The USCCB Meeting, Jordan Peterson, and the “Nones”

by Bishop Robert Barron . June 18, 2019 .

Last week, I gave a presentation at the USCCB Spring Meeting in Baltimore. My topic was what I identified as the second greatest crisis facing the Church today—namely, the massive attrition of our own people, especially the young. I trust that the first—around which most of our discussions that week revolved—is obvious to everyone. Judging from the extremely positive reaction of my brother bishops and the lively conversation that followed my presentation, the talk was well received. I was also delighted it apparently prompted a spirited conversation on social media.

La reunión de la Conferencia de los Obispos Católicos de los EE. UU., Jordan Peterson y los “no afiliados”

by Bishop Robert Barron . June 18, 2019 .

La semana pasada, di una presentación en la Reunión de Primavera de la Conferencia de los Obispos Católicos de los Estados Unidos en Baltimore. Mi tema fue lo que identifiqué como la segunda crisis más grande que enfrenta la Iglesia hoy, es decir, la deserción masiva de nuestra propia gente, especialmente de los jóvenes. Confío en que la primera crisis —en torno a la cual giraron la mayoría de nuestros debates de esa semana— es obvia para todos. A juzgar por la reacción extremadamente positiva de mis hermanos obispos y la animada conversación que siguió a mi presentación, la charla fue bien recibida. También me alegró mucho que, al parecer, ésta provocara una animada conversación en los medios de comunicación social.
