The USA Heading Toward Presidential Elections

By: Giovanni Sale, SJ

It appears that the November 5, 2024, U.S. presidential election will be a repeat, albeit in a different historical context, of that of four years ago: Joe Biden versus Donald Trump. Polls have been giving Trump a slight lead for months, but the election outcome is far from a foregone conclusion. According to some Democratic-leaning pundits, the numbers may change as voters become aware that in recent times the U.S. economy has grown, employment increased, and inflation contained.[1] Moreover, as...

Why Modern Art? Should Churches Strive to Accommodate the Art of Our Time?

By: Gustav Schörghofer SJ

During the long months of Covid-19, many museums remained closed. In Vienna, with its famous concert halls and museums, I had the impression that for most people it was not particularly important to go to exhibitions and concerts.

The questions I find myself asking are:...

Can Christians Read Crime Novels?

By: Marc Rastoin, SJ

Within a century, the detective novel, a genre initially considered minor, has become a literary genre of great cultural and social importance.

By: Étienne Grieu SJ

Is charity a “theological place”? By “theological place” we mean one of the “different areas where theological knowledge unfolds, or the different sources from which it draws: Scripture, Tradition, the Fathers, the magisterium, the liturgy,”[1] according to the definition given by theologian Melchior Cano in the 16th century.[2] If it is a matter of systematically ordering the discourse about God, then charity has little chance of being considered a “theological place.” Indeed, it is an experience with uncertain boundaries, with...

Karl Rahner (1904-1984): A Theology in the Service of Proclamation

By: Andreas R. Batlogg, SJ

Karl Rahner continues to be discussed even 40 years after his death. Born on March 5, 1904, in Freiburg, Breisgau, Germany, he entered the Society of Jesus on April 20, 1922, and died on March 30, 1984, in Innsbruck, Austria, a few weeks after turning 80. Arriving in the Tyrolean capital in the summer of 1936, he taught there as a lecturer from 1937 to 1939, and from 1948 to 1963 as professor of dogmatics, until he was called to...

Present and Future of the US Economy

By: Fernando de la Iglesia Viguiristi SJ

On March 5, 2024, in the so-called “Super Tuesday” primaries, there were no surprises. It became virtually certain that Joe Biden and Donald Trump will be the candidates of the Democratic and Republican Parties in the upcoming presidential elections on Tuesday, November 5, 2024. The 2020 race for the White House looks set to be repeated. Against this electoral backdrop, two days later, Biden delivered the traditional State of the Union address in a joint sitting of Congress, that is,...
