About the Film

Holiness is heroism.

Christ’s invitation to priesthood is an invitation to a way of life that is athletic in its intensity and heroic in its form.

Discern the call.

In this award-winning short film, produced by Word on Fire Catholic Ministries in partnership with Spirit Juice Studios, Father Robert Barron and the seminarians of Mundelein Seminary present the demands and the joy of the priestly vocation.

In December 2014, “Heroic Priesthood” won the First Place Award of Excellence at the Best Shorts Competition, in the Christian category. In August 2015, the film won a 2015 Telly Award for Best Religious Segment.
