by Bishop Robert Barron . April 21, 2020 .

Last week, Andrew Cuomo, the governor of New York, made a rather interesting theological observation. Commenting on the progress that his state has made in fighting the coronavirus, and praising the concrete efforts of medical personnel and ordinary citizens, he said, “The number is down because we brought the number…

A Talk on the Hill

by Bishop Robert Barron . November 19, 2019 .

A couple of weeks ago, I had the distinct privilege of addressing an audience of Senators, Representatives, and Capitol Hill staffers in a beautiful room at the Library of Congress. This event was made possible by two Congressmen, Rep. Tom Suozzi of New York, a Democrat, and Rep. John…

Yes and No to Power

by Bishop Robert Barron . September 22, 2019 .

One Cheer for George Will’s “The Conservative Sensibility”

by Bishop Robert Barron . August 6, 2019 .

I have been following George Will’s thought for a long time. I’m old enough to remember when his column occupied the last page of Newsweek magazine every other week and when he sat in the chair of conservative thought on David Brinkley’s Sunday morning political talk show. I have long…

Un solo hurra por “The Conservative Sensibility”

by Bishop Robert Barron . August 6, 2019 .

Llevo un largo tiempo siguiendo el pensamiento de George Will. Soy lo suficientemente mayor para recordar cuando su columna ocupaba la última página del Newsweek cada dos semanas y cuando ocupaba la silla del pensamiento conservador en el show político de David Brinkley los domingos por la mañana. Llevo un buen…

Bishop Barron on California’s Attack on Confession

However, California clergy who come by this knowledge in the context of “penitential communication” are currently exempted from the requirement. SB 360 would remove the exemption.
