Bishop Barron on “Doctor Strange”

by Bishop Robert Barron . December 1, 2016 .

Scott Derickson’s new film, “Doctor Strange”, has received rave reviews for its special-effects, its compelling story-telling, and the quality of its actors, but I would like to focus on the spirituality implicit in it.

This week's reading from the Gospel of Luke shows us that our encounter with Christ is an invasion of grace and that we must be ready to welcome that grace and go out into the depths, and ascend to the heights, at its calling.

The First of the Signs

by Bishop Robert Barron . January 17, 2016 .

The communion of humanity and divinity in Christ's divine person can be likened to a marriage. Sin effects a kind of divorce between God and humanity, a break up of the marriage of God and his people.
