Jesus Never Imposes: ‘Amoris Laetitia’, discernment, and Christian maturity

By: Pietro M. Schiavone, SJ

“It is important to observe,” writes the Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew of Constantinople, “that Amoris Laetitia (AL) reminds us above all of God’s mercy and compassion, rather than solely moral regulations and canonical rules.”[1] This is a theme that Pope Francis has been repeating since the beginning of his pontificate. In his speech opening the Pastoral Congress of the diocese of Rome,[2] he affirmed “the sensitivity with which God looks at our families helps us to direct our consciences in the...

A time of Post-Truth or Post-Conscience

By: Francesco Occhetta, SJ

Against the “unhappy consciousness” in Christianity

By: Dominique Bertrand, SJ

Originality of a Theological Tradition All doctrines of the faith are the result of efforts made by Christians over the centuries to counter various and varied attacks, both internal and external. Doctrine has been defined this way since the beginning. Consider the Greek Fathers Athanasius (295-373), Basil (330-379), Gregory of Nazianzus (329-390), and Gregory of Nyssa (d.394) who asserted against Arianism the Trinity of Persons and their eternal equality that is revealed through the Incarnation of the Son and the...
