Friends, as you may have heard, Pope Francis recently appointed me the ninth bishop of the Diocese of Winona-Rochester (Minnesota). I will be formally installed on July 29. On today's episode of “The Word on Fire Show,” Brandon Vogt and I discuss how I found out about the appointment, how the process works, how it will affect Word on Fire, and what I'm looking forward to most in my new diocese. A listener asks, what is it like to act in persona Christi from a physical and emotional perspective? NOTE: Do you like this podcast?

Welcome to Minnesota Bishop Barron. As a lifelong Minnesotan we are going to love having you.
I would love to come visit Minnesota some day for an event where Bishop Barron was involved. It's cool that he is in the Heartland of America
It will be interesting to see what Bishop Barron can acomplish within the next 4-5 years on that diocese.
Pope Francis is a Cleric driven by THE HOLY SPIRIT, that is why he is misunderstood like Jesus is misunderstood.
Amen! Amen! Amen! You know and trust the HOLY SPIRIT.
Minnesota is cancer destroying this country
Welcome to Minnesota Bishop Barron! I'm a long-time fan of Word on Fire! May God continue to bless you which in turn blesses all of us! My prayers are with and for you!
I believe you are the spiritual father for more than just the catholics in your new diocese
Sent to Minnesota to water down and destroy our faith and church. Go Biden🤮🤮
Bishop Barron, you brought me back to the great faith of my youth. Since watching your videos, I returned to Mass, restarted praying the rosary and more recently have signed up to receive your Liturgy of the Hours prayer books through Word on Fire, I can't wait for them to arrive. These experiences have helped me find my centre and I value my daily prayer time so much. Today I re-read The Strangest Way and whatever your own initial reaction to your move I know you will continue to follow the difficult third path according to Divine Providence. I will continue to pray for you and if you have time please pray for Irish Catholics like myself and help more of us to reclaim our faith and walk the good path with you. God Bless You. Thomas from Belfast.
Some of us sll prefer regarding you as Father Barron. Much love from Boston.
Hope the body builders don't follow you to Minnesota...
Hurry up folks, the "boat" of Bishop Barron just landed in the shore of Minnesota! Get in when you have the chance and experience his evangelical teachings and believe again to spread the word.
Congratulations Bishop Barron! Also, many thanks to you, Brandon and your team at WOF. In addition to my wonderful local RCIA leaders you have played a pivotal role in my conversion to Roman Catholicism. May God continue to bless all of your endeavors.
I heard about a priest from Illinois who was a college prof, auxiliary Bishop of a large diocese, bishop of Rochester, and was known for effectively using new technology to evangelize. Felton Sheen.
Congratulations on your demotion.
Do anxious to have you I’m my diocese 🥳❣️
Congratulations, Bishop Barron, on your new assignment as Bishop of Winona-Rochester Diocese! 👏🏼👍🏼I’ve been following you since you were a Rector at Mundelein Seminary, then I met you in person at St. Mary of the Annunciation Parish in Mundelein when you presided the Mass & gave a lecture there. I’m so happy for you for being appointed twice as Bishop by Pope Francis. This shows that Pope Francis has a lot of confidence in you. I also have several of your books & videos, as well as The Bible, Volume 1 & 2. I also subscribe to your Daily Readings & Reflection, Sunday Homily, & your YouTube page. I am your avid fan & we miss you in Illinois. Minnesota is very blessed to have you Bishop Barron! May God bless & guide you always. 🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼
We will miss you…
