Which King? Whose Kingdom?

by Bishop Robert Barron . March 28, 2010 .

Today the Church proclaims the Passion of Christ. The story of the Lord's suffering and death haunted the minds of the first Christians. All the Gospels center around it and find their fulfillment in it. The special emphasis in this years account, taken from the Gospel of Luke, is Christ's struggle with the false kingdoms of the world.

Ekklesia

by Bishop Robert Barron . August 24, 2008 .

Incoming!

by Bishop Robert Barron . December 2, 2007 .

Advent is from the latin word adventus, which means coming or arrival. Some arrivals are positive; others are downright threatening. The Gospel for today paints a somewhat dark picture of the coming of the Son of Man, likening it to the flood of Noah. When Christ comes, we have to change, and that's often wrenching.

David and Jesus

by Bishop Robert Barron . November 25, 2007 .

Along with Moses and Abraham, David is the most important figure in the Old Testament. The first Christians read Jesus in light of these heroes of the Old Testament.

The Birth Pangs of the Messiah

by Bishop Robert Barron . November 18, 2007 .

Our readings for today are apocalyptic, which means that they describe the end of an old world and the beginning of a new one. The new world in question is the world of Christ's lordship. To enter into that spiritual space, we have to go through earthquake, famine, and war. But this is, finally good news!
