Fr. Robert Barron was ordained a priest for the Archdiocese of Chicago in 1986. He has a Masters degree in Philosophy from the Catholic University of America and a Doctorate in Sacred Theology from the Institute Catholique de Paris. He is currently professor of systematic theology at the University of St. Mary of the Lake, Mundelein Seminary. Fr. Barron is the author of four books, including Thomas Aquinas: Spiritual Master, And Now I See: A Theology of Transformation, and most recently, Heaven in Stone and Glass: Experiencing the Spirituality of the Great Cathedrals. He also gives frequent talks, retreats and workshops on issues of theology and spirituality.

He recently delivered a series of lunchtime lectures to Chicago's business, political and cultural leaders on the overall topic "Evangelizing the Culture." The talks were part of the Mission Chicago evangelization effort and were presented at the University Club and the Union League Club, both in downtown Chicago. Please take the time to listen to and be inspired by Father Barron's five highly informative presentations:

"The Catholic Church in the Context of American Culture"
"The Role of the Laity in the Transformation of Society"
"The Church's Social Teaching in Regard to Capitalism"
"Evangelizing Through Beauty"
"Politics as a Moral Enterprise"

"Apocalypto" (SPOILER ALERT)

The good Father also has a wicked awesome podcast of his weekly homily, which is routinely the best homily I've ever heard -- and the kicker is that it's only 15 minutes long. When I listen to it on the way to Mass I get much more out of my priest's homilies. You can subscribe to his podcast, The Word On Fire, by clicking here.
