Frank Gehry and the Quest for Transcendence

by Bishop Robert Barron . March 5, 2019 .

I recently read an interview with Frank Gehry, probably the best-known architect in the world, conducted in advance of his ninetieth birthday. After ruminating on his long and productive career, the architect said that he still harbored a great desire: “I would like to design a church or a synagogue. A place that has transcendence.” But as he elaborated on the meaning of “transcendence,” Gehry revealed the limits of his quest.

Frank Gehry y la búsqueda de la trascendencia

by Bishop Robert Barron . March 5, 2019 .

  Aunque vivo en San Barbara, voy con frecuencia a Los Ángeles por reuniones y otros eventos. Cuando estoy en la ciudad, me gusta pasear por el centro. El edificio que más me gusta mirar durante estos paseos es el Teatro Disney, cuartel general de la filarmónica de Los Ángeles…

New York, Abortion, and a Short Route to Chaos

by Bishop Robert Barron . January 29, 2019 .

It was the celebration that was particularly galling. On the 46th anniversary of the Roe v. Wade decision, the governor of New York, Andrew Cuomo, signed into law a protocol that gives practically unrestricted access to abortion, permitting the killing of an unborn child up until the moment of delivery. As I watched film of Andrew Cuomo signing this repulsive bill into law, my mind drifted back to 1984 and an auditorium at the University of Notre Dame where Cuomo’s father, Mario—also Governor of New York at the time—delivered a famous address.

Nueva York, el aborto, y un atajo hacia el caos

by Bishop Robert Barron . January 27, 2019 .

Fue la celebración lo que dolió especialmente. En el 46° aniversario de la decisión de Roe vs. Wade, el gobernador de Nueva York, Andrew Cuomo, convirtió en ley un protocolo que da acceso prácticamente irrestricto al aborto, permitiendo el asesinato del no nacido hasta el momento del parto. Mientras veía una grabación de Andrew Como firmando esta repulsiva ley, mi mente fluía de vuelta a 1984 y a un auditorio en la Universidad de Notre Dame donde el padre de Cuomo, Mario—también gobernador de Nueva York por entonces—emitía un famoso discurso.

The Internet and Satan’s Game

by Bishop Robert Barron . January 22, 2019 .

By now the entire country has seen a video of a supposedly racist confrontation, in front of the Lincoln Memorial, between a grinning young high school student and a Native American elder, chanting and beating a drum. The immediate and ferocious judgment of the internet community was that the boy was effectively taunting and belittling the elder, but subsequent videos from wider angles as well as the young man’s own testimony have cast considerable doubt on this original assessment. My purpose in this article is not to adjudicate the situation, which remains, at best, ambiguous, even in regard to the basic facts. It is to comment, rather, on the morally outrageous and deeply troubling nature of the response to this occurrence, one that I would characterize as, quite literally, Satanic.

Internet y el juego de Satanás

by Bishop Robert Barron . January 21, 2019 .

A estas alturas todo el país ha visto el video de una supuesta confrontación racista en frente al Lincoln Memorial, entre un sonriente estudiante de secundaria y un anciano nativo-americano que canta y toca el tambor. El inmediato y feroz juicio de la comunidad de internet fue que el joven estaba efectivamente burlándose y humillando al anciano, pero subsiguientes videos desde diversos ángulos, así como el testimonio del propio joven, han arrojado dudas considerables sobre el juicio original. Mi propósito en este articulo no es el de zanjar la cuestión, que sigue siendo, en el mejor de los casos, ambigua, incluso si consideramos los hechos más básicos. Deseo más bien hacer un comentario acerca la moralmente indignante y profundamente preocupante naturaleza de la respuesta a los sucesos, una que yo caracterizaría, literalmente, como satánica.

“Bird Box” and Spiritual Warfare

by Bishop Robert Barron . January 17, 2019 .

The film “Bird Box,” based on a British novel of the same name, started streaming on Netflix around Christmas time. Starring Sandra Bullock and John Malkovich, it is a taut thriller that manages, perhaps despite itself, to shed considerable light on the parlous spiritual condition of contemporary culture.

“Bird Box” y el combate espiritual

by Bishop Robert Barron . January 16, 2019 .

“Bird Box”, la película basada en la novela británica del mismo nombre, empezó a transmitirse por Netflix alrededor de la Navidad. Protagonizada por Sandra Bullock y John Malkovich, es un tenso thriller que consigue, quizá a pesar de sí mismo, iluminar considerablemente la alarmante condición espiritual de la cultura contemporánea.

Talking to Some Young Jesuits About Social Justice and Evangelization

by Bishop Robert Barron . January 8, 2019 .

While I was in Chicago for the Christmas break, I had a wonderful meeting with around thirty young Jesuits. They were massively impressive people: smart, articulate, passionate about their work, and dedicated to the Gospel. Toward the end of our time together, one of the men posed a question that, he warned, would “put me on the spot”—and the discussion then became especially lively and illuminating.

Hablando con jóvenes jesuitas sobre justicia social y evangelización

by Bishop Robert Barron . January 7, 2019 .

Durante las vacaciones de Navidad en Chicago, tuve una maravillosa reunión con una treintena de jóvenes jesuitas. Eran personas impresionantes: inteligentes, locuaces, apasionados por su trabajo y dedicados al Evangelio. Cuando llegábamos al final de nuestro tiempo junto, uno de estos hombres me planteó una pregunta que, advirtió, me pondría “en aprietos”—y entonces la discusión se tornó muy vivida y clarificadora.
