Works of Mercy
Wheat, Seed, and Leaven
by Bishop Robert Barron . July 23, 2017 .
The Gospel for this Sunday is taken from the 13th Chapter of the Gospel of Matthew and it features three marvelous parables of Jesus. How rich and inexhaustible in meaning are these three parables! Take some time to read and contemplate these parables in light of your own suffering and faith as we seek the Kingdom of God.
Bishop Barron on Evangelizing Through the Good
by Bishop Robert Barron . March 2, 2017 .
Revealing the truth of God through rational arguments and displaying the beauty of God through artwork are two powerful means of evangelization. A third path, however, comes in the form of the good. The radicality of the Christian life concretely lived causes people to take a second look and upon this witness they are drawn into the love of God.
Be Holy, Be Perfect, Be a Temple
by Bishop Robert Barron . February 19, 2017 .
Our readings for this weekend are, each one of them, magnificent. And each one speaks of holiness, letting the Divine Life enter into you so that you become set apart. To be holy is to love with a divine indifference, shining on the good and the bad alike. What a revolution this is! Think how different your life would be were you to love this way all the time, rather than measuring out your love based on merit. Dedicate your whole life to love and you will be truly holy, set apart, a sanctuary.
