Walking Truly and Completely with Him

by Bishop Robert Barron . June 30, 2019 .

In the Gospel for this Sunday, Jesus clarifies that all worldly goods find their value in relation to Him. If we believe Jesus is the only Son of God, we must place our grudges, personal desires, and even our most sacred worldly obligations aside in order to walk truly and completely with Him.

The USCCB Meeting, Jordan Peterson, and the “Nones”

by Bishop Robert Barron . June 18, 2019 .

Last week, I gave a presentation at the USCCB Spring Meeting in Baltimore. My topic was what I identified as the second greatest crisis facing the Church today—namely, the massive attrition of our own people, especially the young. I trust that the first—around which most of our discussions that week revolved—is obvious to everyone. Judging from the extremely positive reaction of my brother bishops and the lively conversation that followed my presentation, the talk was well received. I was also delighted it apparently prompted a spirited conversation on social media.

La reunión de la Conferencia de los Obispos Católicos de los EE. UU., Jordan Peterson y los “no afiliados”

by Bishop Robert Barron . June 18, 2019 .

La semana pasada, di una presentación en la Reunión de Primavera de la Conferencia de los Obispos Católicos de los Estados Unidos en Baltimore. Mi tema fue lo que identifiqué como la segunda crisis más grande que enfrenta la Iglesia hoy, es decir, la deserción masiva de nuestra propia gente, especialmente de los jóvenes. Confío en que la primera crisis —en torno a la cual giraron la mayoría de nuestros debates de esa semana— es obvia para todos. A juzgar por la reacción extremadamente positiva de mis hermanos obispos y la animada conversación que siguió a mi presentación, la charla fue bien recibida. También me alegró mucho que, al parecer, ésta provocara una animada conversación en los medios de comunicación social.

Begotten Not Made

by Bishop Robert Barron . June 16, 2019 .

Today the Church celebrates the Solemnity of the Most Holy Trinity. The Nicene Creed articulates the mystery of the Trinity with the wonderful phrase "begotten not made," meaning that the Son is not a creature but rather shares in the selfsame nature as the Father. The Holy Spirit is then the life-giving love breathed out between the Father and the Son.

Bishop Barron on Pope Francis, Tradition, and John Henry Newman

by Bishop Robert Barron . June 11, 2019 .

A recent informal statement from Pope Francis about tradition not being a “return to the ashes” during an in-flight press conference has gotten some attention. There are two poles to avoid here: a kind of liberalism that stresses a mindless openness to the culture, and a kind of “conservatism of the museum” that desperately clings to the past. The one that helps us to see through the dilemma is someone that will be canonized by Pope Francis in a few months—namely, John Henry Newman.
