Bubbles, Everything is Bubbles

Cycle COrdinary TimeWeek 18

by Bishop Robert BarronJuly 31, 2016


The readings for this weekend have a tremendous cohesiveness. They all speak to a truth about our world that is hard to take in, that has to be repeated to each generation afresh, a truth that many older people have an easier time understanding than young people: nothing in this world lasts.

Psalm - Psalms 90:3-17
Reading 2 - Colossians 3:1-11
