by Bishop Robert Barron . December 10, 2019 .

“The Crown” and the Primacy of Grace

by Bishop Robert Barron . December 3, 2019 .

Like, I daresay, most of the English-speaking world, these past couple of years I’ve been watching episodes of The Crown, the beautifully filmed, marvelously written program on the life and times of Queen Elizabeth II. The series deals with the psychological dynamics within the royal family as well as with…

The Primacy of Love

by Bishop Robert Barron . February 3, 2019 .

This week we hear from St. Paul’s brilliant meditation on love. Everything in religion and theology revolves around love. It is at the heart of everything. Nothing matters without love, because God is love. Putting love at the center is the best way to organize and prioritize our entire lives.

Would That Everyone Could Be a Prophet

by Bishop Robert Barron . September 30, 2018 .

Our first reading from the Book of Numbers and the Gospel reading from Mark both highlight a very interesting spiritual predicament, one that is presented numerous times throughout the Bible. It might be summed up as the inclination for members of the Church to subvert the mission of the Church because of their own ego-driven desires and preoccupations.
