The following comes from an August 20 Angelus article:
Archbishop José H. Gomez announced the pastoral assignments for Bishops-elect Joseph V. Brennan, David G. O’Connell and Robert Barron on August 17.
Bishop-elect Brennan will serve as the episcopal vicar of the San Fernando Pastoral Region; Bishop-elect O’Connell will serve the as episcopal vicar of the San Gabriel Pastoral Region; and Bishop-elect Barron will serve as the episcopal vicar for the Santa Barbara Pastoral Region.
The five pastoral regions were established in 1986 and also include the pastoral regions of Our Lady of the Angels and San Pedro, where Auxiliary Bishops Edward W. Clark and Oscar Solis serve.
Archbishop Gomez thanked Msgr. James Loughnane and Msgr. Michael J. Jennet for serving as episcopal vicars of the San Gabriel and Santa Barbara regions. He also thanked Auxiliary Bishop Gerald Wilkerson, who is retiring as episcopal vicar of the San Fernando region.
Bishop-elect Barron, a priest in the Archdiocese of Chicago, is well known for his work in the media. His Word on Fire media apostolate donated his “Catholicism” series to the parishes of the Archdiocese of Los Angeles.
Bishop-elect ROBERT BARRON is also well known for his public HERESY for teaching that we can hope ALMOST EVERYONE will be saved –
in direct defiance of JESUS’s words – that “MANY” will not be Saved, “FEW” will be Saved. Mt: 7:13-14; and Lk 13:23-28.
No Clergy should insinuate that Jesus is a liar.
“Fr. Robert Barron on Whether Hell is Crowded or Empty”
Dottie, you are kidding right? Read Luke again. Many will try to get through the narrow gate but won’t make it. Matthew says many will try but fail. That doesn’t mean that we should not hope for lots of people to pass through. Do you think that we should pray that only a few make it to heaven? Do you know what the Church teaches? Have you ever read the final commendation for a body at burial when God is asked to take the soul directly to heaven? There is no heresy here. To say so makes you sound like a radio talk-show host and I know you don’t want to be one of those.
@Bob One: [” Do you know what the Church teaches? Have you ever read the final commendation for a body at burial when God is asked to take the soul directly to heaven?”] How about reading what Jesus said to Nicodemus instead.
First of all,hell is not mentioned in either of those passages.
Second, I have the Catholic Church interpret those passages as you do.
Stick to what the text actually says.
Father Barron is not a heretic. If he denied the existence of hell, that would be a heresy. If he denied that a person could go to hell, that would be a heresy. There is no teaching on how many people are in hell.
I think Father Barron is wrong and it may be simplistic and an error, but it is not a heresy.
The Evil influence of Goo-Ghoul also targets the Church:
Google Technology will elect next president
It was technology that won Barack Obama his two elections and it will be technology that will bring Hillary Clinton back to the power of the White House—email scandal notwithstanding.
“Research I have been directing in recent years suggests that Google, Inc., has amassed far more power to control elections—indeed, to control a wide variety of opinions and beliefs—than any company in history has ever had.
Google’s search algorithm can easily shift the voting preferences of…
I am glad to see that Bishop Thomas Curry of Santa Barbara was replaced by Bishop Barron. It was Bishop Curry who advised Cardinal Roger Mahony to use psichiatrists that were also lawyers to keep sexual abuse secret in Los Angeles. Bishop Thomas Curry also expelled the Latin Mass that had been held for 16 years from San Juan Buenaventura Mission. Bishop Barron can only be an improvement.
