Journey Around the World and Deep into the Faith
“Experience the “Most Vivid Catechism Ever Created”*
“OUR TAINTED NATURE’S SOLITARY BOAST:
MARY, THE MOTHER OF GOD”
In this weeks episode, Father Barron masterfully correlates the Catholic Faith’s testimony to the revelation of God in Christ with the vivid practices of reverence offered to his Mother. Mary is explained as “an on-going presence, an actor in the life of the Church.” Father Barron journeys to the humble remains of Mary’s house in Nazareth, to the ruins of the ancient city of Ephesus and to the great Marian shrines of Lourdes and Guadalupe to explain the Church’s teachings about Mary as the Mother of God, the Immaculate Conception and the dogma of the Assumption. Father Artur, will present this exciting course on Sunday afternoon from 3 to 4:30PM at Saint Francis of Assisi Church, 1048 W. Ventura Street. Everyone is Welcome to attend !
