Corruption that Kills: Floribert Bwana Chui’s story

By: Francesco Occhetta, SJ

The story of Floribert Bwana Chui, a young Congolese customs officer, is the story of a man assassinated for not having succumbed to corruption.1 Looking at his life and death helps us to understand new forms of martyrdom: this is a silent sacrifice far from the interest of the media that disturbs the social and political life of those countries where corruption has become endemic. This was repeated by Pope Francis during his trip to Africa in 2015 when a...

Silence: Interview with Martin Scorsese

By: Antonio Spadaro, SJ

It was March 3 when I rang the doorbell at the Scorsese home in New York. It was a cold day but bright. It was 1 p.m. I was welcomed into the kitchen, like in a family. I was asked if I wanted a good cup of coffee. "Italiano," is added. I accept. I was cold. I arrived at the Scorsese home a bit early and had preferred to wait circling the block. The idea of a warm cup of...

Catholicism in 21st Century China

By: You Guo Jiang, SJ

Armed Conflicts in Africa

By: Arsene Brice Bado, SJ

Many states resemble aggregates of entities forced to live together while doing their utmost to affirm their own uniqueness. Thus, the political space becomes the field in which these different entities enter into competition, at times violently, endangering national unity. In particular, after the beginning of the 1990s,...

The Mission in 17th-Century China

By: Nicolas Standaert, SJ

The mission in China in the 17th century still draws the attention of many scholars, such as historians of science, theologians and missiologists today. This mission, which in the first hundred years was predominantly led by the Jesuits, was noteworthy in several regards: the Jesuit missionaries adopted a policy of accommodation to Chinese culture: they evangelized, they propagated indirectly by using European science and technology, and adopted an attitude of toleration toward Confucian values and rites. The development of an...

Growing in Discernment: Aids for Growing in the Ability to Discern

By: Diego Fares SJ

In a private meeting with Polish Jesuits in Krakow, Pope Francis said: “the Church needs to grow in discernment; in her capacity to discern.”1  He emphasized the importance of priestly formation and exhorted the Jesuits to work together with seminarians, especially by “giving them what we ourselves received from Ignatius’ Spiritual Exercises: the wisdom of discernment.”2 But what is discernment? There are a lot of good theoretical definitions of it. Here I simply take it to mean the capacity of...
