The Office of Family Life will showcase their component of the standardized seventh-grade religion program when they introduce the theology of the body curriculum on April 16 in South Bend and April 30 in Fort Wayne. The theology of the body curriculum will utilize Ascension Press’ “Theology of the Body for Teens” (middle school edition) program, “which contains a student text, parent guide and DVD series, as well as supplemental lesson plans developed by the junior high religion curriculum committee for our diocese,” Lisa Everett, the co-director of the Office of Family Life, described.
When we encounter the resurrection accounts in the New Testament, we face a challenge in putting all the pieces together in such a way that the sequence of events flows in logical order. This is due to the fact that no one Gospel presents all or even most of the information.
The British writer, actor, and comedian Stephen Fry is featured in a YouTube video rant against God which has gone viral. Is he right that evil and suffering disprove God? Is the world ultimately meaningless? Fr. Barron responds to these age old questions in this video.
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.
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.)

Very seldom is anyone or anything “alone.”
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.
The parable of the Wedding Banquet seems to bug people for some reason - but when you reflect on this passage it actually really helps us learn to read the Bible. In this video, Fr Robert Barron analyses this parable from Matthew's Gospel, and discusses what we can learn from this story.
The Social Justice Expo took place on Wednesday 5th November at the University of Notre Dame Australia's Broadway Sydney campus. An initiative of the Archdiocese's Justice and Peace Office, Faith in Action was a free event, aimed at introducing young people from across Sydney to Catholic agencies and organisations that work for justice, peace, ecology and development, and inviting them to make connections with those agencies carrying out the Church's social teaching in practical ways in Sydney, across the country and throughout the world.
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.
