Resurrection and the Love of This World

by Bishop Robert Barron . April 19, 2009 .

From the time of Marx, Feuerbach and Freud, we've heard the critique that religion is a wish-fulfilling fantasy, a game of "pie in the sky when you die." The readings for this second Sunday of Easter give the lie to this criticism, for they show how those who were convinced of Jesus' resurrection were also deeply commited to a more just society.

The Ten Commandments

by Bishop Robert Barron . March 15, 2009 .

Scott Hahn refers to these famous laws as 'our declaration of dependence.' They teach us how to center our lives radically around God and his demands. They signal our total dependence upon the Lord. How wonderful that we meditate on them in the midst of Lent.

The Three Tasks of the Church

by Bishop Robert Barron . October 26, 2008 .

Pope Benedict has said that the church has three basic jobs: to care for the poor, to evangelize, and to worship. These three are on clear display in our three readings for the weekend.

by Bishop Robert Barron . October 19, 2008 .

The Gospel for today raises the famously complex question of the relationship between "religion" and "politics."

We should certainly render to Caesar what is Caesar's, but we must never forget that even Caesar belongs to God.

Lessons from the Vineyard

by Bishop Robert Barron . October 5, 2008 .

In both the prophet Isaiah and the Gospel of Matthew, we find the image of the vineyard as a symbol of Israel. As Jesus develops this image, we see both the glory and the tragedy of Israel-as well as the promise that the church will emerge as the bearer of the God of Israel to the nations.
