QOTW: Father Barron

"See Fah Bob!" (See Father Bob!)

My sweet sister, aka RoRo, does amazing work for a Catholic nonprofit organization called Word on Fire, whose global aim is to draw people into or back to the Catholic faith.  The head of the organization is a brilliant priest by the name of Father Robert Barron.  In conjunction with his staff and a video production team, he recently released an incredible documentary series and study program called The Catholicism Project.  Via his website, he offers faith clips, sermons, responses to current media stories, blog posts and a host of other information!  Catholic or not, this organization is a light for all...doing the work of Christ with fervent humility and grace.

I have a certain 21 month old who adores Father Barron...ADORES him.  Receiving an iPad for Christmas (me, not Carter), all he has wanted to do is, as the quote says "See Fah Bob."  When he wakes up, when he sees his dad or me on the iPad, when he hears the Word on Fire music, when he sees another's all about Father Barron.  So, I found a little stuffed priest for him yesterday whose real name is Juan Pablo (Wee Believers).  Carter immediately thought it was Fah Bob.  So, Fah Bob has become a part of daily activities.  He ate a toaster strudel with Carter this morning, and he then held Carter's milk.  Finally, Carter patted him on the back, only to knock him over...Father, forgive him.

A morning in the life of a Catholic child... 

Have a great weekend!
