Nada Te Turbe

by Sharon Holland, IHM -- LCWR Past President

We Are Called to End Family Detention -- Now!

by Kathleen Erickson, RSM

It seems normal in so many ways, sitting on a park bench. It’s a nice day and children and a few women play on a freshly-turfed soccer area. The woman seated beside me is from Honduras. She tells me about going to her mom’s house after college classes one day. Her mom had been contacted by gang members for extortion money and had refused to pay. This daughter got to her mom’s house as the bodies of her brother, mother, and wounded sister were being carried out of the house on stretchers. She’s not interested in soccer.

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.
