‘Anthropocene: The Human Era’

By: Mauro Bossi, SJ

Anthropocene – The Human Era is a documentary film released in 2018 and directed by Jennifer Baichwal, Edward Burtynsky and Nicholas de Pencier.

‘Fratelli Tutti’ and ‘Ubuntu’ on Cosmological Friendship

By: Elias Opongo, SJ

Pope Francis’ encyclical Fratelli Tutti has a number of parallels with the African ethic of Ubuntu.

The production is remarkable for the poetic nature...

History in the Age of Post-Truth

By: Pedro Rodríguez López, SJ

When the last troops of the army of Philip VI left Calais, the city had no choice but to surrender its keys in the hope that the lives of its inhabitants would be spared in recognition of the heroism shown during the siege. However, England was eager to reward the hours and lives of its men spent in that campaign, so it had no intention of leaving without a tribute of blood. Although some of his men tried to convince...

A Letter from Pope Francis to ‘La Civiltà Cattolica’

By: Pope Francis

My best wishes as you resume publication of the Spanish edition of La Civiltà Cattolica! Yours is a unique journal, one of a kind, and not only because it is already 170 years old.

With editions in Italian, English, French, Russian, Chinese, Korean and Japanese, you...
