Barron explores the different types of prayer: contemplation, adoration; petition; and intercession. In telling the stories of Catholics like Thomas Merton. St. Theresa of Avila and St. John of the Cross, Fr. Barron demonstrates how the human person can be transformed through prayer that manifests a deep, spiritual commitment centered in Christ. Fr.

The vision of the Church sees beyond this world and invites us to consider how this life is a preparation for an extraordinary world yet to come. Fr. Barron shows how this vision is supported by the mystery and truth of the Resurrection of Jesus. Fr.
