The Word on Fire

The Word On Fire – Fr. Robert Barron’s internet site offers many interesting insights into all things Catholic. Fr. Barron has a full library of homilies that he has prepared and we will be featuring a link here to his 15 minute reflections on this week’s readings.

This Sunday: “Recently, I read an interview with Bono, the lead singer of the group U2.

And that’s why I’m a Christian.”” My sermon for today is just an elaboration of Bono’s wonderful Christmas sermon.”
