Spoiler Alert

Bishop Barron on “John Wick: Chapter 3”

by Bishop Robert Barron . June 20, 2019 .

As I watched the third installment of the “John Wick” franchise, I thought of the nineteenth-century German philosopher Arthur Schopenhauer and his metaphor for life and death.

Bishop Barron on Pope Francis, Tradition, and John Henry Newman

by Bishop Robert Barron . June 11, 2019 .

A recent informal statement from Pope Francis about tradition not being a “return to the ashes” during an in-flight press conference has gotten some attention. There are two poles to avoid here: a kind of liberalism that stresses a mindless openness to the culture, and a kind of “conservatism of the museum” that desperately clings to the past. The one that helps us to see through the dilemma is someone that will be canonized by Pope Francis in a few months—namely, John Henry Newman.

Bishop Barron on the Persecution of Christians

by Bishop Robert Barron . May 30, 2019 .

There were more Christian martyrs in the twentieth century than in all of the previous nineteen centuries combined. Hitler, Stalin, Mao, Pol Pot, and many of their lesser-known totalitarian colleagues put millions of Christians to death for their faith in that terrible hundred- year period. One of the saddest features of the still-young twenty-first century is that this awful trend is undoubtedly continuing. By far the most persecuted religious group in the world today are Christians, and they are dying by the thousands especially in the Middle East and in Africa.

Bishop Barron on California’s Attack on Confession

by Bishop Robert Barron . May 22, 2019 .

SB 360, a piece of proposed legislation currently making its way through the California state senate, should alarm not only every Catholic in the country, but indeed the adepts of any religion. In California, as in almost every other state, clergy members (along with a variety of other professionals, including physicians, social workers, teachers, and therapists) are mandated reporters—which is to say, they are legally required to report any case of suspected child abuse or neglect to law enforcement. However, California clergy who come by this knowledge in the context of “penitential communication” are currently exempted from the requirement. SB 360 would remove the exemption.

Bishop Barron on Jordan Peterson and Sam Harris

by Bishop Robert Barron . January 31, 2019 .

Over the Christmas break, I spent a fair amount of time binge-watching Jordan Peterson videos. Of the many Peterson videos, the ones that intrigued me the most featured his dialogues with Sam Harris, one of the “four horsemen of the new atheism” and perhaps the most strident critic of religion on the scene today.

Spoiler Alert

Bishop Barron on “Bird Box”

by Bishop Robert Barron . January 24, 2019 .

The film “Bird Box,” based on a British novel of the same name, started streaming on Netflix around Christmas time. Starring Sandra Bullock and John Malkovich, it is a taut thriller that manages, perhaps despite itself, to shed considerable light on the parlous spiritual condition of contemporary culture.

Bishop Barron’s Discussion with Dave Rubin and Rabbi Wolpe

by Bishop Robert Barron . December 28, 2018 .

In case you missed it, here is my full conversation with Dave Rubin and Rabbi David Wolpe on “The Rubin Report.” The three of us had a fascinating conversation about how to deal with grief and suffering, what it means to be happy, and why God matters in a secular age.

Bishop Barron’s Interview with Ben Shapiro

by Bishop Robert Barron . December 20, 2018 .

In case you missed it on December 16, here is my full conversation with Ben Shapiro (from Daily Wire) for his “Sunday Special” show. We sat down for a thoughtful dialogue about God, culture, Judaism, and Christianity.

Why Remain Catholic? (With So Much Scandal)

by Bishop Robert Barron . September 21, 2018 .

Friends, in light of the recent scandals, I know many people are wondering whether they should remain in the Catholic Church. And I totally get that; the outrage is warranted. But in this time of crisis, I beg you not to flee, but to fight—not violently, with the weapons of the world, but with the weapons of the Spirit. We need you.
