Europe and Christian Values: An incompatible pair?

By: Giovanni Cucci, SJ

A sign of a trend A proposal contained in guidelines of  the European Commission, released on November 29, to abolish a set of expressions to enable “correct communication” caused much discussion.[1] Among them, the wish for a “Merry Christmas” was to be replaced by “Happy Holidays.” It is a sign of a more general tendency to erase from Europe anything that does not appear to be in line with what is considered to be the common feeling;  think of the...

Religious Life:  From chaos to ‘kairos’?

By: Victor Codina, SJ

They also know that each new cycle of religious life – the transition from monasticism to mendicancy, from mendicancy to modern apostolic congregations – has in some way thrown the previous cycle into crisis.
