Becoming A Saint

"Our ultimate goal is to be a saint. It is our greatest calling and what is desired for us by our Creator. Father Robert Barron paints a beautiful and mysterious image of what it takes to be a follower of, 'the One who is, Jesus Christ.'" Read more about Untold Blessing: Three Paths To Holiness at the Word On Fire online store.

I bought Untold Blessing in the Viewer's Choice DVD Pack, and I think it was some of the best money I ever spent. I've purchased quite a few of Fr. Barron's videos, and have loaned them all out over the last few months to friends and family for a variety of reasons and applications.

I think what makes Fr. Barron's media so compelling is his ability to hold our culture up against the truth, and to explain how our culture measures up against it in a way that everyone can understand. He doesn't shy away from those harder truths, either. In Untold Blessing: Three Paths To Holiness, Fr. Barron lays out for us what it means to have a properly ordered life and how to achieve it, in a way that inspires the viewer to strive for the prize.

Today as we honor all the saints in Heaven, may we each rededicate ourselves toward achieving our places with them.
