Planting the Law Within Us

by Bishop Robert Barron . March 18, 2018 .

Jeremiah 31:31 contains the great prophecy that the Lord will one day place his law within our hearts. In the Old Testament, God's law was written on stone and often appreciated as an imposition, a burden. But Jesus is the Law incarnate, the Torah made flesh. Therefore, when we eat his body and drink his blood, we take the law into our hearts, and thus we realize the prophecy of Jeremiah.

Una Defensa del Celibato Sacerdotal

by Bishop Robert Barron . March 13, 2018 .

Todo en el mundo—incluso el sexo, la familia y las relaciones del mundo—es bueno, pero no permanentemente. Pero aunque la verdad sobre la finitud del realidades del mundo puede ser proclamada con palabras, la gente solo creerá en ella cuando pueda verla.

This is why, the Church is convinced, God chooses certain people to be celibate: in order to witness to a transcendent form of love.

Last week, America magazine published a fascinating survey regarding the attitudes of women in the Church. They were kind enough to publish a few of my reactions to the study, but I would like, in this article, to offer a fuller response to their findings.

Every Word from the Mouth of God

by Bishop Robert Barron . June 18, 2017 .

This Sunday the Church celebrates the Solemnity of the Body and Blood of Christ, Corpus Christi in Latin. This feast displays the distinctiveness of Christian religion amongst all the other religions, philosophies, and world views. No other group of people is called upon to eat the flesh and drink the blood of the person they admire. Christianity is the strangest way precisely because we are given this distinct access into the Divine Life.
