The Human Cost of the Syrian War

By: GianPaolo Salvini, SJ

The war in Syria has occupied a great deal of space in all forms of media for some time now. Our journal has reported numerous times,[1] attempting to help provide an understanding of a war with no end in sight, in which friends and enemies separate and come together again at different times in a kaleidoscope of alliances and conflicts that are often incomprehensible. Every piece mentions the victims, especially the innocent victims of this ruthless and never-ending war. In...

Paul VI and Vatican II

By: Giovanni Sale, SJ

The canonization of Blessed Paul VI, the pope who masterfully led to its conclusion the Second Vatican Council – convoked a few years earlier by John XXIII – gives us the opportunity to revisit, albeit briefly, some significant moments of the conciliar event at which he was a propeller and tireless mediator in search of consensus and communion among the Council fathers. Giovanni Battista Montini, Archbishop of Milan, was elected to the papacy on June 21, 1963. According to many...

Pino Puglisi: Priest and Martyr

By: Giancarlo Pani SJ

“The Gospel, the Mafia, the frontiers”: a few words that summarize “who Father Pino Puglisi, the parish priest of Brancaccio killed on September 15, 1993, really was. He was a man of unshakable faith and a master of spirituality, an educator of young people and a reference point for families, but also a frontier priest who, in order not to betray fidelity to the Gospel, knew how to live out his choices in a Mafia-dominated territory, even to the ultimate...

The Young Have Reawakened the Synodality of the Church

By: La Civiltà Cattolica

The Synod of Bishops dedicated to “Young People, the Faith and Vocational Discernment” has ended. One thing emerged clearly from the working sessions and the entire synodal process that began in January 2017: we must avoid speaking of the Church “and” the youth, for the youth are not an “object” as they might be considered for marketing purposes. To organize a Synod on young people without involving young people would be senseless. What is the Spirit saying to the Church...

The Architecture of Silence and Post-Secularism

By: Luigi Territo, SJ

At the outset of Faith as an Option,[1] author Hans Joas questions the causal relationship between modernization and secularization.[2] According to many 20th-century philosophers and sociologists, modernization in the West would lead not only to a freeing of public conscience from the illiberal and obscurantist legacies of religions, but also to their complete disappearance. Today, sociological and statistical research conducted by the most important international research institutes describes a general and unexpected “return to the sacred”[3] and a renewed presence...
