Stretching Out to Great Things: Bishop Barron’s University of St. Thomas Address

Video from Bishop Robert Barron

Bishop Barron begins by telling us our culture today produces Pusillanimity or weak Souls. Whereas when a soul is transformed by Christ we get Magne Anima - a great man.

"Friends, this past weekend, I was honored to deliver the commencement address to the graduating class at the University of St. Thomas in Houston. The entire point of a Catholic intellectual formation is to produce great souls. A great soul doesn’t invent her own values; rather, she intuits the marvelous intellectual, moral, and aesthetic values that are found in the objective order—and then she responds to them with her whole heart." from video introduction.
