Bishop Robert Barron is returning to Reddit for another round of Ask Me Anything (AMA) on Thursday, September 26, 2019 at 11:00am ET.
Last September, he made history as the first Catholic bishop to host a Reddit AMA in the history of the site.
Reddit users asked Bishop Barron about everything from atheism to deep dish pizza (no, really).
Bishop Barron discussed book recommendations, redemptive suffering, and the Trinity with thousands of Reddit users.
An incredibly popular thread, Bishop Barron’s AMA quickly became the third-most commented Reddit AMA of 2018 (behind Jordan Peterson and Bill Gates) with 12,500 comments.
The chance to share the truth, goodness, and beauty of Catholicism on Reddit lines up perfectly with the mission of Word on Fire, a global media ministry founded by the Auxiliary Bishop of the Archdiocese of Los Angeles.
“The mission of Word on Fire is to utilize the tools of new media to proclaim Christ to the culture and draw people into (or back to) the Catholic faith. A Reddit AMA is a perfect opportunity to do precisely that,” Word on Fire explained.
“Reddit’s audience also tends to be young, intellectually curious, and largely nonreligious. This is a one-of-a-kind chance to introduce countless ‘nones’ to Christ and his Church.”
Set your clocks for 11:00am ET and get ready to ask Bishop Barron, well, anything!
