What is Our Fundamental Problem?

by Bishop Robert Barron . March 3, 2014 .

Lent invites us to re-visit the foundational principles of the spiritual life, first recognizing where things went wrong.

Extreme Demand, Extreme Mercy

by Bishop Robert Barron . February 16, 2014 .

In this week's Gospel, Jesus intensifies the moral law and raises the bar higher than it ever had been. Christ's goal, and the Church's goal, is to make saints.

The Presentation of the Lord

by Bishop Robert Barron . February 2, 2014 .

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.
