This is well worth spending 55 minutes watching, in my opinion. Here’s the blurb:
Bishop Robert Barron speaks at Google HQ about religion and the opening up of the mind. Bishop Barron is the founder of Word on Fire Catholic Ministries and Auxiliary Bishop of the Archdiocese of Los Angeles. Bishop Barron is a #1 Amazon bestselling author and has published numerous books, essays, and articles on theology and the spiritual life, in addition to his regular YouTube videos (@wordonfirevideo).
Bishop Barron discusses how our minds restlessly seek, and how religion, at its best, never shuts down the mind, but opens it up. He explores the nature of “beatitudo”, following the philosophy of Thomas Aquinas to conclude that wealth, power, pleasure, and honor will never satisfy, but only God can satisfy the infinite desires of our hearts.
Look, I know how Bp Barron upset many traditionalists a while back by suggesting that the future population of hell may be much less than some have hoped for, but I’m sure that is now just water under the bridge.
Watch him engage the young clever seeking people of today, masterfully, and learn from it.
