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.

Fr. Robert Barron comments on God and Morality
Last edited 15th January 2014

One of the most common objections that opponents of religion make is that there is no correlation between belief in God and morality. Indeed it is true that many atheists and agnostiocs live moral lives. However, as Fr. Robert Barron explains in this video, non-belief in God will over time result in a degradation of morality due to relativism.

Fr. Barron comments on The Nativity of Luke's Gospel
Last edited 25th May 2015

Christmas is a wonderful time to gather with family. But Christmas is much more than a sentimental season for comfort and celebration - if that is all we see in the Christmas season, then we miss the real power of Christmas! Look at the Gospel of Luke... Christmas is not a time to become lazy, it a call to action to embrace the Christian revolution, and to follow Christ.

Answering Those Who Say there is Only One Mediator
Last edited 11th December 2013

Have you ever had a Protestant challenge you as a Catholic, stating that there is one (sole) mediator between God and Man, Jesus, asking the saints to pray for us is useless, wrong and maybe even sinful. It is a very common objection!

Fr. Barron comments on Pope Francis and "The Joy of the Gospel"
Last edited 4th December 2013

Christianity is not a generic philosophy or a bland spirituality - it is the proclamation of something fresh, startling and urgent. The authors of the New Testament has this urgency in their writings, they are here to tell us about an 'emergency' - God has been raised from the dead. Pope Francis has this same evangelic urgency, as evident in his Apostolic Exhortation "Evangelii Gaudium" (The Joy of the Gospel) - making it an excellent read! Fr. Robert Barron unpacks some of the themes from Evangelii Gaudium in this video.
