Stories of Impact
There are very few places on the Internet that I trust—but Word on Fire is one of the few that stays reliable, often has outstanding content, and delves into the important issues of the day.
I love the work that Word on Fire is doing and share the information with other folks. I thoroughly enjoy/use the books that I have gotten because they help enrich my grasp on the richness of our faith. As a Spiritual Director I find that I can use so much of the information to strengthen my ministry
My nephews were not raised with any faith. In their 30s, they discovered Word on Fire and Bishop Barron and joined the Catholic Church. I didn’t know this until my 38-year-old nephew died a year ago from cancer. It was such a comfort to me to know he died with a strong faith. Thank you for your work.
Thank you for your beautiful content—it is assisting me in developing a relationship with Jesus. I was trapped in the New Age movement for years, and needed help to move past a lot of confusion.
The work of Bishop Barron and Word on Fire helped bring me back to the church around 7 years ago. The Word on Fire Bible Gospels were my first time really approaching scripture outside of Mass. Reading through them for that first time sparked a love for the Bible in me that has stuck. I have since read through the entirety of the Old Testament and New Testament, and return to it daily. Thanks be to God for the work you do. I’m eternally grateful.
I plan to always support Word on Fire because the whole organization and Bishop Barron himself never back down or water down the Catholic faith. You tell it like it is and thoughtfully include and invite everyone to the truth, regardless of how it may differ with societal norms, especially in current times.
Take a look back at some of Word on Fire’s greatest moments from the last year—all made possible through the support of our generous donors. Through all these projects, the Holy Spirit is actively transforming hearts and leading people to a deeper relationship with Christ.
