Holiness is heroism. Christ’s invitation to priesthood is an invitation to a way of life that is athletic in its intensity and heroic in its form. Discern the call. In this short film, produced by Word on Fire Catholic Ministries in partnership with Spirit Juice Studios, Father Robert Barron and the seminarians of Mundelein Seminary present the demands and the joy of the priestly vocation.
The Rome Experience
The Rome Experience is a cultural and spiritual pilgrimage for diocesan seminarians. Founded in 2007 at the request and under the direction of the Bishops Advisory Board, the Rome Experience provides seminarians preparing for the diocesan priesthood the opportunity to contemplate and nurture their divine call to the priesthood and to holiness as they pray and study in the heart of the Catholic Church, beside the Chair of St. Peter, and at the tombs of the saints and martyrs.
