Bishop Barron gave a talk at Google Headquarters on his recent book, Religion and the Opening Up of the Mind.
Bishop Barron addressed a room full of Google and YouTube employees on how religion doesn’t shut down the questing intellect, but in fact opens up our minds, causing us to seek the fulfillment of our deepest longings. He argues that these yearnings won’t be satisfied by wealth, pleasure, power, or honor, but only by the God who wired us to be satisfied in him.
His talk has been viewed over 125,000 times online and remains one of the most-viewed videos from the “Talks at Google” series in 2018.
On January 16, 2019, Bishop Barron visited the headquarters of Amazon in Seattle, WA, to discuss his new book, “Arguing Religion,” with Amazon employees.
Bishop Robert Barron is an author, speaker, theologian, and founder of Word on Fire, a global media ministry. Word on Fire reaches millions of people by utilizing the tools of new media to draw people into or back to the Catholic Faith.
