Which King? Whose Kingdom?

by Bishop Robert Barron . March 28, 2010 .

Today the Church proclaims the Passion of Christ. The story of the Lord's suffering and death haunted the minds of the first Christians.

The Suffering Servant

by Bishop Robert Barron . October 18, 2009 .

This Sunday's readings highlight the idea of redemptive suffering. The revelation of Christ changes our disposition towards the difficulties of life, filling these experiences with the potential for goodness. In his Incarnation, Christ did not evade the often harsh realities of human experience, but he accepted them, knowing that he would be with us in all things. The challenge for us is that in the face of the inevitable challenges of life is this: will we accept hardship as an occasion to grow in holiness and deepen our relationship with the Lord.

In this regard, Christ invites, not only Peter, but all of us, into a new way of being in which negation of the ego and the practice of self denial enable us to grow in our capacity for love.
