Over 70,000 people have seen Bishop-elect Barron’s short documentary, “Heroic Priesthood”, which presents the demands and the joy of the priestly vocation. It shows how Christ’s invitation to priesthood offers a way of life that is athletic in its intensity and heroic in its form. 

The Word on Fire team just learned that “Heroic Priesthood”, which previously won the First Place Award of Excellence at the Best Shorts Competition, also just won a 2015 Telly Award for Best Religious Segment.

Below are some pictures of Bishop-elect Robert Barron and Fr. Steve Grunow, Word on Fire’s CEO, showing off the award:
