I think Father Robert Barron completely misses the point with regard to Andrew Sullivan’s piece in Newsweek. However, when he begins speaking about how Paul and Mark proclaimed the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus, Barron truly gives a “word on fire.” Oh, how I loved hearing him describe the apostles’ references to Jesus’ cross as a “taunt” to the Roman Empire. Truly no one has ever spoken truth to power like Jesus and His apostles. And for a moment there, Barron was echoing them.
“Jesus is Lord!”
