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.

Rather than retaliating for evil done to us, we are to offer no resistance, hand over our possessions, go the extra mile. Instead of hating our enemies, we are to love them. We are to pray for our persecutors…”
