Building Bridges in Sarajevo: An international conference on Catholic Theological Ethics


By: James Keenan, SJ

Sixteen years ago a global network of Catholic theological ethicists was born.[1] A year later an international planning committee met at Leuven University and developed the name, “Catholic Theological Ethics in the World Church (CTEWC)”, and articulated a mission statement that recognizes “the need: to appreciate the challenge of pluralism; to dialogue from and beyond local culture; and, to interconnect within a world Church not dominated solely by a northern paradigm.”[2] Today there are more than 1,500 theological ethicists around...

Digital Argonauts: The young and the search for meaning


By: Francesco Occhetta, SJ

Recognition is rarely given to young people’s ability to manage the rapid anthropological change that is occurring. It causes us to experience time as an eternal now and space as something to be navigated, no longer as a path composed of definite rules.[1] However, the digital Argonauts[2] – the new generation whose compasses are their smartphones – know how to live in the age of interconnectivity and transform the desert of opportunity into an oasis. They are self-taught, learn languages,...

The Human Cost of the Syrian War


By: GianPaolo Salvini, SJ

The war in Syria has occupied a great deal of space in all forms of media for some time now. Our journal has reported numerous times,[1] attempting to help provide an understanding of a war with no end in sight, in which friends and enemies separate and come together again at different times in a kaleidoscope of alliances and conflicts that are often incomprehensible. Every piece mentions the victims, especially the innocent victims of this ruthless and never-ending war. In...

Paul VI and Vatican II


By: Giovanni Sale, SJ

The canonization of Blessed Paul VI, the pope who masterfully led to its conclusion the Second Vatican Council – convoked a few years earlier by John XXIII – gives us the opportunity to revisit, albeit briefly, some significant moments of the conciliar event at which he was a propeller and tireless mediator in search of consensus and communion among the Council fathers. Giovanni Battista Montini, Archbishop of Milan, was elected to the papacy on June 21, 1963. According to many...

Pino Puglisi: Priest and Martyr


By: Giancarlo Pani SJ

“The Gospel, the Mafia, the frontiers”: a few words that summarize “who Father Pino Puglisi, the parish priest of Brancaccio killed on September 15, 1993, really was. He was a man of unshakable faith and a master of spirituality, an educator of young people and a reference point for families, but also a frontier priest who, in order not to betray fidelity to the Gospel, knew how to live out his choices in a Mafia-dominated territory, even to the ultimate...

The Tyrannical King and Poor Naboth: A never-ending story


By: Giancarlo Pani SJ

“The story of Naboth is an old one, but it is repeated every day.”[1] This is how Ambrose begins the tale of poor Naboth whose death was contrived by King Ahab so that he could take possession of his vineyard. Naboth of Israel, Ahab of Samaria, his wife Jezebel and the prophet Elijah are the characters in the episode that is found in the First Book of Kings.[2] They are the protagonists of the past: the king who is powerful...

The Gospel according to Bruce Springsteen


By: Claudio Zonta SJ

The existential, Christian journey of American singer-songwriter Bruce Springsteen is traced through his complex and vast discography in a recent publication by Luca Miele, a journalist of the Italian daily newspaper Avvenire.[1] In five sweeping chapters – The Land of Dreams; In the Name of the Father; The Tunnel of Love; The Rising; In the Belly of the Whale – he shows how “The Boss” has tried throughout his artistic career to penetrate and understand the social and human reality...

The Architecture of Silence and Post-Secularism


By: Luigi Territo, SJ

At the outset of Faith as an Option,[1] author Hans Joas questions the causal relationship between modernization and secularization.[2] According to many 20th-century philosophers and sociologists, modernization in the West would lead not only to a freeing of public conscience from the illiberal and obscurantist legacies of religions, but also to their complete disappearance. Today, sociological and statistical research conducted by the most important international research institutes describes a general and unexpected “return to the sacred”[3] and a renewed presence...
