Sport for All: The Holy See and the ‘signs of the times’ in the world of sport

By: Patrick Kelly, SJ

The global pandemic has led many people to a deeper reflection on their lives and to a renewed search for meaning. Many have made important changes in their lives. This was the context in which the leaders of two Vatican Dicasteries – the one for Laity, Family and Life and the one for Culture and Education – conceived the idea of convening an international summit for deeper reflection on the human and cultural significance of sport and the importance of...

Pope Francis Celebrates the 10th Anniversary of his Landmark Election

By: La Civiltà Cattolica, English Edition

On Monday, March 13, Pope Francis celebrated the 10th anniversary of his landmark election. Reflecting the pontiff’s own focus, the focus of this journal is all-embracing, it reaches out to the periphery – one that is geographical, as much as it is social and economic.

Yet, above all, every one of you bears a wealth of humanity and a religious sense, treasures to welcome rather than to fear. Many of you are Muslim or members of another religion. You come from various countries, from different situations. We mustn’t be afraid of differences! Fraternity enables us...

How Pope Francis Sees Education

By: Luiz Fernando Klein, SJ

The concept of school Francis considers schools as being free of geographical boundaries and walls.[1] He calls each school “a platform for drawing close to children and young people” (CV 221). Indeed, a school is not an end in itself;  it is a platform, a support area that serves as a base for other operations. Schools  are also “privileged places of personal development” (ibid.). The school is not enclosed within boundaries and schedules;  it goes beyond them. Addressed to the...
