Sadness: Precious Teachings from this Emotion

By: Giovanni Cucci, SJ

An outlawed feeling Sadness is certainly not a desired or attractive feeling with its dense cluster of synonyms that are difficult to separate with any precision (boredom, angst, depression). It never has been, even if it has had a certain consideration in literary and philosophical circles (think of Spleen, the meditative or melancholic sadness, of Romanticism and decadence, or of the angst of Heidegger as the cipher of human existence) and has, in general, influenced the entire history of culture...

Zygmunt Bauman: The Sociologist who Scrutinized the Times

By: Francesco Occhetta, SJ

On January 9, 2017, Zygmunt Bauman passed away. He was a Polish sociologist of British citizenship and was one of the best-known interpreters of postmodernism.

The Figure of the Bishop According to Pope Francis

By: Diego Fares SJ

In his opening address to the 68th General Assembly of the Italian Episcopal Conference in May 2015, Pope Francis asked the bishops not to be “pilots” but real “pastors.”1 On many occasions the pontiff has appealed to bishops to be “bishops who are pastors, not princes,” making references to images he had already used when he governed his previous diocese. In 2006, while giving a retreat for the bishops of Spain, in his introductory meditation on the Magnificat, he spoke...

The Border as a Bridge: Migration in Latin America and the Caribbean

By: Mauricio Garcian Duran, SJ

The issue of migration has been emerging strongly in the last few years as a critical reality in the entire world; it is bringing up major challenges for national governments, for societies and their organizations, and for international institutions.1 The dynamics of globalization have created a paradoxical situation. While seeing a remarkable opening of national borders for the transit of goods and resources protected by economic agreements and free-trade treaties, we are also witnessing a rigid closure in regards to...
