  1. It's interesting that you didn't mention the meaning of the red Sanctuary lamp or the most important person in the chapel.

    You know, The source and Summit of the Catholic faith; The Eucharist, i.e. Jesus Christ, Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity, in the Tabernacle.

    You know, The Second Person in the Most Blessed Trinity. The God Man, that most Catholic Bishops and Pope Francis are denying the Catholic faithful from receiving in Holy Communion, during this worldwide crisis.

    So much for the Shepherds getting the smell of a sheep on them. I'm throwing Francis' words back on him.

    The clergy have barricaded themselves behind their palatial Bishop's homes or behind the walls of the Vatican.

    Have you Modernist clergy ever considered that this virus originated in China? The same China that disgraced Uncle Ted Mccarrick, signed an agreement with the communist government. The same communist government that has now destroyed over 40 Catholic churches and Marian shrines in China, Since that agreement has been signed. The Vatican has made a deal with the Devil.

    Have you considered why Italy was Severely hit with the Coronavirus? Could this be in retaliation for Francis'idolatry last October? You know, the second commandment not to have any other gods before me.

    Don't be ignorant, Francis enthroned that demonic Pagan Idol, within the Vatican Gardens, within the walls of St. Peter's Basilica and a Santa Maria, outside the walls of the Vatican. God will not be mocked.

    Francis probably rationalize his sinful Behavior with his own Abu Dhabi statement, which states God Wills religious diversity.

    Francis has gone against Divine Revelation. Christ mandated to baptize All Nations and preach the gospel to the ends of the Earth.

    Even Bishop Barron said Jesus is the preferred way when confronted by Mr. Ben Shapiro, a Jew, by asking Barron if he was going to go to heaven. Bishop Barron is another modernist who didn't give a direct answer When he told Shapiro that Jesus is the preferred way.

    Jesus Christ is the only way, not the preferred way. If there was another way to heaven, the Eternal Father would not have allowed HIS Son to suffer and die on the cross as HE did. Do not diminish Christ's suffering, Bishop Robert Barron.

    The Modernism is a heresy condemned by Pope Saint Pius X. Modernism has infiltrated the Catholic Church. Many priests are lost and have denied the supernatural. Many of the clergy do not believe in the Real PRESENCE of Jesus Christ in the Eucharist. If they did, they wouldn't sin against HIM with all the Innovations and the liturgical abuses within the Novus Ordo liturgy.

    Our Lady of La Salette warned us that Rome would lose the faith and become the seat of the Antichrist. Our Lady of Akita warned us that apostasy would begin at the top. We are seeing this under the Francis pontificate. The Blessed Virgin Mary is not a liar. However, the clergy and even Pope Francis has lied about his covering up sexual abuse and protecting his priest. Francis is even guilty lifting the restrictions off of Theodore Mccarrick. the homosexual predator. The Fatima secret was about the Demonic. Disorientation which has infiltrated the Vatican and the Catholic Church, as a whole. God is not pleased. Many Bishops are protecting these homosexual predators. Many are homosexuals themselves.

    Our Lady of Good Success stated 350 years ago, also predicted shortly after the 20th century ended, That the church would have two popes. One Pope would attempt to build a church contrary to Christ's teaching. This is what Pope Francis is attempting to do.

    Francis and his minions need to be more concerned about the souls entrusted in his/their care rather than plastic straws in the ocean.

    Francis is in the pocket of the New World Order. He couldn't answer the dubia Cardinals, but he meets with pro-abortionists, homosexuals and transsexuals. But Francis wouldn't give The dubia Cardinals a simple answer of yes or no. His footnote 351 in his flawedcdocument Amoris Laetitia, promotes sacrilege and allows Jesus Christ in the Eucharist to be abused. This goes against St. John Paul's Familiaris Consortio, which gave strict guidelines on who could receive the Holy Eucharist.
    Ambiguity is not the work of the Holy Spirit. Clear teaching indirect truth are Hallmarks of the Holy Spirit.

    We are living through the Fatima prophecy and other prophecies predicted by Our Lady. What is being fulfilled is article 675 and 677 in the Catholic catechism.

    The catechism States the church will walk the road to Calvary and suffer and die like Jesus Christ did. The misguided And even the elect will be deceived, During this great trial.

    What is interesting is that Sister Lucia's Memoirs that she did mention that Catholics would Find their churches shuttered. The Mass would be suppressed. And many would have to celebrate the Mass in private homes, Open Fields or in Barns. This seems to be happening right now.

    If any person who removes this post, which Is taken from approved apparitions of the Blessed Virgin Mary, is evil. It's going against God's Divine Providence. And it's doing the work of the devil.

    Confirmed Catholics need to wake up. We need to defend our faith. Even Jesus Christ said He will spit out the lukewarm and indifferent.

    Please pray for Pope Francis in the misguided clergy who are operating the church today.

    Perhaps what is occurring today as a punishment from God and is a precursor to the full reign of the Antichrist, when he sits on the Throne of Peter.

    Just as Saint John the Baptist was a forerunner to Jesus Christ. It appears Francis is the Forerunner to the Antichrist.

    The Catholic laity need to wake up and pray for our priests. They are misguided. The shepherds are lost and the Sheep are scattered. Our Lady Queen of Peace and Queen of priests, pray for us protect the clergy from the evil one.

    Many of the clergy have given themselves over to Satan service. This was predicted by Pope Leo's vision. On October 13th 1884, 33 years before the miracle of the Sun. This is why Pope Leo XIII compose the Saint Michael prayer.

    Jesus Christ has given. Satan the time in the power to attempt to destroy Catholicism and a greater power to those who would give themselves over to Satan's service.

    The Catholic church has been infiltrated by Masons, luciferians, modernists, Communists and homosexuals. Pray for them.

    Bishop Robert Barron claims we have a reasonable hope that all men are saved. Yet, we have the words of the Blessed Virgin Mary saying that more people go to hell for sins of the flesh than any other reason.

    Bishop Robert Barron, pooh-poohed Our Lady's comment and said it was a private revelation.

    Has Bishop Robert Barron forgotten that most of the liturgical Feast days, regarding our lady were because of private Revelations?

    Get a backbone Bishop Robert Barron. Teach the whole truth unequivocally.

  2. I’m in the Archdiocese of Philadelphia and it’s a total disgrace that public mass has been canceled. We’re denied the sacraments because 85/330,000,000 people died. “Oh ye of little faith.”

  3. I went to confession yesterday. Father asked me to pray especially that this virus will lift and that Mass can be celebrated in public very soon. In the meantime, I can't thank you enough for streaming the Mass. This Sunday will be the first in a LONG time that I have missed Mass.

  4. This is a lovely place. I love all the relics. I am sad that we all l can't attend mass at the moment, but on You tube, masses are broadcast for us all to participate in. God will get us through this very tough uncertain time. I'm an sure of that. God bless you Father and all the faithful out across the world.

  5. Thank you! Wait… I think behind sleeping St. Joseph is one of my patron Saints… the great St. Damien of Molokai and then that must be, next to Father Damien, St. Marianne Cope, another great! Actually, I never met a Saint who is not great.

  6. I greatly enjoyed the tour. It is a fantastic way to know the servant of the Lord better. It is always nice to know someone more closely. I have listened to a few videos of Bishop Barron and I find them very interesting. The other day there was an introduction of him before his address and I very happy to discover all he has done to evangelize and his strong online presence. Bishop Barron please promote actively the presence of more bishops, fathers and sisters online because that is where the flock is to be found. Too often too many people are lost and feeling in the dark. Keep up your great work.

  7. Thank you Father for this tour..after watching the Mass yesterday, I said " I wish I could see a tour of the chapel" and then I find this today. God Bless you and Thank you for the Mass during this time!

  8. Thank you for the online Masses, but I just hope that when we participate in the Holy Mass, we put ourselves in the presence of the Holy Eucharist, no typing or encoding our responses so that we can FULLY participate in the Mass…. feel and know that Jesus is truly present… avoid destructions…. May the Lord bless us all.

  9. Please consider continuing daily mass after the coronavirus quarantine has lifted. They offer much comfort for those who are unable to attend daily mass in person. The intimate setting of this beautiful chapel is calming especially at this anxious time. God Bless you for all the work that goes into these. Pray, Hope, and don't Worry.

  10. Thank you for the virtual tour of Bishop Barton's chapel. I just went to mass this morning and was curious about Bishop Baron's chapel and especially the relics.
    Keep up the good work. All of Gods children need to pray together.

  11. Dear Fr. Grunow – Would you consider doing a segment on the relics specifically? We watched this with our children and they were very interested in exactly what ones Bishop Barron had. We saw St. Thomas Aquinas, St. Therese and St. Anthony of Padua. Who else is 'there', as it were? 🙂

  12. Thank you for the tour of the Chapel- It's beautiful
    Just a point however as you sign off – all the people of God are ministering to each other not just priests and religious!
    We are going to use Bishop Baron's homily today from today as we 'gather' virtually as an RCIA team with our candidates.
    Thanks again for your wonderful ministry at Word on Fire. Mary E Nono

  13. I really felt the presence of our Lord in this Holy Mass. Praise God in His Mighty Spirit. God bless to Bishop Barron and Word on Fire for these beautiful daily masses we can attend in our own homes.

  14. Thank you for the tour, Fr. Grunow.  What a lovely chapel!  God's blessings continue to be with you, the Bishop and the WOF staff for bringing the precious gift of the holy mass to us during this dark time.

  15. Everything I ask for Jesus gives me, I am just in AWE. The latest is I wanted to get a tour of your chapel and today I opened your website and there was a link to a 3+ minute tour. Now I know so what no biggie, but to me I have been watching your mass each day since the virus came and every day at mass I have been thinking I really NEED this—Thanks Jesus

  16. I sincerely hope and pray the daily televised Mass will continue once the quarantines are over. Bishop Barron and Fr. Steve’s homilies have been so nourishing. I’m sure many viewers feel the same. The Lord bless you all abundantly.

  17. Just found this video but have been watching most of out time in quarantine. Thanks to the entire Word on Fire Team. It gives me great joy every morning to hear and see THIS MASS daily. PS. Love the sleeping St Joseph. I just recently introduced to this statue through another Catholic media outlet.

  18. I want to share with you just what a blessing Word on Fire has been for my wife and I during this pandemic. We are in the Philippines. When the Enhanced Community Quarantine was implemented we found ourselves relying on other family members to go on certain days to buy a limited amount of groceries. Everyone's future suddenly became unclear. Even though we prayed, the fear would not go away. It was so bad that at night our bed shook because we were shaking. I'm retired military and I can safely say that I have never felt this kind of fear. Then one night by "accident " I found the Mass being celebrated by Bishop Barron. Since that night we have been present with you for each Mass. We began to feel the fear lift. Eventually our sleep returned. Some of the restrictions here have been lifted, life is returning to our community, Thank God. We are very grateful for Bishop Barron, Father Steve and the rest of the Word on Fire Staff.

  19. I never thought that I would enjoy attending daily mass this much.I can feel the spirit of God emanating from this broadcast every morning, and it only took such a very short time for me to want more and more everyday. Being disabled in bedridden, this Daily Mass has been a source of strength for me, and I so love how they are able to bring the gospel to life. I continue to pray for this ministry. Thank you.

  20. Thank you, Fr. Grunow, for the tour of the chapel that we've welcomed into our living room over the past few weeks. We could never imagine that we would have to attend mass from our home instead of at the church building. We appreciate the broadcasts.
