Domesticating Jesus

Amazed and Afraid of Jesus

Are you amazed and afraid of Jesus? Have you, perhaps, domesticated him a bit too much? Do we fully grasp the significance of who He claims to be? Fr. Barron shares some excellent thoughts below in an exclusive video clip from his highly anticipated project: CATHOLICISM.

This clip is called “Amazed and Afraid: The Revelation of God Become Man” and was filmed in Israel and Rome on Fr. Barron’s first trip to the Holy Land for this project. Please check it out and share this post and video wherever you can! CATHOLICISM is going to be a powerful story of the Catholic faith. Let’s share it with as many people as possible. Let’s tell our story.

I’m honored to be working with Word On Fire to bring you some exclusive previews of this revolutionary series over the next year. The ten part production will be released Fall 2011. Between now and then, every month you’ll be able to find a new and exclusive preview from the series right here on So be sure to subscribe over on the right and follow along!

Matt – that stinking rocks. I am really looking forward to seeing it. We are working to get Fr. Barron here at A&M to speak to our students. Can’t wait to meet him. He is the new Fulton Sheen.

Matt, kudos for this Blogma exclusive! I make a point of recording Fr. Barron’s new 30-minute program on WGN and I’m also one of his YouTube subscribers. This is a nice piece for sharing with others on Facebook, etc. I find a lot through Fallible Blogma to share; thank you!

I hosted a screening of the first episode of “CATHOLICISM” a couple of months ago and the people at my parish left the screening with jaws-dropped. The visuals and the music were, of course, evocative, but Fr. Barron’s presentations were like his Youtube videos on steroids–they were that good.

To my delight, our pastor already mandated that we show the entire 10-part series once it comes out. This series is going to be one of the most explosive examples of New Evangelization that our generation has seen.

I can’t wait for the complete production to be released, especially after recently finishing “Jesus-Shock” by Peter Kreeft. One of our younger priests studied under Fr. Barron at St. Mary, so I hope we’ll be developing a study using the series in our parish (I’ll be encouraging it). Thanks for the previews Matt!

This is great. It is informative, interesting and entertaining which makes it a winning combination. I look forward to the whole series and pray that it touches a multitude of souls, lost and found! As far as domesticating Jesus, or being both amazed and afraid, I always pray: Forgive me, Lord, when I forget before whom I AM. God Bless you, Matt for all your sharing and work to spread His love.

Matt, you turned me on to Fr. Barron, and I am truly thankful for that. He is a blessing, but so are you. Your insights always give me much to think about, and you inform me of things I wouldn’t have noticed or considered in the same way without your input. Keep up the good work. You are noticed and appreciated.
