Fr. BarronConversion | Fr. Robert Barron
Six stories of conversion from the Gospels. The common theme in each story is the turning of all one's attention and energy toward an ever deeper, personal relationship with Jesus Christ. In his characteristically energetic style, Fr. Barron explains how conversion is not so much a one-time event, but a life-long process. "Jesus Christ calls us in thousands of different ways to follow Him, as we strive on the path for spiritual excellence". This talk demonstrates how 6 ordinary people, just like you, were met by Jesus where they were and called to a better life through Him.
