A Great Light in the Darkness

by Bishop Robert Barron . January 22, 2017 .

This week's reading from the prophet Isaiah emphasizes God's tendency to bring the best from the worst situations, light from the darkness.

by Bishop Robert Barron . August 28, 2016 .

This week's readings focus on the importance of humility. Humility is the foundation for the whole of spirituality. In order to truly pursue truth and goodness, it is necessary to let go of the ego and realize that everything we have and are is a gift from God.
