Anointing of the Sick
The Mystical Union of Christ and His Church
by Bishop Robert Barron . April 23, 2017 .
Jesus has come to bring us the divine life. Under his influence we become peaceful, unafraid, evangelizing, and forgiving. Through the Church, saints are made. This is because Christ is at the very center of the Church.
Evangelizing Out of the Encounter
by Bishop Robert Barron . February 15, 2015 .
The strange and unsettling Gospel account of the leper approaching Jesus is the manifestation of the deeply held notions of purity and impurity, notions that were uprooted by the God who entered into every part of our human condition to heal it and make it whole. In the Gospel and today, healing incites a mission. We, like the leper, must share how the encounter with Christ has changed our lives.
