Bishop Barron on Reaching the iGens

by Bishop Robert Barron . November 16, 2017 .

Jean Twenge’s book “iGen” about the generation born between 1995 and 2012 is one of the most fascinating—and depressing—texts I’ve read in the past decade.

by Bishop Robert Barron . June 9, 2016 .

The most recent issue of “Time Magazine” features a fascinating and deeply troubling article on the prevalence of pornography in our culture.

Until we see that the laws governing sexual behavior, which are often read as “taboos” and invitations to repression, are in fact the manner in which the relation between sex and love is maintained, we'll never find true love.
