Father Barron: If you’re going through hell, keep going

“Good feelings, bad feelings. Excitement, aridity. I’m in the garden; I’m in the desert. Okay, that’s the way it goes,” said author, speaker and theologian Father Robert Barron in a video about spiritual dryness. “But you’re not focused on that; you’re focused on God.”

In his #AskFrBarron video series, Father Robert Barron tackles the question, “What do you do when you’re going through hell?” The answer is rather simple: Keep going. Because, as Rodney Atkins says in the song, “you might get out before the devil even knows you're there.”

Watch the video to see what else Father Barron has to say and, while you’re at it, listen to the song.
