Pope Benedict XVI

All Souls Day

by Bishop Robert Barron . November 2, 2008 .

Why do we speak of the "soul?" We do so because there is something in us that links us to the eternal. Though the body fades away, the core of the person does not.

by Bishop Robert Barron . January 6, 2008 .

One of the truths that is manifested on Epiphany (that's what the word "epiphania" means) is the compatibility of faith and reason, of religion and science. The Magi were scientists, astronomers interested in tracking and measuring the heavenly bodies. But they also saw in the orderliness of the universe evidence of God. Their search for Christ symbolizes the fact that all of science leads finally to God.

Jacob Neusner, Benedict XVI, and the Vocation of Israel

by Bishop Robert Barron . August 26, 2007 .

Trusting the Darkness

by Bishop Robert Barron . August 12, 2007 .

Authentic faith has nothing to do with credulity or intellectual naivte. It has everything to do with placing one's trust in the God whom we cannot, even in principle, know with clarity. It is the willingness to follow the promptings of God, even when we don't see where they might lead.
