Word on Fire’s Bishop Barron: ‘We’ve Dumbed Down the Faith Too Much for Too Long’

Nuria Chiccon
Bishop Robert Barron speaks to tens of thousands of young people at a World Youth Day gathering in Lisbon, Portugal, Aug. 2. The event, hosted by the U.S. bishops’ conference, culminated in a Eucharistic procession and Holy Hour.

The bishop wants young people to know ‘Jesus, who loves them, who walks with them, and wants to be the Lord of their life.’
