The Centenary of the Death of Hermann Rorschach

By: Giovanni Cucci, SJ

The Rorschach test is an instrument every clinical psychologist and psychiatrist is called to reckon with, either in diagnosis or study.

By: Antonio Spadaro, SJ

At 7:20 a.m. on Sunday, April 3, Pope Francis entered a hall of the Nunciature in Malta, where 38 Maltese Jesuits were gathered, including Fr. Roberto Del Riccio, provincial of the Euro-Mediterranean Province, which includes Malta, Italy, Albania and Romania. Francis greeted everyone present, one by one, and then sat down to open a free and spontaneous conversation, as he is wont to do on these occasions. The atmosphere was cordial and fraternal. Francis began: The only memory I have...
