Pentecost and the Fires in Our Cities

by Bishop Robert Barron . May 31, 2020 .

It is in a way providential that the Feast of Pentecost arrives this year just as our country is going through a convulsive social crisis. For the Holy Spirit, whose coming we celebrate on Pentecost, is a power meant to transform the world, or in the language of Psalm 104,…

by Bishop Robert Barron . September 10, 2019 .

The Spirit and the Bride Say, “Come”

by Bishop Robert Barron . June 2, 2019 .

On this seventh and final Sunday of the Easter season, I want to bring to a close my meditation on the extraordinary book of Revelation. With the disclosure of the heavenly Jerusalem, the Biblical narrative effectively comes to a close—and that’s true. But what we find today, in the very…

The Ascension of Jesus

by Bishop Robert Barron . June 2, 2019 .
