Conscience

The Silent Presence of God

by Bishop Robert Barron . August 13, 2017 .

Elijah is a contemplative who has the eyes to see and the ears to listen. God does not appear in the glory of the world. Rather, he appears in a silent way. Weed out of your heart all of those fears and desires that prevent you from discerning the silent presence of God.

Seek First the Kingdom of God

by Bishop Robert Barron . February 26, 2017 .

“Seek first the Kingdom of God and his righteousness, and the rest will be given to you.” Make God the center of your life, and you will be spiritually ordered in Christ's image. But if you make wealth and security your center, you will be empty. You make the choice: will God be your center?

The Mountain of the Lord

by Bishop Robert Barron . November 27, 2016 .

This week we enter into the great season of Advent. Our first reading from the prophet Isaiah describes how every nation streams towards God's holy mountain. As you enter the Advent season, think about this holy mountain. Is the mountain of the Lord higher than every other mountain for you? Do you stream toward it with your whole being?

A Warning Bell in the Night

by Bishop Robert Barron . September 18, 2016 .

Most of us spur into action when we believe that our financial state is in dire straits. Why don't we act in the same way in regards to our spiritual state? Today people need the same spiritual concern that people had in the past. They need to want to establish a relationship with God, that which is of paramount importance. So wake up, and place God at the center of your life!

Priest, Prophet, and King

by Bishop Robert Barron . January 11, 2015 .

All the baptized participate in Christ. Since Christ is the fulfillment of the priest, prophet, and king that means that all the baptized are those as well. Although this statement may seem odd since we do not naturally think of ourselves this way, we must become more conscious of what it means to be grafted onto Christ. Our baptism grafts us onto the Body of Christ, making us all share in His Person. If his Person is priest, prophet, and king, then so are we.

Solomon’s Prayer

by Bishop Robert Barron . July 27, 2014 .

God says to Solomon in our first reading, "Ask for anything, and I will give it to you." What would you say if you heard that invitation? Solomon asks for wisdom and not for wealth or power or victory. Find out why that answer is so pleasing to God.

The Great Yes and The Great No

by Bishop Robert Barron . August 4, 2013 .

Very often we find ourselves drawn towards extremes: puritanism or hedonism, idolizing the world or demonizing the world. The proper Catholic balance involves a balance—a yes and a no—to both extremes. We should enjoy the world we have been given while understanding that it is not as important as the God who gave it.
