by Bishop Robert Barron . February 4, 2020 .

I write these words on the airplane taking me home from my first visit as a bishop ad limina apostolorum (to the threshold of the apostles). This is the pilgrimage, required by canon law of every bishop, to pray at the tombs of St. Peter and St. Paul and to…

Una oración en la tumba de San Pablo

by Bishop Robert Barron . February 4, 2020 .

Escribo estas palabras en el avión que me lleva a casa desde mi primera visita como obispo ad limina apostolorum (al umbral de los apóstoles). Esta es la peregrinación exigida a cada obispo por el derecho canónico, para rezar en las tumbas de San Pedro y San Pablo y para…
