Osvaldo Pol: The Poetic Word has Dwellings of Flesh

By: Jorge Mario Bergoglio, SJ

Jesuit Father Osvaldo Pol, lifetime student and now professor, wrote almost all of these sonnets here in his home. Some have already been published, others appear for the first time. The Faculties of Philosophy and Theology are pleased to launch his book of sonnets. In poetic language he expresses theological wisdom, the fruit most appreciated by the Society of Jesus in its academic endeavors. It may seem paradoxical that a poet speaks of exiles from the earth in the language...

Siberia: One country, many peoples

By: Vladimir Pachkov, SJ

If Russia is a country of extremes, Siberia is so to a greater extent. In Europe, Siberia is a byword for the freezing cold, but not everyone knows that much of Siberia is tropically hot in the summer. Siberia is a part of the world rich in fossil fuels, which, while helping to keep the global economy alive, also greatly contributes to pollution and climate change. At the same time, Siberia’s woodlands, along with its tropical forests, are the lungs...

Pope Francis Speaks With Muslims: The trip to Iraq in context

By: Felix Körner, SJ

The significance, on a theological level, of Pope Francis’ trip to Iraq in March 2021 emerges clearly only when placed in the larger theological, historical and chronological context.

That is a considerably larger number than, say,...

The Urgency of Universal Access to the Covid-19 Vaccine

By: Fernando de la Iglesia Viguiristi SJ

Over the past year, the Covid-19 pandemic has put our health at risk, brought the global economy virtually to a standstill and disrupted our lives in ways we never imagined. The magnitude of the global catastrophe prompted the World Health Organization (WHO) to commission an independent panel of experts to assess the situation. The panel was chaired by former New Zealand Prime Minister Helen Clark and former Liberian President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf.[1] The concluding report states that the current situation...

Crisis in the Democratic Republic of Congo

By: Camille Mukoso, SJ

For almost 25 years, the war in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) has continued to make headlines for the large number of civilian victims and refugees. Today, the province of North Kivu has become the powder keg of Central Africa, trapped by a regional system of conflicts that has made Congo “the rape capital of the world.”[1] The murders of human rights activists, journalists and opinion makers and, more recently, of Italian ambassador Luca Attanasio, are just some examples...

Turkmenistan

By: Vladimir Pachkov, SJ

Turkmenistan is one of the most mysterious countries in the world. The reason is simple: it is not easily accessible to outsiders. Although the history of civilization in the region of present-day Turkmenistan is almost as old as that of the agricultural centers of the Middle East, the Turkmen tribes – who would later come together to form the Turkmen people – began to spread here only between the 11th and 12th centuries. Between the 17th and 19th centuries, Iran...
