The Wedding Banquet that Overflows with Wine

by Bishop Robert Barron . January 20, 2013 .

We begin Ordinary Time with the wedding at Cana, a rich, spiritual story with great implications for the Church.

Faith and the Law

by Bishop Robert Barron . July 1, 2012 .

The Book of Leviticus outlines laws, practices and directives of things, people and animals that are unclean and shouldn't be touched. But Jesus decisively touches the unclean, allows himself to be touched, and sets about a new course for those who follow him. The new laws ask followers to believe in him, trust in him, and become a part of his community.

Life Lived in the Spirit

by Bishop Robert Barron . June 3, 2012 .

The Holy Spirit thrives on the actions we take and decisions we make out of love, joy, peace, patience and more. These aren't abstract ideas that result in an internal satisfaction, they have concrete ramifications, rippling out into the world and affecting real, good change. When we choose light over darkness, participate in the sacraments, the Holy Spirit fill us.

Staying With the Lord

by Bishop Robert Barron . January 15, 2012 .

When we witness something beautiful, something important, we desire to share it with others, just as St. John did when he said to his disciples, "Behold the Lamb of God" - and just as those disciples did when they spread the good news of the Messiah. We quest to know God, to follow God, but more important is God's quest for us and our willingness to heed his call.

The Spirit of Power and of Truth

by Bishop Robert Barron . May 29, 2011 .

The Scriptures for this Sunday offer some glimpse of the Holy Spirit in advance of the great feast of Pentecost. The Holy Spirit is the heavenly grace that enlivens the Church in all aspects of its mission.

Coming to Spiritual Vision

by Bishop Robert Barron . April 3, 2011 .

The healing of a man blind from birth is an archetypal story of coming to spiritual vision. Sin prevents us from seeing clearly. Christ is the light and he wants us to walk in his light. But we resist. Fortunately, if we stop resisting, Christ will enable us, like Adam in Eden, to walk in easy fellowship with God.
