Bigger Barns or Treasure in Heaven?

by Bishop Robert Barron . August 4, 2019 .

All three of our readings for this weekend speak of a primordial spiritual truth—that is to say, the need to detach oneself from the goods of this world. This has nothing to do with hatred of this world or of matter or the flesh; all of that sort of dualism is repugnant to the Bible. It has to do with a “wearing lightly” of this world and its goods, even as those goods are acknowledged and celebrated.

Martha, Mary, and the Attitude of Discipleship

by Bishop Robert Barron . July 21, 2019 .

Although the little story of Martha and Mary has been interpreted throughout the centuries as a parable dealing with the “active” and “contemplative” approach to the spiritual life, it can be read as Christ's invitation to all people to partake in his inner circle of discipleship. Christ overturned the social conventions of his time by summoning all people to discipleship. Thus, we must remove all barriers to discipleship for all people.

Walking Truly and Completely with Him

by Bishop Robert Barron . June 30, 2019 .

In the Gospel for this Sunday, Jesus clarifies that all worldly goods find their value in relation to Him. If we believe Jesus is the only Son of God, we must place our grudges, personal desires, and even our most sacred worldly obligations aside in order to walk truly and completely with Him.

The New Jerusalem

by Bishop Robert Barron . May 19, 2019 .

The second reading for this Sunday, taken from the twenty-first chapter of the Book of Revelation, completes the Biblical story. The Bible tells us that the world will be transformed into a new heaven and a new earth through the One who "makes all things new."

Seeing Abortion

by Bishop Robert Barron . April 9, 2019 .

We stand at a pivotal point in the great moral debate over abortion in our country—not because new arguments have emerged, but rather because laws so breathtaking in their barbarism have been passed, and a film so visceral in its presentation of the reality of abortion has found a wide audience.

Viendo el aborto

by Bishop Robert Barron . April 9, 2019 .

Nos encontramos en un punto crucial del gran debate moral sobre el aborto en nuestro país, no porque hayan surgido nuevos argumentos, sino porque se han aprobado leyes tan impresionantes en su barbarie, y una película tan visceral en su presentación de la realidad del aborto ha encontrado una amplia audiencia.
