Video: Fr. Robert Barron Begins His Tale of Two Englishmen

Zoe Romanowsky - published on 01/13/15

Word on Fire’s new series, "Pivotal Players," highlights G. K. Chesterton and John Henry Cardinal Newman

After traveling through France and Italy, Fr. Robert Barron and his crew land in London to focus on the next two pivotal players for their series by the same name: G.K.Chesterton and John Henry Cardinal Newman. Fr. Barron speaks to us from the beautiful Slade School of Art, where G. K. Chesterton studied before discovering his love of writing. This video introduces us to the journey Word on Fire takes as the crew follows the significant life events of Chesterton and Newman through England.
