Catholicism on PBS?
While the Catholic Thing calls Fr. Robert Baron's new documentary, Catholicism, "a feast for eye and ear and soul," the video above is most moving when the Chicago priest stops talking and allows the images and music to tell us the real story of Catholicism. With that small caveat, feel free to watch the above extended trailer for the series. Catholics today need to see that the Apostolic mission to "go and make disciples of all nations" is being fulfilled. While it's not perfect, Catholicism may just be the best recent religious documentary to hit the airwaves in an increasingly anti-Catholic culture - and it may truly be the best if we casually hit the mute button and merely see Catholicism lived out across time and space.
Watch for Catholicism to hit PBS this fall.
