Episode 3 ‘That Which Nothing Greater can be Thought – The Ineffable Mystery of God’

We journey with Fr. Barron to the heights of Mount Sinai and to the mysterious Istanbul.  We walk the glittering streets of Paris and become captivated by the glories of the Sistine Chapel in Rome – all to provide a vision of the inexpressible majesty and mystery of God.

The episode will be followed by a short discussion of the episode and its content.
