Acknowledging an Abyss; Finding a Bridge

by Bishop Robert Barron . September 22, 2020 .

One of the most remarkable differences between the social protests of the 1960’s and those of today is that the former were done in concert with, and often under the explicit leadership of, religious people. One has only to think of the crucially important role played by the Rev. Dr.

You’re Meant to Be an Eagle, Not a Chicken: A Reflection on Baptism

by Bishop Robert Barron . September 8, 2020 .

When I was doing full-time parish ministry, one of my favorite activities was performing Baptisms. I put the word in the plural, for I hardly ever baptized one baby at a time, but usually ten or a dozen. Typically, the quite large group of family and friends would gather in…

Estás destinado a ser un águila, no una gallina: Una reflexión sobre el Bautismo

by Bishop Robert Barron . September 8, 2020 .

Cuando ejercía a tiempo completo el ministerio parroquial, una de mis actividades favoritas era hacer bautismos. Puse “bautismos” en plural, porque casi nunca bautizaba a un solo bebé a la vez, pero normalmente eran diez o una docena. Típicamente, el grupo bastante grande de familiares y amigos se reunía en…

I have just received word that, after voting to remove a large statue of St. Junípero Serra that stands in front of their City Hall, the government of Ventura, California (which is in my pastoral region) is now considering removing the image of Padre Serra from the county seal. This…

Martin Luther King and the Religious Motivation for Social Change

by Bishop Robert Barron . July 14, 2020 .

A principal reason why the civil rights movement of the 1950s and 1960s was so successful both morally and practically was that it was led largely by people with a strong religious sensibility. The most notable of these leaders was, of course, Martin Luther King. To appreciate the subtle play…

Martín Luther King y la motivación religiosa para el cambio social

by Bishop Robert Barron . July 14, 2020 .

Una de las principales razones por las que el movimiento de los derechos civiles de las décadas de 1950 y 1960 tuvo tanto éxito, tanto en el plano moral como en el práctico, fue que estuvo dirigido en gran medida por personas con una fuerte sensibilidad religiosa. El más notable…
