Fun Stuff: Catholic bishop takes questions from the peanut gallery!

Brandon Vogt

This is pretty adorable stuff.

Brandon Vogt, who earns his living working with Word on Fire Ministries and had the occasion, during a recent family vacation, to meet up with that organization’s founder, Bishop Robert Barron. Barron graciously sat for a podcast interview with four of the five Vogt children, and took some pretty surprising questions from these young minds, including:

  • How can Mary be “Queen” and Jesus be “King” if she’s his mother?
  • How does it feel to be a bishop?
  • How to explain God to young children?
  • What is God’s favorite color?
  • How do we know God is real?

Barron seems like he is having a genuinely good time with the kids, and I must say, Vogt’s son Isaiah has a very impressive and self-possessed way of presenting, right down to the throat-clearing before he asks a question. This is a very cute, very fun ten minutes. You can listen in, here. Enjoy!
