How to become a saint

Our ultimate goal is to be a saint. It is our greatest calling and what is desired for us by our Creator.

Bishop Robert Barron paints a beautiful and mysterious image of what it takes to be a follower of Jesus Christ. He lays out three intriguing paths to holiness:

1. Finding the Center
2. Knowing You’re A Sinner
3. Realizing Your Life is Not About You

He also shares practical approaches to enhance the journey along these three paths. Untold Blessing and its companion book, The Strangest Way, are insightful guides for meditation as you walk in “The Way," either for personal reflection or for small group study and discussion.

Study Program

Study individually or in a Group

You can watch the Untold Blessing DVD and then probe more deeply into Bishop Barron’s message by using the companion Study Guide, which is divided into sections that correspond to each part of Bishop Barron's presentation. The Study Guide was written by Catholic author Mark P. Shea, under the direction and approval of Bishop Barron.

Each section provides “Questions for Understanding" based on the DVD presentation and references from Scripture and the Catechism of the Catholic Church, and “Questions for Reflection" that help you reflect on how the material is relevant to your own life and experience.

For group study, you can present the program in eight 90-minute sessions.  Each session includes DVD viewing and small group discussion of Study Guide questions.  Participants should prepare the questions on their own after viewing the DVD but before the small group discussion.

The Leader’s Kit provides essential resources for lay discussion leaders, including the DVD, lessons, facilitator guide, answer key, and the companion book by Bishop Barron, The Strangest Way. In addition, leaders can access free, downloadable promotional materials and other tools using the “Support Materials” tab above.
