+  #5: Vibrant Paradoxes: The Both/And of Catholicism (full hour)

  • Description: Catholicism is both/and, not either/or. It celebrates the union of contraries--grace and nature, faith and reason, Scripture and tradition, body and soul in a way that the full energy of each opposing element remains in place. At first glance many of these themes seem mutually exclusive, but seen through the Incarnation they reflect new light in every direction. Bishop Robert Barron joins us.

In Vibrant Paradoxes, bestselling author Bishop Robert Barron brings together themes and motifs that many would consider mutually exclusive or, at best, awkward in their juxtaposition. But seen through the Incarnation, these opposites crash together and reflect new light in every direction. This book will train you to see. (learn more)
