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.

“The evangelization of Bishop Barron and the Word on Fire family brought me the Good News in an intellectual and respectful fashion that unceasingly slips by the defense mechanisms of my modern, conditioned sensibilities. The mission of Word on Fire helps me discern my vocation in evangelizing the unaffiliated while at the same time, continually transforming my own heart and mind to the infinite truth of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.”

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.

“I’m a cradle Catholic who ran away from the faith for 40 years. My return seven years ago coincided with a discovery of Bishop Barron’s YouTube film reviews. I found his Christian take on these films to be most interesting, and it wasn’t long before I was tuning in to more Word on Fire media. Bishop Barron and the Word on Fire team are very much part of my day-to-day life as a Catholic. I’m delighted to see how the ministry has grown and there is no doubt that Word on Fire is a key tool in my arsenal in this battle of good over evil in which we are all engaged.”


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.

“Having been baptized in the Eastern Orthodox Church, I first heard of Bishop Barron at a Jordan Peterson Podcast and was impressed. I searched for a Spiritual home in both the Orthodox and Protestant tradition/churches, and have been avidly studying the immense treasures of the Catholic Church via Word on Fire as well as numerous books from Bishop Barron. I’ve been attending Mass frequently and find it incredibly satisfying. I look forward to growing more and more in the Faith and I appreciate all that you are doing to spread the Good News.”

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.

“Your ministry woke me up to the disillusionment and emptiness of the secular culture that was seeping into me and harming my body, mind, and soul. This was my full return to the sacraments. Word on Fire brought me to re-encounter Christ, but with deeper clarity and understanding than in the Catholic formation of my youth. It has changed my life and led me into a deep love for Christ and the Catholic 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.
