In a breakthrough agreement, public television executives in Chicago have committed to prime-time broadcasts and nationwide distribution of Fr. Robert Barron's new CATHOLICISM documentary series this fall.
A show broadcast on PBS that shows Catholics in a positive light, as something good?!? Whod a thunk it? This is major. Really when was the last time you saw Christianity let alone Catholicism shown, on public TV as anything but harmful or at best quaint.
As Father Barron said, "The Catholic story is being told, but being told by the wrong people in the wrong way. We need to tell our own story." And brothers and sisters he tells it well.
When I saw the trailer two words kept leaping in my head: "Holy Crap"
