COP 21: Progress on Climate Change -- Finally

LCWR Resolutions to Action - Winter 2016
by Joan Brown, OSF

Ursula’s face glistens like the sun shining upon Pacific Ocean waves as they lap upon an island beach that was her beloved home. Her home is now a memory. She is a women leader among the 3,500 people of her Cartaret island nation. They are among the first climate refugees. And, she is one of our sisters.

Winter 2016: Living in Communion

$5.00

This issue of Occasional Papers explores the period in religious life as one rich with potential for deep transformation. Although one could interpret the difficult changes being experienced within religious institutes today as a sign that this way of life is dying, these deep changes may also be seen as a way of preparing religious congregations for significant transformation. The articles in this issue provide assistance to religious with effectively navigating this period marked by large amounts of loss, relinquishment, and death. Such losses can become obstacles to the ability to re-imagine religious life for these times and the times ahead.

Summer 2015: Exploring the Great Deep

$5.00

The focus of the Summer 2015 issue  of Occasional Papers springs from a concept put forward by Jesuit superior general, Fr. Adolfo Nicolás, SJ. While addressing those working in Jesuit higher education, Fr. Nicolás noted a phenomenon he named the “globalization of superficiality” that has risen due to our new capacities to access information; publish our opinions; be exposed to multiple options, values, and visions of life; and become “friends” with mere acquaintances or total strangers on social networks. These realities, he says, can lead us away from the painstaking work of serious, critical thinking; of forming communities of dialogue in search of truth and understanding; and of building true and meaningful relationships. To counter this globalization of superficiality, Fr. Nicolás speaks of a strong need to promote depth of thought, as well as imagination and creativity.
