Ignatian Spirituality And The Life Of The Lawyer: Finding God In All Things – Even In The Ordinary Practice Of The Law, Gregory A. Kalscheur S.J. Dec 2011

Ignatian Spirituality And The Life Of The Lawyer: Finding God In All Things – Even In The Ordinary Practice Of The Law, Gregory A. Kalscheur S.J.

Gregory A. Kalscheur, S.J.

All of us know lawyers who seem unhappy, unfree, directionless, and dis-integrated, who seem to be following paths they haven’t consciously chosen, leading them to places they would never have chosen to go, seemingly locked in lives they haven’t freely chosen to live. Some would characterize this reality as a manifestation of a spiritual crisis, a crisis of meaning and value in the law, rooted in the difficulty lawyers have integrating the practice of the law into the whole of their lives. This article argues that the spirituality flowing from the life of Ignatius of Loyola, the founder ...


Christian Scripture And American Scripture: An Instructive Analogy?, Gregory A. Kalscheur S.J. Dec 2011

Christian Scripture And American Scripture: An Instructive Analogy?, Gregory A. Kalscheur S.J.

Gregory A. Kalscheur, S.J.

This Review Essay examines the analogy between biblical interpretation and constitutional interpretation drawn by the eminent Yale church historian Jaroslav Pelikan in his provocative book, Interpreting the Bible and the Constitution. Part I of the Essay focuses on Pelikan’s discussion of the differences and analogies between the Bible and the Constitution that provide the foundation for methodological comparison. Part II of the Essay examines Pelikan’s effort to draw on the work of 19th-century theologian John Henry Newman in order to explore the fundamental problem of the relation between the authority of the original text and the authority of ...


Catholics In Public Life: Judges, Legislators, And Voters, Gregory A. Kalscheur S.J. Dec 2011

Catholics In Public Life: Judges, Legislators, And Voters, Gregory A. Kalscheur S.J.

Gregory A. Kalscheur, S.J.

Does the desire to avoid culpable cooperation in moral evil make the conscientious Catholic judge unfit for judicial service in a constitutional system that will inevitably bring before the judge cases that implicate a host of issues as to which the Church offers moral teaching? Confused answers to this question reflect a larger confusion which often accompanies contemporary discussion of questions related to Catholic participation in public life. The confusion stems in large part from a failure to recognize that Catholics participate in public life in different ways that give them different sorts of public roles. This Essay tries to ...


Conscience And Citizenship: The Primacy Of Conscience For Catholics In Public Life, Gregory A. Kalscheur S.J. Dec 2011

Conscience And Citizenship: The Primacy Of Conscience For Catholics In Public Life, Gregory A. Kalscheur S.J.

Gregory A. Kalscheur, S.J.

In their statement, Forming Consciences for Faithful Citizenship, the U.S. Catholic bishops acknowledge that “the responsibility to make choices in political life rests with each individual in the light of a properly formed conscience.” This essay argues that, in light of this responsibility, it is important to affirm a commitment to the primacy of conscience as that idea has been understood in the Catholic tradition. If we really expect voters and public officials to make responsible, conscientious decisions about matters of public policy, we should not speak in ways that suggest that the proper formation of conscience is simply ...

Paul Fitzgerald, S.J. Engages With The Question: What Contribution Have The Jesuits Made To The American Church?, Paul J. Fitzgerald S.J., Alfred Benney

Rev. Paul J. Fitzgerald, S.J.

What contribution have the Jesuits made to the American Church? Jesuit Paul Fitzgerald discusses what he believes is the greatest gift of Jesuits to America, which is the ability to see God in every moment and every aspect of life in the light of Ignatius. He refers to this view of life as "hopeful realism" and Catholics ability to see the world as it is, but also in union with the divine. Fitzgerald also discusses the contribution that Jesuit Education has given to American Catholics, and how this has created an educated Church unlike ever before.

Ethics As Transformative Love: The Moral World Of Etty Hillesum, Francis T. Hannafey S.J. Dec 2011

Ethics As Transformative Love: The Moral World Of Etty Hillesum, Francis T. Hannafey S.J.

Rev. Francis T. Hannafey, S.J.

Etty Hillesum, a Dutch Jew who died at Auschwitz at the age of twenty-nine, left behind a diary and letters written during the last two years of her life. In An Interrupted Life and Letters from Westerbork, Hillesum tells a deeply moving story of religious experience, evil and suffering, spiritual growth, and interior and exterior moral transformation. While current scholarship on Hillesum focuses almost entirely on her personal life and religious journey, this essay examines the moral vision that emerges in her writings. Hillesum's diaries and letters present an engaging vision of the moral life--one that points with clarity ...

Differences Between The Water Baptism And The Moment Of Receiving The Holy Spirit, Caleb Otniel Traian Nechifor Dec 2011

Differences Between The Water Baptism And The Moment Of Receiving The Holy Spirit, Caleb Otniel Traian Nechifor

Caleb Otniel Traian Nechifor

From the New Testamental’s point of view, there are some differences between the time of the water baptism and the time of receiving the Holy Spirit. Even if chronologically the two acts can be very close, we can always make a clear temporal distinction between them. Using the most relevant passages from Acts, this article intends to prove that in all cases the baptism with the Holy Spirit was a distinct experience from the water baptism. The article also describes tangentially the receiving of the Holy Spirit.

Gender And Inclusive Growth, Professor Vibhuti Patel Nov 2011

Gender And Inclusive Growth, Professor Vibhuti Patel

Professor Vibhuti Patel

In spite of claim of ‘gender inclusive growth’ by the Eleventh Five Year Plan (2007-2012), the mass of Indian women have not only been bypassed but also marginalised in the growth process. Real wages of mass of women have declined. Due to withdrawal of the state from social sector, women’s work burden in unpaid care economy (cooking, cleaning, nursing, collecting fuel-fodder-water, etc.) has increased manyfold. Subordinate status of women manifests in declining child sex ratio i.e., ‘missing girls phenomenon’, deteriorating reproductive and child health, feminisation of poverty, increased violence against women, enhanced mortality and morbidity among girls and ...


Implicaţiile Formei Botezului În Contextul Eclesial, Caleb Otniel Traian Nechifor Nov 2011

Implicaţiile Formei Botezului În Contextul Eclesial, Caleb Otniel Traian Nechifor

Caleb Otniel Traian Nechifor

Even though the water baptism is unanimous accepted in all religious denominations as an act which offers the quality of a church member, however, not every church officiates it in the same manner. Because is accepted by all the religious denominations, we can ask if a religious group accepts the baptism officiated by another religious group and in what conditions this thing may happen. Or, which churches accept the baptism officiated by churches with a different doctrine? Which are the immediate connotations of the baby’s baptism and of the adult’s baptism? What does imply the baby’s baptism ...
