A Prophet Like Moses

by Bishop Robert Barron . January 28, 2018 .

It is of particular importance this week that we read the first reading and the Gospel together, for the former sheds enormous light on the latter. In the first reading, Moses assures the people: "The Lord your God will raise up for you a prophet like myself." Moses received the word from God, but this new prophet would be an authority greater than Moses. He would speak with the words of God. And in the Gospel reading from Mark, this is precisely who Jesus is revealed to be: the highest prophet and the Word of God made flesh.

A Challenge to the Sons of Levi

by Bishop Robert Barron . November 5, 2017 .

Our readings for this weekend are tough for everyone, but especially for those who are in positions of leadership in the Church.

The Spirit on the March

by Bishop Robert Barron . May 21, 2017 .

This Easter season, the Church has asked us to meditate on the Acts of the Apostles. Today Jesus tells us to wait for the coming of the Spirit, which will descend upon them and empower them in their work. It is up to Christians today to continue the work of the apostles and spread the mission of Christ.
