In this second part of our series on the Church Fathers, Bishop Barron takes a look at some important Church Fathers from the pre-Nicene and Nicene periods, including Justin Martyr, Irenaeus, Origen, Athanasius, and Gregory of Nyssa. A listener asks how we can understand Purgatory and Heaven in relation to time.

I am going to have to watch this later. However, I made extensive use of the apostolic fathers in my own writing, and I found that they are definitely not Southern Baptists.

I love this series. Don't limit it to three. Come back to the Church Fathers often, maybe do one every other month or so. There is enough material for hundreds of episodes. I love the channel! :)

I keep praying for you so that your continuing successes do not lead you into arrogance and a fall. Deliver Robert Barron and everyone working with him, from the evil Spirit, O Lord. Be their protector and shield. Mother Mary, S. Joseph, all ye Evangelists, Fulton Sheen, Cardinal Newman, all in heaven, poor souls in purgatory, pray for everyone involved in this mission and in the movement. Lord, have mercy. St. Michael, keep watch over them. Amen.

You talking about catch reminded me of a nun in my primary school telling us of a game that Jesus may well have played when he was a child based on findings from that time. It was an improvised ball that was sort of palmed in a volleyball fashion between several players until one missed and it fell to the floor.

Starting @27:11, Bishop Barron observes that unreadable prose masks bad thought. That's universally true, I'd dare venture. In my field, I consider someone as knowledgeable if he can explain technical concepts using the least jargon.

Have been doing Bible Studies in my parish for over 10 years. I am now being asked to start taking a look at the Early Church Fathers. Feels like a massive undertaking, but what little I've is truly breath-taking. Would love to see WOF do a series of videos on them.

Bishop Barron please go on the Joe Rogan Experience, I think Joe Rogan himself and his audience would find your knowledge of the fathers both interesting and apologetically powerful

Hello Bishop,
Thank you so much for your videos and if you happen to read this comment!
This is not directly related, but I have been debating with a Protestant friend of mine about Sola Fide. He cited the famous Ephesians 2:8-9 and John 3:16-18, among others. I responded with the many Biblical passages which support the Catholic view that people can accept or deny God's saving grace by engaging in certain acts. However, I still have difficulty trying to explain what John the Evangelist means when he says "Whoever does not believe stands condemned already because they have not believed in the name of God’s one and only Son." Could you give some context and perhaps describe a Church Father who addressed this issue of justification? Thank you!
