Priesthood

Una Defensa del Celibato Sacerdotal

by Bishop Robert Barron . March 13, 2018 .

Todo en el mundo—incluso el sexo, la familia y las relaciones del mundo—es bueno, pero no permanentemente. Pero aunque la verdad sobre la finitud del realidades del mundo puede ser proclamada con palabras, la gente solo creerá en ella cuando pueda verla. Es por ello que la Iglesia está convencida de que Dios escoge a algunas personas para ser célibes: para ser testigos de una forma trascendente de amor.

A Case for Priestly Celibacy

by Bishop Robert Barron . March 13, 2018 .

Everything in this world—including sex, family, and worldly relationships—is good, but impermanently so. But while the non-ultimacy of worldly realities can and should be proclaimed through words, it will be believed only when people can see it. This is why, the Church is convinced, God chooses certain people to be celibate: in order to witness to a transcendent form of love.

by Bishop Robert Barron . January 14, 2018 .

A Challenge to the Sons of Levi

by Bishop Robert Barron . November 5, 2017 .

Our readings for this weekend are tough for everyone, but especially for those who are in positions of leadership in the Church. I’ve been a priest for 31 years (and now a bishop for going on three), and I will confess that the words we hear from the prophet Malachi and the Lord Jesus about the corrupt religious leadership of their time and place are deeply challenging and unnerving.
