When it comes to the private notes of a pontiff, the world usually has to wait until they’ve died to have access to them, but Pope Francis this week made some of his personal notes public.
The abuse occurring within women’s religious orders deserves more attention from the media and must be remedied, said an influential Jesuit journal.
Using religion to prop up an exaggerated sense of nationalism perverts healthy patriotism in its attempts to solidify national identity by excluding some members of society, said an essay in an influential Jesuit journal.
Pope Francis told Jesuits in Thailand he was “scandalized” by some of the anti-migrant rhetoric he hears in Europe, and he is convinced people are being manipulated into thinking the only way they can preserve their lifestyles is by building walls.
Pope Francis has endorsed a controversial view of the United States presented in two articles in a prominent Jesuit journal. Like them or not, if you want to understand the pope’s relationship with America, you need to read them.
While his responsibilities are greater and his prayer list longer, Pope Francis said he’s basically the same person he was before he was elected in 2013, so he still goes to confession every two weeks.
