Three Comings of Christ Prepare us for Advent

by Bishop Robert Barron . December 2, 2021 .

Friends, many years ago, in the context of a high school religion class, a very wise Benedictine nun gave me a template for understanding Advent that I’ve never forgotten. It is simply that Advent calls to mind three “comings” of Christ: the first in history, the second now, and the…

How to Live a Meaningful Life

by Bishop Robert Barron . September 30, 2021 .

Friends, I had the great good fortune of sitting down for a conversation with Jordan Peterson, Jonathan Pageau, and John Vervaeke about the crisis of meaning, especially among young people. As a society, we’re losing a sense of and orientation toward objective value. We need great Catholic scholars who reverence…

The Truth about Junípero Serra

by Bishop Robert Barron . September 9, 2021 .

Friends, though California Assembly Bill 338 rightly calls for the contributions and sufferings of native peoples to be recognized, it also encodes into California law calumny against St. Junípero Serra, and evokes the dark history of anti-Catholicism in this country.

The Threat of Totalitarianism

by Bishop Robert Barron . September 9, 2021 .

by Bishop Robert Barron . September 2, 2021 .

Friends, I have no quarrel with a university chaplaincy reaching out to seekers and nonbelievers. But I do have a problem with the religious leadership at Harvard University electing someone who does not believe in God precisely as chaplain. If you don’t believe in God, then you’re not a chaplain.

Why I Hate John Lennon’s “Imagine”

by Bishop Robert Barron . July 29, 2021 .

Friends, the Olympics opening ceremonies in Tokyo featured one of the worst pop songs of all time: John Lennon’s “Imagine.” The lyrics—imagining there is no heaven, no religion, and no God—are an invitation into a very dangerous space.

Breaking Out of the Prison of Self-Invention

by Bishop Robert Barron . July 8, 2021 .

Friends, we must break free of the prison of our own subjectivity, from which we have little choice but to hurl invective at one another. We have to get beyond the valorization of our own feelings and ideas and enter into a journey of exploration together. But this requires that…
