Healing a Wounded Church: Lessons from post-genocide Rwanda

By: Marcel Uwineza, SJ

Introduction In Vienna, in the summer of 2002, a Rwandan theologian had a meeting with the Austrian Catholic press. He was asked some challenging questions, including: “What image would you choose to represent the current situation in Rwanda?” Without hesitation, he answered, “A cemetery and a construction site.” He was well aware of how things were in that country, but he could not describe it as he would have liked. In fact, perhaps there was no more effective image than...

‘The Fabelmans’ – Love Film, Love Life

By: Piero Loredan, SJ

“No one’s private life runs smoothly. That only happens in the movies, Alphonse. No traffic jams, no dead periods. Movies go along smoothly like trains in the night.

The Tunisia of Kais Saied

By: Giovanni Sale, SJ

Peter Steele, Jesuit Poet (1939-2012)

By: Peter Steele

Man on Donkey Beaten, still breathing, as awkward as a dog, He swags across the donkey, unaware Of who’s beside them, footsore in the slog Uphill for shelter and a kind of care.   Under the bloody bandages, some oil Soothes where wine has washed away the dirt To leave him clean and mortal. Alien soil, Continuing fear, is mingling hope with hurt.   Downslope, the priest is hustling on his way, Clean as a whistle, and the levite too,...

The Silence of God

By: Joseph Lobo, SJ

The context Many people are overwhelmed by what is going on in our times: the rise of fundamentalism, deceitful populism, malicious majoritarianism, violent right-wing politics with their jingoistic policies, the abject poverty of the masses, forced displacement of people, misery unleashed by the COVID pandemic, the “almighty” corporates building their empires on the skeletons of the exploited, the expanding ecological disasters. Above all, people are dumbfounded by the oft-perceived and dreadfully deadening “silence” of God, and a resulting human cry...
