What Kind of Person Will You Be?

by Bishop Robert Barron . September 27, 2020 .

Our first reading for this weekend is taken from the eighteenth chapter of the book of the prophet Ezekiel—one of the four major prophets, along with Isaiah, Jeremiah, and Daniel.

Correcting a Brother

by Bishop Robert Barron . September 6, 2020 .

The Gospel for today addresses an issue of tremendous practical importance—namely, whether and how we ought to engage in fraternal correction.

by Bishop Robert Barron . July 16, 2020 .

by Bishop Robert Barron . May 19, 2020 .

In preparation for my participation in a USCCB sponsored symposium for the fifth anniversary of Pope Francis’ encyclical letter Laudato Si, I reread the famous and controversial document with some care. Many of the themes that struck me five years ago stood out again, but on this reading I was…

Bishop Barron on Not Doing Evil That Good May Come

by Bishop Robert Barron . May 7, 2020 .

Even as we legitimately fight the great social evils of our time, we must remember Paul’s simple but trenchant principle: never do evil that good might come of it.

Why We Can’t Do Evil Even If Good May Come

by Bishop Robert Barron . May 5, 2020 .

There is a curious and intriguing passage in the third chapter of St. Paul’s letter to the Romans, which in the context of the missive seems almost tossed-off, but which has proven to be a cornerstone of Catholic moral theology for the past two thousand years. Responding to some of…
