CATHOLICISM: The New Evangelization

by Fr. Robert Barron

Word on Fire, DVD, four-discs
Released on September 10, 2013

DVD"CATHOLICISM" taught us what the Church believes and why. Now "CATHOLICISM: The New Evangelization" shows us how to put our Faith into action in today’s increasingly secular world.
 
You'll follow Fr. Barron around the world to Australia, England, and around the U.S. to examine the Church’s mission within the challenges of Western secular culture. This 90-minute film first tells us what the “New Evangelization” is, and then takes us on a fascinating tour to witness examples of new ardor, new expressions, and new methods of evangelization in action.
 
The DVD set also includes four hours of extra features, including two Fr. Barron speeches, as well as full interviews and insights on the New Evangelization with George Weigel, Ross Douthat, Brad Gregory, and Brandon Vogt.

 

CATHOLICISM: The New Evangelization Study Program

by Brandon Vogt

Word on Fire, spiral-bound paperback with tabs
Released on September 10, 2013

Study GuideThe study program includes a Participant's Study Guide and the Leader’s Guide. Both contain six lessons, questions, book recommendations, and a glossary, while the Leader's Guide also features a comprehensive answer key and tips on facilitating your group. Here are brief descriptions of each lesson in the study program:

Lesson One: "Introduction"
"What is the New Evangelization?", "Why is it worthwhile?", and "How does one do it?" Father Barron explains how the concept of a "new" evangelization began to take shape in the second Vatican Council.

Lesson Two: "New Ardor"
New enthusiasm, new energy and renewal from Holy Spirit constitute "new ardor." Fr. Barron takes us behind the scenes at World Youth Day and shows us other energetic examples of new ardor. The deepest source of Christian ardor is the reality of the resurrection, which fuels us to actively reach out in love to others with the “Good News.”

Lesson Three: "New Expressions—Part I
Lesson Four: "New Expressions—Part II

It’s not an expression of a different truth, but the same truth proclaimed and lived by Christ, that we have to express in a different cultural setting. Fr. Barron explains why secularism is on the rise: Confusion about who and what God is; Trying to fill human longing for God with the temporal and materials things of this world; and Relativism that purports that there is no objective truth.

Lesson Five: "New Methods"
Fr. Barron calls for “using the means and methods of our time to evangelize.” In today’s culture the Internet and social media plays a huge role. Fr. Barron encourages us all to use these new methods for the Lord. We all can give testimony to Christ by the methods we use to communicate and by how we live each day.

Lesson Six: "Faith in Action"
The New Evangelization Formation Program includes a sixth workshop-style session that guides participants in developing their own new evangelization action plan, either as individuals or as a Catholic group/parish. This section is based on selected clips from the interviews conducted for the series.

  • Alexis Marruffo

    I would love to win these items because I have heard such great things about all of it. :)

  • Pablo-Manuel Villarreal

    Our world, our societies, our companies, our friends and families long for love and truth, something that is the response to the longing of their hearts, and all too often alas do not know it is God's love.
    Therefore, New Evangelization i.e. the announcement of God's live as revealed by His Son Jesus-Christ Our Lord, is a matter of love of the neighbor as well as myself, fulfilling the commandment He gave us.
    I hope this tool can help me do better in making that concrete in my life, thus resembling every day a bit more what He dreamt of for me when He created me, and helping the people I come to meet discover this unique source of joy!

Each series was shown every Monday night for a full 10 weeks for those who could make it and it was really nice watching it on a projected big screen with other parishioners. Thank you for such an amazing gift, an amazing piece of work! We would so love to watch your New Evangelisation series!

      I meant new evangelization instead of re-evangelize.
