The Democratic Republic of the Congo and South Sudan: Two countries, many facets

By: Jean-Pierre Bodjoko, SJ

The first thing that the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) and South Sudan have in common is the fact that they are in the heart of Africa, or nearly so. The two countries also have something else in common: they have both been going through a permanent political crisis and a pandemic of violence for years, albeit each with its own peculiarities. Insecurity in the DRC is most pronounced in its eastern part, while in South Sudan it is spread...

For a Theology of the Discernment of Spirits

By: Miguel Ángel Fiorito, SJ

The Spiritual Exercises (SE) are St. Ignatius’ kerygmatic legacy, his “Gospel.”[1] The practice of the Exercises – in various modes suited to the needs of each exercitant, always respecting the integrity of the steps involved in the process – is ordered to the choice of one’s state of life or its reform.

Russia in the Arctic: Between realpolitik and mythology of the north

By: Vladimir Pachkov, SJ

Russia is the largest state in the Arctic area, but it is not an Arctic nation, since...

‘The Book of Revolutions’: The battles of priests, prophets and kings that birthed the Torah

By: David Neuhaus, SJ

For centuries, Jews were seen by Christians as little more than blind adherents of an Old Testament they could not readily understand, a text that had no independent meaning after Christ had come. According to the polemical expression of Saint Paul, a veil covered their minds, preventing them from comprehending: “their minds were made dull, for to this day the same veil remains when the old covenant is read. It has not been removed, because only in Christ is it taken away.” (2...
