Bishop Robert Barron speaks about religion and the opening up of the mind. He is the founder of Word on Fire Catholic Ministries, Auxiliary Bishop of the Archdiocese of Los Angeles and is a #1 Amazon bestselling author having published numerous books, essays, and articles on theology and the spiritual life, in addition to his regular YouTube videos (@wordonfirevideo). 

Bishop Barron discusses how our minds restlessly seek, and how religion, at its best, never shuts down the mind, but opens it up. He explores the nature of "beatitudo", following the philosophy of Thomas Aquinas to conclude that wealth, power, pleasure, and honor will never satisfy, but only God can satisfy the infinite desires of our hearts.
