A ‘Wise and Discerning People’ and its Legislation

By: Ottavio De Bertolis, SJ

A text from Scripture is a good starting point for a broader reflection on the meaning of legislation, its significance for the well-being of a society, and the role of law. I am referring to a passage in Deuteronomy, concerning the laws of Israel, which states, “You must observe them diligently, for this will show your wisdom and discernment to the peoples, who, when they hear all these statutes, will say, “Surely this great nation is a wise and discerning...

In the Name of Dignity

By: Julio L. Martínez, SJ

The declaration Dignitas Infinita (DI) from the Dicastery for the Doctrine of the Faith is a timely document that clearly presents the foundation on which the meaning of human life is based and its incomparable value, without overlooking the most serious violations committed against it. A timely though not unprecedented pronouncement released to coincide with the 75th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, it resonates in the current nihilistic era, which sees values transforming and differences becoming blurred...

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.

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

By: Gustav Schörghofer SJ

These are activities to provide entertainment in one’s free time or while traveling, but for most people they do not represent something meaningful, something on which to spend time and money to any significant extent. 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. The rise of the mystery novel is itself a mystery! “It is now generally accepted that the detective novel and the spy novel rank among the major innovations of the 20th century in the field of fiction. These genres made their sudden appearance in English and French literature in the late 19th and first half of the 20th...

Charity, a ‘Theological Place’

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...
