We Just Don’t Get It

by Bishop Robert Barron . September 26, 2021 .

Friends, let us rejoice whenever the grace of God is on display. The point of the sacraments is so that God’s grace may flood the world, but the Lord can operate outside of our formal structures. He desires these gifts for us, but as the creator of them, he is…

Envy Will Destroy Us

by Bishop Robert Barron . September 19, 2021 .

Friends, when envy takes over our spiritual lives, we sow disorder and disintegration. The life of Jesus is about self-emptying love; it is in this gift of self that we are called to live. Mass Readings Reading 1 – Wisdom 2:12-20…

God Suffers for Us

by Bishop Robert Barron . September 12, 2021 .

Friends, with our readings from this weekend, we are on very holy ground because we’re dealing with the imagery, symbolism, and theology of the suffering servant. Yes, he is the one who will bring God’s salvation to all the world, but he will do it by bearing the…

Have You Stopped Listening to Jesus?

by Bishop Robert Barron . September 5, 2021 .

Friends, the more we revere something, the more we surround it with laws. The most important thing in our lives is to be in harmony with God, and so we follow his divine law. We must, with prudence and wisdom, distinguish between the commandments of God that structure us, and…

Time to Test Your Faith

by Bishop Robert Barron . August 22, 2021 .

Friends, today’s Gospel concludes John’s reflection on the Eucharist. At the end of this remarkable chapter, we are faced with a question that defines the Christian faith: Will you follow Christ? May we always answer as Peter does. Mass Readings Reading 1…

God’s Warrior Queen

by Bishop Robert Barron . August 15, 2021 .

Friends, today on this marvelous Solemnity of the Assumption of the Virgin, we celebrate Mary’s Assumption, body and soul, into heaven. But this does not mean that she has gone away; she is a warrior, involved in the struggle against evil from a new vantage point.

Where to Go When You Cannot Go On

by Bishop Robert Barron . August 8, 2021 .

Friends, we’ve all hit points in which we felt we could not go on spiritually, physically, or mentally. In the Gospel today, Christ declares himself the bread that has come down from heaven. If you want to live in the eternal realm, you must eat food that sustains forever.

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
