Bishop Barron on Spending Time with His Spiritual Father

by Bishop Robert Barron . February 13, 2020 .

In this new video commentary, I reflect on my “ad limina” visit with Pope Francis on January 27. It would be impossible to summarize what turned out to be a three-hour conversation with the Holy Father, but there were three dominant themes that emerged.

Plopping down to rest, I looked up at the picture right in front of me, which was Tintoretto’s depiction of Christ at the Sea of Galilee. The drama at the center of the composition is the Apostles’ boat, buffeted by choppy waves, and St. Peter taking a gingerly, tentative step onto the bounding main at the invitation of the Lord who beckons to him. My seated posture conduced toward contemplation, and I spent a good deal of time with this painting, first admiring the obvious technical skill of the painter, especially in the rendering of the water, but eventually moving to a deeper perception of its spiritual theme, of particular resonance today.
