Another Wonderful Video by Father Robert Barron

Here, he discusses how modern culture finds it hard to "hear" the Catholic Church because modern culture has discarded the idea of formal and final causes.

Perhaps I shouldn't say this, but I think there are an awful lot of bad Catholic apologetics and bad Catholic commentary out there. Walk into Veritas books in Abbey Street and take any book from the shelf; most likely even a glance at the blurb will tell you that it's full of platitudes.

Father Barron is one of those commentators who avoids platitudes, and who strikes at the heart of a topic. Here, he addresses an important philosophical question that has profound implications on how Catholics (and their secular critics) view such matters as sex, the family, freedom, and human life-- and a lot more besides.
