Social Justice

Rich Man, Poor Man

by Bishop Robert Barron . September 25, 2016 .

Friends, I have spent the past 12 days in Rome for “baby Bishop school”, and just returned today. As such, I asked my Word on Fire team to reach into our archives for this week’s sermon. I’ll be working on new sermons, articles, and video commentaries in the days and weeks ahead. But in the meantime, I hope that this archived sermon will help you to understand and personally appropriate the Scriptures for this Sunday, which remind us that we cannot remain indifferent to the poor, whom the Lord has determined to be a privileged route of access to his life and presence.

Bishop Barron on Pope Francis and Catholic Social Teaching

by Bishop Robert Barron . July 20, 2015 .

In the wake of the publication of Pope Francis’s encyclical letter ''Laudato Si'', and of the Pope’s recent speeches in Latin America, many supporters of capitalism might be forgiven for thinking that His Holiness has something against them. But Pope Francis’s remarks, though strong, even a bit exaggerated, in the prophetic manner, are best understood in the framework of Catholic social teaching.
