Bishop Barron Procession for Our Lady of Guadalupe

Friends, I'd like to share with you this video from our annual Virgen de Guadalupe procession and prayer service in Santa Barbara, California. As you watch and share this video, please also pray for the good people of my pastoral region as the fires continue to blaze across Ventura and Santa Barbara counties.

Bishop Barron on Black Elk and the Need for Catechists

by Bishop Robert Barron . December 7, 2017 .

At the November meeting of the United States bishops, I heard an impassioned case for the canonization of Nicholas Black Elk, a Lakota Indian medicine man who converted to Catholicism and eagerly took up the task of catechesis within his community. My prayer is that, if the cause of Black Elk moves forward, we might one day invoke him as a real icon for catechists in the Catholic Church.

Bishop Barron on Social Justice and Evangelization

by Bishop Robert Barron . November 30, 2017 .

The seventeenth century “slave of the slaves,” St. Peter Claver, dedicated his life to caring for the needs of slaves as they arrived in Cartagena from Africa. According to St. Peter Clever, social justice includes and prioritizes evangelization, a mission which flies in the face of Immanuel Kant's argument that religion is basically resolvable into ethics.

Bishop Barron on Reaching the iGens

by Bishop Robert Barron . November 16, 2017 .

Jean Twenge’s book “iGen” about the generation born between 1995 and 2012 is one of the most fascinating—and depressing—texts I’ve read in the past decade. Her chapter on religious attitudes and behaviors among iGen’ers unambiguously indicates what is leading this most unreligious generation in our history away from the churches.

Bishop Barron on the Mass

by Bishop Robert Barron . November 9, 2017 .

Why is the Mass so important? Why is it the “source and summit” of the Christian life? It is the most beautiful encounter between friends and it is an anticipation of the play that will be our permanent preoccupation in heaven.

Bishop Barron on St. John Paul II’s “Lessons in Hope”

by Bishop Robert Barron . November 2, 2017 .

George Weigel’s latest book, “Lessons in Hope: My Unexpected Life with St. John Paul II,” is the third panel in a great triptych he has composed in honor of the most consequential Catholic figure of the second half of the twentieth century.

Bishop Barron on Grace and Karma

by Bishop Robert Barron . October 26, 2017 .

There are two basic approaches to religion throughout the world. The first, found in much of the East, is a religion of karma, and the second, prominent in the Abrahamic religions of the West, is a religion of grace. We devotees of a religion of grace have to know that the gift is not for us alone; rather the generosity of God is meant to awaken a like generosity in us.

Spoiler Alert

Bishop Barron on “mother!”

by Bishop Robert Barron . October 19, 2017 .

Though it rather clearly reflects the anti-Scriptural prejudice of the cultural elite today, Darren Aronofsky's latest film “mother!” might actually serve to prompt a re-examination of the deeply ecological themes that run right through the Biblical narrative and the great theological tradition.
