Spiritual and religious [Sunday Homily, The Epiphany of the Lord, January 7, 2018]

Added 5 January 2018 by Bishop Robert Barron

Our modern culture suggests a tension between spirituality and religion. But the Magi in today's Gospel demonstrate that when spirituality is lifted up by revelation—when the Magi are told by the religious leaders where the Messiah is to be born—we find the object of our spiritual longing.
