Stop Being a Chicken: Bishop Barron on the Realities of Baptism

by Bishop Robert Barron . September 25, 2020 .

Friends, the sacrament of Baptism is objective: the visible sign of invisible incorporation into the Mystical Body of Jesus.

Bishop Barron on Why Being Good Is Not Enough

by Bishop Robert Barron . August 27, 2020 .

No indication whatsoever is given in Scripture that the moral prescriptions are somehow more important than the liturgical prescriptions. Being a good person is not enough—it’s crucially important to be aligned to God in his divine splendor through ritual and ceremony. My concern is, as our churches begin to open,…

Bishop Barron on Canceling Padre Serra

by Bishop Robert Barron . July 22, 2020 .

The entire effort to erase the memory of St. Junípero Serra is from a historical standpoint ridiculous and from a moral standpoint more than a little frightening. When we see mobs of people tearing down and desecrating statues of a great Catholic saint, how can we not see the ugly…

Bishop Barron on God, Equality, and the Founding of America
