Francis’ Vision for a Renewed Theology

By: James Hanvey, SJ

“I think that the study of theology is of the greatest importance. It is an indispensable service to the Church.”[1] The past ten years of the papacy of Pope Francis have been a time of extraordinary activity and challenge for the Church. Whether involved with internal renewal and synodality, with the urgency of apostolic outreach to other faiths, or opposing conflicts and the ever-widening consequences of the ecological crisis, the pope has been concerned with the Church’s mission. His easy...

Don Lorenzo Milani, Priest and Prior of Barbiana

By: Giancarlo Pani SJ

On June 20, 2017, after visiting the tomb of Fr. Primo Mazzolari, Pope Francis went to the cemetery in Barbiana, the resting place of Fr. Lorenzo Milani, another challenging prophet of our time. There they were facing each other: Francis and Lorenzo, in silence. With the pope praying alone, it was almost a showdown. The pope had recently freed from censorship Don Lorenzo’s book, Pastoral Experiences.[1] In a message for the publication of his Opera Omnia,[2] he had made it...

China’s Role in the Reconciliation of Iran and Saudi Arabia

By: Vladimir Pachkov, SJ

In Beijing on March 10, 2023, representatives of Iran and Saudi Arabia signed an agreement in which they pledged to restore diplomatic relations within two months. These had been disrupted in 2016 after Saudi Arabia’s embassy in Tehran was attacked following the execution of Shiite cleric, Nimr Baqir al-Nimr, in Saudi Arabia.

Renewing and Realizing the Social Doctrine of the Church

By: Card. Michael Czerny, SJ

In the fourth century, Saint Gregory of Nyssa stated that it is necessary to “go from beginning to beginning, through beginnings that have no end.” With this new beginning in my heart, I intend to offer a summary of what Pope Francis, ten years into his pontificate, is teaching and encouraging us to put into practice in our synodal journey. I will first explain the importance of the Aparecida Document (ApD) for the whole Catholic Church. I will then focus...

‘Little Brother’ A Journey to Find the Truth

By: Claudio Zonta SJ

“On the plane they gave me a painting by a boy, Daniel, who paints his anguish as he is drowning and wants to save his sinking partner. I recommend a book, Hermanito, that is ‘Little Brother.’ It came out a year ago. It is the story of an older brother who leaves Guinea in search of his younger brother. It makes us understand what the desert crossing is like: the trafficking of migrants, imprisonment, torture, the sea journey…” Pope Francis...

The European Soul and Prophetic Reception: Francis’ trip to Hungary

By: Antonio Spadaro, SJ

Pope Francis returned to Hungary following his earlier trip for the International Eucharistic Congress in Budapest on September 12, 2021.[1] He is the second pontiff to visit the country after St. John Paul II, who visited in 1991 and 1996. The central image on the logo for this trip was the Szechenyi Chain Bridge in Budapest, Hungary’s oldest bridge crossing the Danube. A symbol of the capital and the country, it was originally built to unite the cities of Buda...
