by Bishop Robert Barron . June 25, 2017 .
As we return to the regular cycle of readings in Ordinary Time, we meet with a bracing spiritual teaching from the Lord Jesus.

by Bishop Robert Barron . January 12, 2017 .
The much-anticipated “Silence”, based upon the Shusaku Endo novel of the same name, is a worthy addition to the Scorsese oeuvre.

However, the "three cheers" most inspired by the film are not for the Hollywood greats but for the martyrs, crucified by the seaside.
