    First Lady Melania Trump revealed Wednesday that her 14-year-old son with President Trump, Barron, contracted coronavirus but has since tested negative. Barron remained asymptomatic throughout the course of his positive diagnosis, the first lady said. The White House initially said the youngest Trump heir tested negative after both of his parents contracted the virus weeks ago, but subsequent tests revealed a positive diagnosis. More recently, Barron has tested negative, according to the first lady.

    How should Christians vote? Bishop Barron, Never-Trumpers muddy the waters Prominent faith leaders and 'conservative' voices are obscuring the choices Catholics and other people of faith face in the rapidly approaching presidential election. October 9, 2020 (LifeSiteNews) — Bishop Robert Barron has joined a small chorus of prominent faith leaders and “conservative” voices obscuring the clear choices Catholics and other people of faith face in the rapidly approaching presidential election. And while their chorus is indeed small — mostly high-profile “Never Trump” academics — they have large megaphones with which to spread their confused, off-key messages.     Barron published a murky,...

    SATURDAY OF THE TWENTY-FIFTH WEEK IN ORDINARY TIME LUKE 9:43B-45 Friends, today for the second time in Luke’s Gospel, Jesus foretells his imminent death. Jesus spoke frequently of his “hour,” the culmination of his life’s work, and this hour coincided with his cross. And in what is perhaps the most disturbing mystery of the New Testament, this macabre glorification through crucifixion, is not simply the result of evil human choices; it is also willed by the one whom Jesus called “Abba, Father.” Somehow, it is the deepest purpose of the Incarnation; somehow it is why he was sent. And therefore...

    [Catholic Caucus] ARCHBISHOP VIGANÒ: On Vatican II & Bishop Barron's Word on Fire August, 2020Your Excellency:Perhaps you’ll find this interesting. As you know, Bishop Robert Barron is certainly not the worst bishop in the US. I have benefited from some of his lectures in the past and do not wish to call into question his sincerity. That said, I find his recently-posted position on Vatican II, as laid out in some detail here, to be problematic on many levels. I have no idea whether or not the launching of this initiative ha anything to do with your own recent letters on the subject,...

    What Is the FUS About? STEUBENVILLE, Ohio (ChurchMilitant.com) - A trendy bishop with a dubious record of orthodoxy is delivering a commencement speech and receiving an honorary doctorate at a university once renowned for strict adherence to Catholic teaching, raising more questions about the university's faithfulness. Bishop Robert Barron, auxiliary bishop of Los Angeles, is celebrating the Aug. 14 Baccalaureate Mass, receiving an honorary doctorate of Catechetics and Evangelization and giving a commencement speech today at Franciscan University of Steubenville (FUS).

    FEAST OF THE TRANSFIGURATION OF THE LORD MATTHEW 17:1-9 Friends, today we celebrate the Feast of the Transfiguration. What does this event mean? Thomas Aquinas’ treatment in the Summa theologiae sums up much of the wisdom of the Church Fathers on this matter. Aquinas says that it was fitting for Christ to be manifested in his glory to his select Apostles, because those who walk an arduous path need a clear sense of the goal of their journey. The arduous path is this life, with all of its attendant sufferings, failures, disappointments, and injustices. Beset by all of this negativity,...

    In the Face of Worldwide Apostasy, Bishop Robert Barron Attacks Traditional Catholics When he is not busy denying Adam was a “literal figure,” claiming there is “reasonable hope” no souls are in Hell, and assuring Ben Shapiro that Christ is merely the “priveleged route” to salvation, it seems Bishop Robert Barron likes to spend his free time attacking Traditional Catholics.In an August 3 National “Catholic” Distorter piece, author Christopher White informs us that Barron hosted an “invite-only” Zoom meeting on July 29. Was this meeting to discuss Pope Francis’ troubling July 26 tweet that, on the memorial of Saints Joachim and Anne,...

    A California bishop challenged Catholics online to “cut it out” and better represent their Christian faith through their social media engagement. On Tuesday, Bishop Robert Barron, an auxiliary bishop of Los Angeles, issued a “pastoral cry of the heart” to encourage Catholics to stop tearing each other apart online and instead provide well structured and charitable arguments. “I understand that people are passionate, especially about religious matters, but when it comes to this commentary we always must keep truth and love in the forefront,” he said. Speaking of social media, Bishop Barron said that “I must admit the vitriol, negativity,...

    [Catholic Caucus] The Junipero Serra Skirmish The Church is losing it. The California Catholic Conference issued a brief statement last week decrying the toppling of Junipero Serra statues. But the statement did little to stiffen the spines of Catholic clerics. The statement sought to reason with the mob, noting that Junipero Serra devoted his life to the service of Indians and protected them from Spanish soldiers. At the bottom of this wobbliness is the loss of conviction about the Church’s mission. Church officials simply don’t believe in it anymore. “The historical truth is that Serra repeatedly pressed the Spanish authorities...

    Your Catholic Week in Review (Our Weapon Against Revolution Edition!) Your Catholic Week in Review (Our Weapon Against Revolution Edition!) A few weeks ago, I wrote about the Anti-Lent and the Anti-Pentecost that we observed this Spring, as COVID-19 prevented us from attending Mass and the fires of revolution welled up from below to bathe our country in the flames of revolution. Since then, another sign of the Anti-Church has emerged.  George Floyd’s body was taken from place to place in a golden coffin, like the relic of a saint, for public veneration before it was laid to rest.

    The Incredible Shrinking Bishop Barron I have never been more than an occasional viewer of Fr. Robert Barron’s Word on Fire chats. His recent televised interview with EWTN’s Catherine Szeltner put paid to whatever interest I had. Newly elevated to an auxiliary bishop in the sprawling L.A. diocese, now-Bp. Barron was in Baltimore for his initial appearance among the USCCB. Ms. Szeltner was on hand to ask how Catholics should respond to the slaughter in Paris. “How should they react?” she wondered, as if Catholics were dependent on guidance in their attitude toward carnage.This was hardly a spontaneous interview. Chairs...

    Why “What are the bishops doing about it?” is the wrong question A vandalized statue of St. Junipero Serra in San Francisco is seen June 19, 2020. Recently, the bishops of California made a statement regarding the attacks on the statues of St. Junipero Serra in San Francisco, Ventura, and Los Angeles. While acknowledging that there are legitimate concerns about racism both historical and contemporary, we insisted that the characterization of Serra as the moral equivalent of Hitler and the missions he founded as tantamount to death camps is simply unconscionable. I put a link to this statement on my...

    Melania Trump has blasted a comedian for making 'inappropriate and insensitive comments' about her son after he tweeted that he hopes 'Barron gets to spend today with whoever his dad is'. John Henson, who brings his comedy to ABC's 'Wipeout,' E!'s 'Talk Soup' and hosts Food Network's 'Halloween Baking Championship,' made the remarks as President Donald Trump's four other children from two prior marriages wished him a happy Father's Day via social media. The First Lady responded to the stand-up comedian's Twitter post on Tuesday via her spokesperson.

    When he became the acting White House chief of staff, Mick Mulvaney was more familiar with the media’s critical portrayal of President Trump the family man than the first dad himself. That changed on one of his first trips with Trump, and it was another eye-opening case of how the media was dead wrong. “The first trip I went with him," he said at the Conservative Political Action Conference, “I bet he called his son [Barron] three times, four times on the trip.” He added, “People forget that Barron’s only 13 years old. We don’t think that about him because...
