“Wokeism” in France: The Chickens Coming Home to Roost

by Bishop Robert Barron . February 18, 2021 .

I will confess that one of the biggest laughs I’ve had in the last several months was occasioned by a recent article in The New York Times by Norimitsu Onishi. In this lengthy piece, the author tells us that the current political and cultural leadership in France, very much including…

Why We Need a Distribution of Power

by Bishop Robert Barron . January 5, 2021 .

A crucially important feature of Catholic social teaching, but one frequently underemphasized or misunderstood, is a clear animus against the concentration of power within a society. This perilous agglomeration can happen economically, politically, or culturally. By a basic and healthy instinct, Catholic social teaching wants power, as much as possible,…

“Culture Warrior” and the Fallacy of Misplaced Concreteness

by Bishop Robert Barron . December 29, 2020 .

One of the least illuminating descriptors that makes its way around the Catholic commentariat is “culture warrior.” The term is invariably used by someone on the left in order to excoriate a right-wing Catholic for his opposition to abortion-on-demand, gay marriage, restrictions on religious liberty, etc. This resistance, we are…

Doing Some Real Advent Spiritual Work

by Bishop Robert Barron . December 1, 2020 .

We will never be adequately prepared for the coming of the Savior unless and until we feel in our bones that there is something we need to be saved from. If we don’t require salvation, then Jesus devolves, very quickly, into one wise man among many, one more spiritual teacher…

Hacer un Verdadero Trabajo Espiritual de Adviento

by Bishop Robert Barron . December 1, 2020 .

Nunca estaremos adecuadamente preparados para la venida del Salvador, a menos —y hasta que— sintamos en nuestros huesos que hay algo de lo que necesitamos ser salvados. Si no requerimos salvación, entonces Jesús se convierte, muy rápidamente, en un hombre sabio entre muchos, un maestro espiritual más en una larga…

Pope Francis, “Fratelli Tutti,” and the Universal Destination of Goods

by Bishop Robert Barron . November 2, 2020 .
