Bishop Barron on the Persecution of Christians
by Bishop Robert Barron . May 30, 2019 .
There were more Christian martyrs in the twentieth century than in all of the previous nineteen centuries combined. Hitler, Stalin, Mao, Pol Pot, and many of their lesser-known totalitarian colleagues put millions of Christians to death for their faith in that terrible hundred- year period. One of the saddest features of the still-young twenty-first century is that this awful trend is undoubtedly continuing. By far the most persecuted religious group in the world today are Christians, and they are dying by the thousands especially in the Middle East and in Africa.
Bishop Barron on Jordan Peterson and Sam Harris
by Bishop Robert Barron . January 31, 2019 .
Over the Christmas break, I spent a fair amount of time binge-watching Jordan Peterson videos. Of the many Peterson videos, the ones that intrigued me the most featured his dialogues with Sam Harris, one of the “four horsemen of the new atheism” and perhaps the most strident critic of religion on the scene today.

Our modern culture suggests a tension between spirituality and religion. But the Magi in today’s Gospel demonstrate that when spirituality is lifted up by revelation—when the Magi are told by the religious leaders where the Messiah is to be born—we find the object of our spiritual longing.
Spinoza, Secularism, and the Challenge of Evangelization
by Bishop Robert Barron . January 3, 2019 .
During this Christmas holiday, I’ve been reading Anthony Gottlieb’s breezy and enjoyable history of modern philosophy, entitled “The Dream of Enlightenment.” I found his chapter on Spinoza extremely clarifying and indeed useful as a foil for what I take to be a properly religious view of things. Answering him point by point is a good exercise for anyone who would aspire to evangelize the culture today.
Spinoza, secularismo y el reto de la evangelización
by Bishop Robert Barron . January 2, 2019 .
Durante el descanso navideño, he estado leyendo la vivaz y divertida historia de la filosofía moderna de Anthony Gottlieb, “El sueño de la Ilustración”. Encontré su capítulo sobre Spinoza extremadamente clarificador y útil como comparación para lo que yo creo es una visión propiamente religiosa de las cosas. Responderle punto por punto es un gran ejercicio para cualquiera que aspire a evangelizar la cultura hoy en día.
