Salir de la Sacristía: Una mirada a nuestras prioridades pastorales
by Bishop Robert Barron . July 16, 2018 .
Desde hace varios días, he estado con mi equipo de Word on Fire, filmando los episodios de Flannery O’Connor y Fulton Sheen para nuestra serie The Pivotal Players. Nuestro viaje nos ha llevado de Chicago a Nueva York a Washington DC, y finalmente a Savannah y Millidgeville. A cada paso del camino nos hemos encontrado con personas a las que les ha llegado el material de Word on Fire: homilías, podcasts, videos de Youtube y la serie CATOLICISMO. Muchos me han dicho que su contacto con Word on Fire empezó un proceso que les ha traído de vuelta a la Iglesia. Y no les digo esto para hacer propaganda de mi ministerio en los medios, sino como una ocasión para reflexionar acerca de lo que considero debe ser un cambio en la forma en la que la Iglesia piensa acerca de su labor más esencial.

The Question Behind the Question
by Bishop Robert Barron . June 19, 2018 .
On the afternoon of June 14, a rather spirited, fascinating, and unexpected debate broke out on the floor of the USCCB spring meeting about the use of videos rather than texts. I will confess that as this lively discussion unfolded, a smile spread across my face, for I have believed for some time that the issue of how we communicate is perhaps as important as what we communicate—that is, if we are interested in moving the conversation beyond a very narrow circle.

Bishop Barron at YouTube’s HQ
by Bishop Robert Barron . April 12, 2018 .
I recently had the pleasure of visiting the headquarters of both YouTube and Google, where I delivered a talk on “Religion and the Opening of the Mind.” In this brief video, I offer a few reflections on how important YouTube has been to Word on Fire in its mission of evangelization.
Religion and the Opening Up of the Mind (Google Talk)
by Bishop Robert Barron . March 20, 2018 .
Bishop Barron's talk at the Google headquarters (Googleplex) in Mountain View, CA on March 20, 2018. He addressed a room full of Google and YouTube employees on how religion doesn't shut down the questing intellect, but in fact opens up our minds, causing us to seek the fulfillment of our deepest longings. These yearnings won't be satisfied by wealth, pleasure, power, or honor, but only by the God who wired us to be satisfied in him.
