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.

The film “Bird Box,” based on a British novel of the same name, started streaming on Netflix around Christmas time.

Bishop Barron on Pope Francis and Virtue Ethics
by Bishop Robert Barron . June 21, 2018 .

While many have focused on chapter 8 of this exhortation, I was really struck by the Pope's comments on moral formation, communication technology, and sex education in the previous chapter.
