Growing in Discernment: Aids for Growing in the Ability to Discern

By: Diego Fares SJ

In a private meeting with Polish Jesuits in Krakow, Pope Francis said: “the Church needs to grow in discernment; in her capacity to discern.”1  He emphasized the importance of priestly formation and exhorted the Jesuits to work together with seminarians, especially by “giving them what we ourselves received from Ignatius’ Spiritual Exercises: the wisdom of discernment.”2 But what is discernment? There are a lot of good theoretical definitions of it. Here I simply take it to mean the capacity of...

Europe Deserves to be Built

By: Antonio Spadaro, SJ

On March 25, in the Renaissance setting of Rome’s Campidoglio, 27 leaders of European Union countries and three representatives from its Brussels-based institutions, Jean-Claude Juncker, Donald Tusk and Antonio Tajani, gathered to sign a common declaration for the 60th anniversary of the signing of the Treaties of Rome. As the Italian Prime Minister, Paolo Gentiloni, underlined in his speech, the occasion marked how “this has been a voyage of achievements and hopes that have come to fruition, with others yet...

The Priest and the Maturity of All Things

By: La Civiltà Cattolica

“The ultimate destiny of the universe is in the fullness of God, which has already been attained by the risen Christ, the measure of the maturity of all things.” Here, I am citing Pope Francis from his encyclical Laudato Si’ (LS), n.83, and, in turn, his footnote which makes explicit reference to the origin of this thought, Fr. Teilhard de Chardin. Teilhard (1881-1955) was a Jesuit, anthropologist and spiritual figure of great importance. He lived through the far-reaching tensions of...

Bob Dylan The Song is Still Blowing in the Wind

By: Claudio Zonta SJ

It is not an easy undertaking to size up the elusive, contradictory character of Bob Dylan. A minstrel, a poet, perhaps even a prophet, but most surely an artist who is beyond the time he is living in. This complexity is evident in Dylan’s compositional language: his songs are sometimes narrative and they nail the miseries inflicted by power with a merciless look at the world; at other times, they prove to be symbolic in an attempt to grasp the...

Sadness: Precious Teachings from this Emotion

By: Giovanni Cucci, SJ

An outlawed feeling Sadness is certainly not a desired or attractive feeling with its dense cluster of synonyms that are difficult to separate with any precision (boredom, angst, depression). It never has been, even if it has had a certain consideration in literary and philosophical circles (think of Spleen, the meditative or melancholic sadness, of Romanticism and decadence, or of the angst of Heidegger as the cipher of human existence) and has, in general, influenced the entire history of culture...

Zygmunt Bauman: The Sociologist who Scrutinized the Times

By: Francesco Occhetta, SJ

On January 9, 2017, Zygmunt Bauman passed away. He was a Polish sociologist of British citizenship and was one of the best-known interpreters of postmodernism. The news was given by the Polish daily newspaper Gazeta Wyborcza. Bauman was 91 years old and had lived a life “sated of days,” as Scripture says, not only for their quantity, but for the depth at which they were lived. With his death, the curtain goes down on one of the leading intellectuals of...
