The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults
RCIA is a process of preparation and study for all who are interested in becoming Catholic.
The topic for October 14 is Teaching Catholicism-The Ineffable Mystery of God by Bishop Robert E. Barron.
Speaking in cathedrals and a concentration camp, Fr. Barron addresses age-old theological questions: Who or what is God? Can God’s existence be proved? Why is there evil? What is the Trinity? Can religion and science be reconciled?
“Bishop Barron considers St. Anselm’s description of God as “that than which nothing greater can be thought,” and goes on to explain St. Thomas Aquinas’ arguments which support the claim that God truly exists. He also speaks from the Catholic tradition about the nature of God and the challenging question of evil and the existence of God. To provide a vision of the ineffable majesty and mystery of God, Bishop Barron invites us to the heights of the Sinai desert and makes his way to mysterious Istanbul, walks the glittering streets of Paris and then captivates the viewer with the glories of the Sistine Chapel in Rome.”
