Bishop Barron on His Fifth Episcopal Anniversary

by Bishop Robert Barron . September 8, 2020 .

Friends, I took a few minutes today to reflect on my fifth anniversary as a bishop. I’m just so grateful to God for all the opportunities in the past few years, especially the tremendous honor of serving the good people of my Santa Barbara pastoral region in the Archdiocese of…

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.

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 King, Aquinas, and Our Nation’s Future

by Bishop Robert Barron . July 16, 2020 .

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

by Bishop Robert Barron . July 9, 2020 .

We are in a time of profound cultural convulsion. There are deep concerns about the nature of justice and politics. But what makes for a just social order? The fundamental understanding of “unalienable” and God-given human rights. When we take belief in God out of that equation, the foundation of…

Bishop Barron on Social Media and the Catholic Culture of Contempt

by Bishop Robert Barron . July 9, 2020 .

Friends, Catholics must stop tearing each other apart online. We should be outraged by those who send virulent comments to one another, preventing actually fruitful evangelical conversation. Calumny, the mean-spirited accusation of another person, is a violation of both charity and justice. Who could possibly blame a non-believer for thinking,…

Bishop Barron on Netflix’s “Unorthodox” and the Modern Myth of Origins

by Bishop Robert Barron . May 28, 2020 .

In my newest video commentary, I talk about “Unorthodox,” a mini-series that debuted on Netflix a few weeks ago. It’s an admittedly compelling and well-acted drama, but more than a little problematic.

Bishop Barron on Not Doing Evil That Good May Come

by Bishop Robert Barron . May 7, 2020 .

Even as we legitimately fight the great social evils of our time, we must remember Paul’s simple but trenchant principle: never do evil that good might come of it.
