I doubt anyone who reads this blog is waiting on me to endorse/review Bishop Barron's new DVD series "Catholicism: the Pivotal Players"...but just in case...it is literally MUST SEE TV!
The saints of the Church are catechisms in the flesh - people who show us what it means to follow the call of the Gospel, and so our souls, looking for nourishment and inspiration, should never tire of hearing.
This sequel to the unbelievably amazing Catholicism series by Bishop Barron is a six-episode exploration of six major players in the Catholic Faith.
I love that the lineup includes 3 saints, one blessed, and two "nothings":
St. Francis of Assisi
St. Thomas Aquinas
St. Catherine of Sienna
Blessed John Henry Newman
I learned so many interesting facts - such as the role Notre Dame University played in the life of G.K. Chesterton and SO MANY other interesting tidbits.
"The Pivotal Players", like its predecessor, is shot with amazing skill, the music is perfectly on point, and the series is such a synthesis of Truth, Beauty and Goodness! It is a must-see and I can't recommend it highly enough.
Parish's should watch it
Teachers should watch it
Parents should watch it with their children
and on and on
