Friends, the readings for this weekend are tough. Here is the principle behind them, one that is simple to state, but difficult to take in: in a world gone wrong, those who come to us speaking and embodying the truth are going to be opposed. In our first reading from Jeremiah and in Jesus’ harsh, challenging message in the Gospel, we encounter the disruptive, burning, cleansing quality of authentic religion.

when you face opposition in your own Church communities :[
Thank you once again Bishop Barron for explaining this Scripture passage more deeply and more clearly for me! And YES! It is tough readings!!! Fire can be seen as warm and cozy and fire can be seen as destructive. But rarely is fire seen as CLEANSING; destroying what is old, what is obstructing new life from flourishing!!! Very well said Bishop Barron!!!... And those who speak truth are considered trouble makers, more dangerous it seems, than those who speak lies! Our Lord Jesus declared Himself to be the Way, the TRUTH and the Life. So Jeremiah, supposedly a 'trouble maker' was placed down a muddy cistern! And our Lord Jesus supposedly so much worse; a dangerous threat to the religious establishment and culture was nailed to the cross!!! But Our Lord Jesus rose from the dead!!! And the FIRE that our Lord lit did not stop blazing!!! And is STILL BLAZING NOW!!! For more than 2000 years!!! I loved this Sunday Sermon!!! May the Lord keep blessing you Bishop Barron and may the Holy Spirit keep inspiring you!!!
The world is a better place because you preach in the public forum. Bravo Bishop Barron!!
I think my family has always had the fire for crazy Uncle Jesus...
Bishop Barron for Pope
As someone who has not been religious. How do I start or begin to let god in? How do I build something new?
Jesus said 'if anyone wants to be my follower, let him take up his Bible and read it daily.' Wait, what? He didn't say that..?
The biggest flaws when it comes to actually believing in Christianity is free will and hell. No human being would choose eternal torture...for example if I truly believed hell were real I would have chosen non-existence. So I don't really have free will because I exist and according to Christian beliefs I am definitely going to hell. Secondly forcing women to give birth isn't free will either. Maybe it was the woman's free will to choose to abort the fetus because they don't want it to grow up to become a sinner who when they die will burn in eternal torture!! The truth is that the the majority of every fetus born will grow up to burn in hell according to the bible...that is just basic demographics of our human population...the vast majority of humans are non-Christian. It seems hell was created because death wasn't a big enough incentive for the church to retain their flock or to gain new ones. And the Christian fight against abortion is just free will hypocrisy.
All Catholics that pray to mary or the dead or to their appointed saints or to angels will have a rather large fire lit under them!
Nothing Original about Christianity
-New Testament copied from Jewish Old Testament
-Bibles are copycats of previous bibles.
-Jesus was a Jew.. suspected evidence of his existence.
-Easter a pagan ritual
-25th dec church decided DOB of Jesus
to override winter solistce a pagan festival.
Christianity a WHITE man's fraud scheme to enslave nonwhite people.
Thank you Bishop. Just what I needed
Thank you for your excellent, inspiring, challengin homilies on You Tube and also for the unique, enriching publications you have promoted through Word on Fire. You remind me a great deal of Fulton Sheen in his use of media to preach the gospel.
Bishop Barron doesn’t mind speaking the truth and explaining the full content of the Gospel and it’s consequences. This is a very hard to understand quote of the bible. He brakes it in small pieces for us to help us assimilate it. Because of confusion, separation, lies, misunderstanding, etc. Jesus died on the cross.
You’ll get banned , Father. Persona non grata.
Can you preach on the First Hebrew Bible and what ,s it,s meaning . It seams that there talking about flying saucers and Elohims ( plurial ) also in the book of Enoch it seam to say the same thing . Now I,m just doing what Jesus to,d me to do . Look for tge truth and you will find it . He did,t say let the other tell you what the truth is , you find it .
There is a wrong conflation of positive and negative commandments, choices that we can and must make and things that are out of our control - social and economic justice
I’ve lost faith in Bishop Barron I’ve read some articles from church militant and I’m concerned that he is not of the faith
Never with you bishop Baron. You are complicated and not clear .big question.
Let Christ first light a fire in you Bishop I pray. John 3:16 says only by believing in Him you get eternal life and how can you preach its by one's conscience you are saved. Please take back your words in public your teaching is contrary to the Bible.
