Whose Brothers and Sisters? Three criteria for an impossible fraternity

By: Emmanuel Sicre

There is nothing new about stating that we, as human beings,  need to live in fraternity,  nor in adding that this is an urgent matter. We do not  doubt that this cry has been raised down  through the centuries by people who have given their lives for this ideal. What always requires a  new approach, however, is to do so in each different context. We must ask the Spirit to show us with creative fidelity what new ways, what updated...

John Wu Ching Hsiung (吴经熊): A Catholic philosopher of law and educator

By: You Guo Jiang, SJ

Christians of the 21st century, both in China and the West, have neglected or forgotten the brilliant and prolific jurist, poet, educator, philosopher and Chinese Catholic scholar John H. Wu. His writings in legal philosophy, his dialogue with the West, his spiritual journey, his contribution to evangelization in China, his translation of the New Testament, the Psalms and the Daodejing, and his vision of inculturation had an enormous influence on the Republic of China and the Catholic Church of that...

The Atlantic Divide

By: Drew Christiansen SJ

To express his dismay, President Francois Macron...

By: Guy Consolmagno, SJ

“These past two years have exposed how the science vs. faith discourse isn’t an abstract ideological debate but a false dichotomy that has disastrous real-world consequences,” writes Tish Harrison Warren in a recent opinion column of the New York Times.[1] Her insight was motivated by research showing that evangelical Christians in the United States were one of the sectors of society that was the least-vaccinated against the Covid virus. The implication is that a distrust of science in this community,...

Ignatius and His Reading at Loyola

By: Federico Lombardi, SJ

We are celebrating an Ignatian year, marking the 500th anniversary of the conversion of the Saint of Loyola. Almost all of us know that his conversion took place while he was infirm and convalescing from a wound caused by a  cannon ball during the French attack on the fortress of Pamplona on May 20, 1521. Iñigo wanted to defend it in the name of honor and ideals of loyalty to his king despite the obviously untenable situation. Many also know...

The Theology of History in the Book of Judith

By: Saverio Corradino, SJ

The Book of Judith The Book of Judith, more than describing an event, aims to present a theology of history. In one single episode the whole story of God’s people is emblematically summarized as an apocalyptic confrontation with the forces of evil.[1] The victory of Judith – woman and widow – is the messianic proclamation of Israel triumphing over the demonic power of evil. In the first seven chapters, the book tells the story of Nebuchadnezzar, the powerful king of...
