Bishop Robert Barron on Beauty and Baseball

The Los Angeles Religious Education Congress took place in Anaheim last weekend, drawing tens of thousands of attendees from across the country.

Bishop Robert Barron, auxiliary bishop of the Archdiocese of Los Angeles, presented one of the keynote speeches and helped attendees focus on the importance of beauty, especially in our mission of evangelization. He also shared his own experience of the beauty of baseball – and how it can help us better understand evangelization in the modern world.

Here is an excerpt of Bishop Barron’s keynote, as heard this week on Morning Air®.
