Spoiler Alert

Bishop Barron on “Star Wars: The Last Jedi”

by Bishop Robert Barron . January 25, 2018 .

I fell sound asleep for about ten minutes during the most recent installment in the “Star Wars” franchise, “The Last Jedi.” This was not only because the narrative had wandered down a very tedious alleyway, but because “Star Wars” in general has lost its way. What began as a thrilling exploration of the “philosophia perennis” has devolved into a vehicle for the latest trendy ideology—and that is really a shame.

Bishop Barron on Contraception and Social Change

by Bishop Robert Barron . January 11, 2018 .

This coming July, we will mark the 50th anniversary of Pope Paul VI’s deeply controversial encyclical letter “Humanae vitae.” But I would like to draw particular attention to a remarkable passage in this encyclical, namely section 17, in which Paul VI plays the prophet and lays out, clearly and succinctly, what he foresees as consequences of turning away from the Church’s classic teaching on sex.

Bishop Barron on “Lady Bird”

by Bishop Robert Barron . December 28, 2017 .

Greta Gerwig’s new film, “Lady Bird,” has taken the critics by storm. Having seen the coming attractions, I knew it would be a quirky, offbeat comedy, but I had no idea that “Lady Bird” would be of considerable religious interest as well.

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.
