As Catholic Church faces precarious cultural time, Bishop Robert Barron of Minnesota models thoughtful faith

The Catholic Church is in a precarious cultural moment in history as it balances the need to stay true to its teachings but also to live out its mission to be a welcoming church, as Pope Francis has emphasized.

There’s hardly a more reasonable voice out there to aid in the venture than Bishop Robert Barron, bishop of the Diocese of Winona-Rochester, Minnesota. 

Beyond his clerical position, Barron is the popular priest behind Word On Fire, a global Catholic media ministry. 

And he prefers “love or compassion or charity language to ‘welcoming’ — because ‘welcoming’ is too vague.”  

The Catholic Church is not about being vague — but about preaching the truth in love.
