Fr. Barron’s lecture at the Catholic University of America’s 2012 Alumni Days. The talk provides historical context on the New Evangelization and a candid assessment of what it will take to effectively communicate the message of the Gospels in a post-modern world.
The “new atheists” have emerged as strident critics of religion. More often than not, though, Christians agree with them, for the God they deny is one that we would deny as well. Fr. Barron explores this curious situation with the help of St. Thomas Aquinas. He looks especially at Thomas’ treatment of the non-competitive relationship between God and the world.
Thank you @BishopBarron and the entire team working on Evangelization & Catechesis for @USCCB. Excellent discussion. As someone who works in evangelization at the grassroots, I was encouraged watching the livestream. You are all supported by many prayers.
I just read @BishopBarron’s chapter on Biblical Interpretation and Theology in his book “Exploring Catholic Theology” and it’s super impressive. Looking forward to reading chapter 13: “Announcing the Lordship of Jesus Christ”. This is ressourcement at its best!
@BishopBarron I finished your book 'Catholicism: A journey to the heart of the faith', yesterday. Thankyou, it was very enlightening and interesting. Especially for a new Catholic like myself on the RCIA journey at the moment.
@dylandrego @BishopBarron has done tremendous work revitalizing the Catholic faith. I see/hear it in bible studies & KOC meetings & TMIY groups & on retreats. He has engaged men & women to rediscover the great intellectual tradition of the Church and take their spiritual life more seriously.
