This week, Bishop Barron answers questions from listeners all over the world. These include:

  • If animals have distinct personalities, then why does the Church teach they don’t have souls?
  • What is being conveyed by identifying Jesus as the New Adam and Mary as the New Eve?
  • Do you believe we have a predestined “purpose”?
  • What can we say about the love of God to someone who has lost an infant to disease, or a parent to suicide?
  • If evil is a privation of good (non-being), how can demons be pure non-being?
  • Why do some people say, after they die, they wish to see God “face to face”? What does this mean?
  • Does the Incarnation bring about the fulfillment of nature, or is Jesus’ divinity something supernaturally added to an already-complete human nature?
