We proclaim Christ in the culture by leading people to—or back to— the Catholic Faith.
Our content reaches millions of people each month—inspiring conversions to the Catholic faith and calling others to a deeper examination of their spiritual life. Leading with the truth, beauty and goodness of the Catholic tradition, Word on Fire uses new and emerging media to connect people to Christ.
We proclaim Christ in the culture by training evangelists.
The Word on Fire Institute is a community of more than 24,000 people with the mission and desire to be Christ-centered disciples who can be channels of grace and living invitations to come to know Jesus Christ through his Church. Institute members are using their training to evangelize in 90 countries around the world.
We proclaim Christ in the culture by inspiring encounters with the Gospel.
Word on Fire began when then-Father Robert Barron shared his weekly homilies on a Chicago radio station. Two decades later, Word on Fire has harnessed online media to proclaim the Gospel message to millions. More than 500,000 people receive our daily Gospel reflections via email every day, and Bishop Barron has shared more than 830 Sunday sermons to more than 3.6 million social media followers each week.
We proclaim Christ in the culture by evangelizing through truth, goodness, and beauty.
The intention of the Word on Fire movement is not to avoid the secular culture but to present to it and proclaim Christ within it. Beauty is the arrowhead of evangelization. Therefore, Word on Fire is committed to evangelizing through the beautiful and using new media platforms to show “seeds of the Word” in the culture that point to the source of beauty—Christ and His Church.
We proclaim Christ in the culture by calling people to prayer.
Jesus Christ is at the center of our Catholic Faith. Word on Fire’s Christo-centric approach to evangelization puts a strong emphasis on the Mass, Eucharistic Adoration, and personal prayer. Through our Liturgy of the Hours project, more than 22,500 people are joining in this communal prayer of the Church every day. Over 300,000 people now own volumes of the Word on Fire Bible to enhance their prayer life and grow in knowledge and understanding of God’s Word.
