Bishop Barron on the Resurrection of Jesus

by Bishop Robert Barron . April 14, 2016 .

The resurrection of Jesus from the dead is the be-all and the end-all of the Christian faith. If Jesus didn’t rise from the dead, all bishops, priests, and Christian ministers should go home and get honest jobs, and all the Christian faithful should leave their churches immediately. The Resurrection isn't just a subjective event or symbol. It's a stunning, disturbing fact that opens up the divine life to everyone.

Spoiler Alert

Bishop Baron on “Hail, Caesar!”

by Bishop Robert Barron . March 17, 2016 .

The new Coen brothers movie, Hail, Caesar! is very quirky, unpredictable, and strange. It focuses on the Hollywood glory days of the 1950s, both extolling and mocking them. But something deeper is going on. From the very first scene, of the crucified Jesus, the religious dimensions are unavoidable. The film begins and ends with the Crucifixion and the sacrament of confession, both signs of people coming to terms with the presence of God.

Bishop Barron on Blessed Teresa of Calcutta

by Bishop Robert Barron . February 18, 2016 .

Like so many others around the world, I was overjoyed to hear of the recent decision of the Vatican to canonize Mother Teresa. Mother’s life reveals so many aspects and profiles of holiness, but I would like to focus on three of them: love, prayer, and her light in the shadows.

Walking By Faith and Not By Sight

by Bishop Robert Barron . June 14, 2015 .

Sometimes God does things we can't understand. This is where our need to walk by faith and not by sight comes in play. We trust in God's purpose, and his purpose often manifests itself in the least likely of sources-the mustard seed, for example. A young man on a cross, dying alone and mocked, was the mustard seed out of which a global religion, one billion strong, grew. This is the story of so many other influential Christians, such as Francis of Assisi, Charles Lwanga and Mother Teresa. They could have been easily overlooked, forgotten, ignored, but instead they sprouted into among the most revered in our history. This is a lesson of not giving up. It's a lesson of walking by faith, and not by sight.

Fr. Barron on Hospitalland

by Bishop Robert Barron . June 5, 2015 .

I recently spent six days in the hospital. The hospital has its own unique rhythm, customs, and language, which provide an opportunity to purge our attachments and let God work out his purposes even through our suffering.
