration to some of the Church's greatest heroes, and demonstrates how their extraordinary examples display both the passion and creative potential of the Catholic Church. Highlighting Katharine Drexel, Therese of Lisieux, Edith Stein, and Mother Teresa of Calcutta, Fr. Barron tells the story of the Church as a vast company of witness who are called by Christ to be a Communion of Saints. 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. Faith Clips contains 50 most frequently-asked questions on the Catholic faith and a clear, concise, video response from Fr. Barron on each one.
