Mission

Invasion of Grace, Confession of Sin, Acceptance of Mission

by Bishop Robert Barron . February 10, 2019 .

There is a wonderful parallel between our first reading and the Gospel this week. The first reading is taken from the sixth chapter of the book of the prophet Isaiah, and it has to do with the call of Isaiah; and the Gospel is from the fifth chapter of Luke, and it deals with the call of the first disciples of Jesus. Both stories, in remarkably similar ways, lay out the essential dynamics of the spiritual life.

Tolkien, Chesterton, and the Adventure of Mission

by Bishop Robert Barron . December 11, 2018 .

The writings of J.R.R. Tolkien and G.K. Chesterton are often read as nostalgic celebrations of a quiet domesticity that existed before the rise of modernity and capitalism. However, I’m convinced that to see things this way is almost entirely to miss the point. For the ultimate purpose of their work is not to celebrate domesticity but rather to challenge it.

Tolkien, Chesterton y la aventura de la misión

by Bishop Robert Barron . December 10, 2018 .

Los escritos de J.R.R. Tolkien y G.K. Chesterton se lee a menudo como celebraciones nostálgicas de una apacible domesticidad que existió antes del auge de la modernidad y el capitalismo. Sin embargo, estoy convencido de que ver las cosas así nos lleva a perder de vista lo más importante. Pues el último propósito de sus obras no es el de celebrar la domesticidad sino el de desafiarla.

The Challenge of John Chau

by Bishop Robert Barron . December 4, 2018 .

Perhaps you’ve heard the extraordinary story of John Chau, the young Christian missionary who tried to bring the Gospel to North Sentinel Island, one of the most remote and isolated communities in the world, and who, for his trouble, was killed before he even got past the beach. His endeavor has inspired a whole range of reactions—outrage, puzzlement, sympathy, deep admiration—and has stirred up in many people, both religious and secular, questions about the missionary nature of Christianity.

El desafío de John Chau

by Bishop Robert Barron . December 3, 2018 .

Tal vez hayas oído la extraordinaria historia de John Chau, el joven misionero cristiano que trató de llevar el Evangelio a la isla Sentinel del Norte, donde vive una de las más remotas y aisladas comunidades del mundo, y quien, por su esfuerzo, fue asesinado incluso antes de cruzar la playa. Su labor ha suscitado una gran variedad de reacciones—rabia, asombro, simpatía, profunda admiración—y ha excitado en muchas personas, religiosas o no, preguntas sobre la naturaleza misionera del cristianismo.
