The Unity of Christ and the Paschal Mystery

By: Enrico Cattaneo, SJ

The Gospel according to Mark opens with a clear statement about the identity of Jesus Christ as the Son of God (Mark 1:1). But another character also appears in the Gospels, referred to as the “Son of Man,” who does not seem to be  identified  with the Son of God himself. In fact, Jesus often speaks of him in the third person singular, as if he were someone distinct from himself: “He then began to teach them that the Son...

Whither the United Kingdom?

By: Fernando de la Iglesia Viguiristi SJ

Since  the Brexit referendum in 2016, the United Kingdom (UK) has been plunged into a deep crisis. Each new prime minister seems less able to solve problems. Even as late as October 2022, the country  was on the brink of a financial crisis, which led to  the resignation of the newly sworn-in prime minister, Liz Truss. Her successor, Rishi Sunak, admitted that the UK faced “a deep economic crisis.” He announced “difficult but necessary decisions” to “fix” the economic problems...

What is God’s Time? Mercy in the Pontificate of Francis

By: Antonio Spadaro, SJ

Ten years after the election of Pope Francis, it seems appropriate for us to return to one of the pillars of his pontificate: mercy. It can be identified as the “name of God,”[1] but also as God’s “time.”  That mercy has been a pillar of his pontificate can be deduced, first of all, from the fact that on the eve of the Fourth Sunday in Lent, at St. Peter’s, on March 13, 2015 – the second anniversary of his election...

Death as a Gift

By: José Ignacio González Faus, SJ

Current advances in science have meant that medicine has been able to prolong life, but not enhance its quality; very often medicine succeeds only in postponing death. This has given rise to the act of  “euthanasia,” by which, rather than a good death, people mean a good path toward it, and claim  “the right to die with dignity,” which, according to the egotistical way we humans tend to reason, confuses dignity with the absence of discomfort and with not needing...

Catechumens are the Church’s Treasures

By: UCA News

UCA News, the popular, Asia-based news service, published a series of biographical articles on Catechumens during Lent. These are inspiring stories of people responding to God's call, often in difficult circumstances. Since ancient times, Lent has been the season of preparation for Baptism. We who have been baptized engage in acts of prayer, self-denial, and charity to prepare to renew our Baptismal promises at Easter. For catechumens it is the season of their final preparation to receive the Sacraments of...
