Accompaniment

Why Accompaniment Involves Apologetics

by Bishop Robert Barron . July 31, 2018 .

I recently granted an interview to the National Catholic Reporter concerning the upcoming Synod on Young People, the Faith, and Vocational Discernment, to which I was elected a delegate. In the course of the conversation, I stated that I would bring the issue of apologetics before the Synod, since so many young people have questions about, and objections to, the faith. But when the interview appeared, the author expressed her puzzlement that I would mention apologetics, though it is clear that the working document calls for “accompaniment” of young people. It seems many think doing apologetics and accompaniment are mutually exclusive. To my mind, they’re mutually implicative.

Por Qué Acompañar Implica Apologética

by Bishop Robert Barron . July 30, 2018 .

Recientemente concedí una entrevista al National Catholic Reporter acerca del Sínodo sobre los jóvenes, la fe y el discernimiento vocacional que se avecina, y del cual he sido elegido delegado. A lo largo de la conversación, afirmé que sacaré el tema de la apologética ante el Sínodo, pues muchos jóvenes tienen preguntas y objeciones sobre la fe. Pero cuando la entrevista apareció, el autor se mostraba asombrado de que yo mencionara el tema de la apologética, a pesar de que el documento preparatorio del Sínodo hiciera una llamada clara al “acompañamiento” de la gente joven. Al parecer muchos piensan que acompañar y hacer apologética son caminos mutuamente excluyentes. A mi modo de ver se implican mutuamente.
