Justice: An uncomfortable virtue

By: Giovanni Cucci, SJ

A mirror to our complex society Among the cardinal virtues (prudence, justice, fortitude, temperance), the only one currently under philosophical investigation is justice, thanks mainly to its being proposed by a new contractualism. This is an attempt to present it without using a metaphysical and religious perspective, but identifying evaluation criteria that allow each person to decide as “a free and equal rational being.”[1] It is a proposal for our complex society, where a shared vision of life is lacking....

Evangelization according to Saint Paul

By: Marc Rastoin, SJ

Saint Paul is the apostle par excellence. When one thinks of evangelization and missionary life, one thinks of him. A man of the great cities, he lived among the capitals of the eastern provinces of the Roman Empire (Ephesus, Corinth, Antioch, Thessalonica). Born into the diaspora, he traveled to Jerusalem for his studies as a Pharisee. A Jew of noble birth, his education gave him the best that Hellenistic-Judaic culture had to offer. At first a persecutor of Christians and...

The Paralympic Games

By: Giancarlo Pani SJ

In Tokyo, three Italian women captured the attention of the world in the 100 meter sprint [1]: all three ran with a prosthetic leg and set a record.

The first of the three Italian women, Ambra Sabatini, aged 19, was...

Connecting Souls: Tolerance and inclusivity

By: Antonio Spadaro, SJ

We live in a fractured and fragmented world. Conflicts are exacerbated to the point of assuming the forms of what the Pope calls a “third world war in pieces.” Nationalism resurfaces, social sense seems lost, and the common good seems to be the least common of goods. Even globalization and openness to the world conceal economic and financial interests and not a desire for fraternity. In this overcrowded world we are alone, and the individual prevails over the community dimension...

The Spirit of the Synods

By: Antonio Spadaro, SJ

The opening of the Synod on Synodality on October 9, 2021 invites the question of what it means to be Church today and its meaning in history. This question is also at the basis of the Synodal journey that the Italian Church is setting out on, and of those in progress or beginning in Germany, Australia and Ireland. Those who have followed the Assemblies of the Synod of Bishops in recent years have certainly seen how much diversity shapes the...

Faith on the Ward: Pastoral care and health workers

By: Alberto Cano Arenas, SJ

From health care ministry to pastoral care with health care workers The health professions, like so many other vocations, can be a privileged springboard and an open pathway to God. Doctors, psychologists, nurses and those involved in care reflect on the profound mystery of the human being who suffers and loves, resists and hopes, trusts and fights. They touch the very mystery of God, even if only for a moment. This is the basic thesis of this article, which we...
