by Bishop Robert Barron . June 19, 2016 .

by Bishop Robert Barron . March 3, 2016 .

How much of human history has been dominated by revenge which produces an endless cycle of violence? Alejandro Iñárritu’s new film, “The Revenant,” carries a crucially important message: if there is a God who provides a moral compass and presides over human affairs, then one can let go of vengeance and seek a higher justice.
