Salvation

The Narrow Gate

by Bishop Robert Barron . August 26, 2019 .

The topic of the Gospel for today—the question of how many will be saved—stirs up such passionate feelings in people, and there is such enormous disagreement about it. Luke tells us that Jesus is making his way to Jerusalem and someone asks, “Lord, will only a few people be saved?”…

Boasting in the Cross

by Bishop Robert Barron . July 7, 2019 .

St. Paul tells us in our second reading that he boasts in the cross of Jesus. To any of his hearers in the first century this would have sounded like madness. Paul can boast in this shameful thing precisely because God has raised Jesus from death and thereby placed the world—the realm of hatred, violence, and division—under judgment. Now we must have the courage to leave the world and enter into the new creation, which is the Body of Christ.

The New Jerusalem

by Bishop Robert Barron . May 19, 2019 .

The second reading for this Sunday, taken from the twenty-first chapter of the Book of Revelation, completes the Biblical story. The Bible tells us that the world will be transformed into a new heaven and a new earth through the One who "makes all things new."

Pain Is Not Metaphysically Basic

by Bishop Robert Barron . April 18, 2019 .

I write these words on Holy Thursday, as the Christian world enters into the holiest and most spiritually intense time of the year. The long season of Lent has prepared us to delve once more into the mystery of the dying and rising of the Lord Jesus. As I have been contemplating the events of Holy Thursday, Good Friday, and Easter Sunday, my mind has turned, again and again, to the brute fact of pain.

El dolor no es metafísicamente básico

by Bishop Robert Barron . April 18, 2019 .

Escribo estas palabras el Jueves Santo, cuando el mundo cristiano entra en la época más santa y espiritualmente intensa del año. El largo tiempo de Cuaresma nos ha preparado para ahondar una vez más en el misterio de la muerte y resurrección del Señor Jesús. Mientras contemplaba los acontecimientos del Jueves Santo, el Viernes Santo y el Domingo de Pascua, mi mente se ha vuelto, una y otra vez, hacia el hecho brutal del dolor.

Three Easter Lessons

by Bishop Robert Barron . April 21, 2019 .

The resurrection of Jesus from the dead is the foundation of the entire Christian faith. If Jesus didn’t rise from the dead, we should all go home and forget about it. As St. Paul himself puts it: “If Jesus is not raised from the dead, our preaching is in vain and we are the most pitiable of men.” But Jesus was, in fact, raised from the dead. And his resurrection shows that Christ can gather back to the Father everyone whom he has embraced through his suffering love.

Bishop Barron’s Interview with Ben Shapiro

In case you missed it on December 16, here is my full conversation with Ben Shapiro (from Daily Wire) for his “Sunday Special” show. We sat down for a thoughtful dialogue about God, culture, Judaism, and Christianity.
