Egypt, Land of Civilizations and Alliances: Francis’ dramatic, therapeutic and prophetic journey

By: Antonio Spadaro, SJ

From the Tiber to the Nile The papal plane touched down at Cairo International Airport shortly after 2 p.m. having flown over the Nile Delta and the sandy colored houses of the Egyptian capital. In the distance, the silhouettes of the pyramids reminded the papal entourage and the journalists on board that we were about to land in a country with ancient civilization, of which the people of Egypt are the heirs. In fact, in his first speech at the...

A Cultural Spring for Iranian Women Artists

By: Luigi Territo, SJ

The narration of conflicts is entrusted to geopolitical analysis and to news reports: our days are crowded with words and images, causing a sort of numbness to tragedy by endless repetition. But there is a lens capable of showing us facts and interpretations, an upside-down view of things that crosses the boundary between life and its representation: art, and those forms of artistic resistance that give a voice and form to the unsaid, to things whispered, to the implicit.

Christians and Muslims in Tomorrow’s Europe

By: Damian Howard, SJ

On May 6, 2016, Sadiq Khan was elected Mayor of London by 57 per cent of the electorate, making him the politician with the third largest personal democratic mandate in Europe. Much of the publicity that attended his victory focused on his religious affiliation; he was now, after all, Europe’s highest profile Muslim politician. Although some right-wing commentators predictably and offensively attributed the result to a pre-emptive cringe before a growing Muslim population, most saw it as a token of...
