Fr. Barron on St. Thomas Aquinas, Feast Day 28 January
Last edited 27th January 2015

St Thomas Aquinas is such an important figure for our time. He saw, with utter clarity, that all truth comes from the One God, therefore there can never be conflict between the truths of science and the truth of faith. As we celebrate his feast day on 28 January, watch this video reflection on St Thomas Aquinas by Fr Robert Barron, where he demonstrates that there is not conflict between science and religion, challenging us to think more deeply about our understanding of the faith.

Faith is Not Alone, Scripture is Not Alone, Grace is Not Alone. We Ought Not Separate what God has Joined.
Last edited 28th January 2015

There are a lot of “solos” sung by our Protestant brethren: Sola Fide (saved by faith alone), Sola Scriptura (Scripture alone is the rule of faith), and sola gratia (grace alone). (See the Protestant logo above.) Generally, one ought to be suspicious and careful of claims that things work “alone.” It is our usual experience that many things work together in harmony, that things are interrelated. Very seldom is anyone or anything “alone.”

Mark's Gospel and the Victory of God
Last edited 24th August 2015

The beginning of St. Mark's Gospel contains, in a sense, the whole Gospel message. It expresses the good news of Christ the King, whose victory over death brings salvation to God's people. Everyone is invited to come under the reign of this newborn king.

Thomas Aquinas and the Argument from Motion
Last edited 30th October 2014

Atheists, Agnostics, and believers alike appeal to philosophy to support their claims on the existence or non-existence of God. However, Thomas Aquinas' "Argument from Motion" offers a proof that cannot be easily refuted, as it appeals to the the concept of an "actus purus," or the unmoved mover that we call God.
