Why is it More Rational to Believe the Universe Created Itself than to Believe God Created the Universe?
Last edited 17th June 2014

Radical atheists love to ridicule believers. They mock our “talking snake” in Genesis but really show their own lack of sophistication in understanding the nature of allegory or symbol in human language. And why do they think is it more rational to believe the universe created itself than to believe God created the universe?

Last edited 29th April 2014

What are the big ideas that face the Catholic Church? How can young people engage with our modern Church? Where can we start when searching for the truth?

Last edited 26th March 2014

Seth McFarlane, who is a well known atheist, is the executive producer of a remake of "Cosmos". It is yet another series portraying religion as an enemy of science. As Fr.

Fr. Barron comments on Original Sin
Last edited 10th March 2014

The beginning of Lent is a time for a "spiritual spring clean", which sometimes means going back to the basics. So let's look at the story of creation, and the story of original sin. Why is this Scripture passage so important for Lent? Watch this reflection by Fr. Robert Barron for more.


God's Law is Not "An Abstract Set of Rules" - It's Personal!
Last edited 10th March 2014

There is a danger when we speak of God’s Law, to consider it as we might any secular law. For example, we may well consider secular law merely to be some sort of impersonal code written by some nameless legislators or bureaucrats. We have not met them, we do not know them, or necessarily love or trust them. In effect, they are an abstraction in our mind called “the government” or “the man” or just “they,” as in, “They don’t want you to park here” or “They’ll fine you for that.”

Fr. Barron comments on The Calling of the Disciples
Last edited 6th February 2014

Jesus said to Peter, "I will make you a fisher of men". What does this mean? We are ordered by an innate natural desire to seek truth - and we are called to share this truth with others, to "fish" people and guide them towards this truth. Fr. Barron comments on the calling of the disciples in this video.


Apologetics: Is Purgatory in the Bible?
Last edited 30th January 2014

We'll begin by making clear just what we mean by "Purgatory." The Catechism of the Catholic Church teaches: All who die in God’s grace, but still imperfectly purified, are indeed assured of their eternal salvation; but after death they undergo purification, so as to achieve the holiness necessary to enter the joy of heaven (1030).

Music as Theology: A Way to Evangelize
Last edited 19th January 2014

Some of the Protestant churches, along with Charismatic groups, have had success with attracting young people through their use of music to animate services. This is much more than a superficial matter, as Maeve Louise Heaney has pointed out.
