The Catholic Faith is not about myths or legends, symbols or literary devices. It is an encounter with Jesus Christ. Throughout history, the call of Christ has sent people to the corners of the earth with a message of great joy; a message that has built civilizations, inspired cultures, and even sent some to prisons or their graves.

We have the same call: sharing the New Evangelization.

Bishop Barron continues the story of CATHOLICISM, exploring the Church’s mission and the challenges of contemporary culture. In the original CATHOLICISM series, Bishop Barron took us on a journey around the world and deep into the Faith. Now, experience this Faith in action in CATHOLICISM: The New Evangelization.

This study guide is a companion guide for the film series, created to enhance your understanding of Bishop Barron’s presentation on the journey to becoming a saint. The study guide is divided into six sections, corresponding to the sections of Bishop Barron's presentation.

Each section of the study guide provides a detailed commentary on the DVD and “Questions for Understanding" based on the DVD presentation, Scripture and the Catechism of the Catholic Church. The sections also include “Questions for Reflection" that help in connecting the material to your own life and experience.

For group study, you can present the program in six or seven sessions of 60-90 minutes. Each session should include DVD viewing and group discussion of the Study Guide questions. Participants should read the commentary in the study guide and prepare the questions before the small group discussion. This preparation can be accomplished either before or after they view the DVD.

SESSION LAYOUT: 

Lesson 1: Introduction

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

Lesson 2: New Ardor

New enthusiasm, new energy and renewal from Holy Spirit constitute “new ardor." Bishop  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 3: New Expressions—Part I
Lesson 4:  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. Bishop 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 5:   New Methods

Bishop 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. He 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 6: 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.

BISHOP BARRON ON THE NEW EVANGELIZATION

Turn Your Faith Into Action

CATHOLICISM  taught us what the Church believes and why. CATHOLICISM: The New Evangelization shows us how to put our faith into action with new ardor, new methods and new expressions.

Bishop Barron’s original CATHOLICISM series took us on a journey around the world and deep into the Faith. This new documentary takes another step on the journey, outlining the tenets of the New Evangelization and showcasing movements and individuals who have answered the call to spread the Good News in today’s increasingly secular culture.

 CATHOLICISM: The New Evangelization is accompanied by a study program for adult and mature teen faith formation, which was written by Brandon Vogt, author of “The Church and the New Media” and a well-known Catholic blogger and advocate of the Church’s evangelization efforts via the new media.

  • Catholic adults and mature teens
  • Parish and diocesan staff
  • Lay ministry formation
  • Enrichment for teachers and catechists
  • Diaconate training
