Fr. Barron on “The Hobbit”

The Hobbit

In his latest video, Fr. Barron unveils the Catholic symbolism within The Hobbit:

“I’m sure by now everyone knows that J.R.R. Tolkien, the author of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings, was a Catholic—and a very devout Catholic. Catholic themes are pretty apparent in his literature and once you get that, you begin to see them everywhere. I’ll just highlight a couple examples from The Hobbit.”
