Scandal

The Call of Samuel

by Bishop Robert Barron . January 14, 2018 .

The story of the call of Samuel is illuminating for our time of corruption and cleansing. I argue that the sex abuse scandal in the church should be read through the lens of this narrative.

Bishop Barron on Kathy Griffin and the Vanishing of Argument

by Bishop Robert Barron . June 15, 2017 .

By now the whole world has heard about comedian Kathy Griffin’s appalling staged-photo of herself holding a mock-up of the bloody, severed head of Donald Trump. But I would like to situate what Griffin did in a wider context, for it is but a particularly brutal example of what is taking place throughout our society, especially on university campuses, namely, a deterioration of rational argument.

Bishop Barron on Fleming Rutledge’s “The Crucifixion”

by Bishop Robert Barron . July 14, 2016 .

Fleming Rutledge’s “The Crucifixion” is one of the most stimulating and thought-provoking books of theology that I have read in the past ten years. There is so much value in this text that I plan to dedicate a number of articles to analyzing it. In this initial interpretive foray, I focus on two themes that run through the entire book and that ought to shape any Christian’s understanding of the cross: the sheer strangeness of the crucifixion and the weight of sin.

by Bishop Robert Barron . July 1, 2016 .

There is, in many quarters, increasing concern about the hyper-charged political correctness that has gripped our college campuses. Might I suggest that it would help our public discourse immensely if all parties would return to the Thomistic method of debate rather than engaging in verbal violence or retreating to a "safe space" amidst controversial conversation.

The Storm at Sea

by Bishop Robert Barron . June 21, 2015 .

The story of Jesus calming the storm at sea is an archetypal description of the church down through the ages. We find ourselves in the midst of storms, but as long as Christ sails with us, we can find peace.
