Finding Lasting Happiness

by Bishop Robert Barron . August 1, 2021 .

Friends, the ensemble of this world that God has made is good, and we’re meant to enjoy it; however, we hunger for something that transcends this world. Christ is the only good that can satisfy us. Mass Readings Reading 1 –…

What You Need to Know about the Catholic Mass

by Bishop Robert Barron . July 25, 2021 .

Friends, the sixth chapter of John is one of the most profound reflections we have on the meaning of the Eucharist. Let us pay close attention to our Gospel today, which is John’s account of the miraculous multiplication of the loaves, to form a better appreciation of the miracle we…

How to Be a Good Leader

by Bishop Robert Barron . July 18, 2021 .

Friends, our readings today center around the familiar biblical theme of sheep and shepherding. Both human and divine, it is Jesus who has come to lead us, walking in front of his people, alongside us, and behind us as both the God of Israel and the righteous heir of David.

Proclaiming Christ in the Culture

by Bishop Robert Barron . July 11, 2021 .

Friends, Sunday’s first reading makes it clear that if you are baptized, you are called to bring God’s word to others. This week, I share five recommendations as you follow his calling as priest, prophet, and king. Mass Readings Reading 1 –…

You Are Called to Be a Prophet

by Bishop Robert Barron . July 4, 2021 .

Friends, all baptized Christians are summoned to announce the Word of God. In our Gospel today, we hear the call, like Ezekiel, to share the Good News with all whom we encounter, especially those who have heard but turned away from the faith.

by Bishop Robert Barron . June 27, 2021 .

Why Is Life So Full of Suffering?

by Bishop Robert Barron . June 20, 2021 .

Friends, the book of Job is one of the most profound and most challenging books in the entire Bible. In today’s reading, we see that God does not hand-wave away Job’s suffering. Rather, the Lord places profound hurt and heartache in an infinitely greater context—into his loving providence. We must…

The Last King Standing

by Bishop Robert Barron . June 13, 2021 .

Friends, in our Gospel today, Christ paints a picture of a growing mustard tree, under whose shade all people are invited to dwell. Jesus speaks here, using a parable, about the reign and rule of God. Even now, the kingdom of God—the kingdom that finally matters and endures—is spreading far…

The Lifeblood of God

by Bishop Robert Barron . June 6, 2021 .

Friends, for this feast of Corpus Christi, today’s readings run red, dripping in sacrificial symbolism. When we gather together for Mass, we are not calling to mind some disconnected historical incident. Rather, we spiritually and physically participate in the re-presentation of Christ’s Body, Blood, Soul, and Divinity.

by Bishop Robert Barron . May 30, 2021 .

Friends, Trinity Sunday serves as a wonderful opportunity to unpack the life-giving relationship between the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Every time we make the sign of the cross, we invoke the power of the Trinity, thereby linking ourselves to the love that God is.
