A Practical Spirituality of Civic Life

April 11, 2016

Tom Roberts

Editor-At-Large, National Catholic Reporter

An overarching theme in the church since Vatican II is the struggle that has existed between the idea of faith as a tick list of orthodoxy statements within a community tightly defined by clear borders and a more pastoral notion of a community on the move, a community in which faith is less dependent on rules and the absolute adherence to dogma in all its details than on the relational aspects. Francis is a robust example of the latter, urging the community to encounter the other, especially those on the margins, and not to be afraid of making mistakes. He emphasizes that the nature of God is mercy and has been highly critical repeatedly of "doctors of the law." He makes the case quite eloquently and persuasively for the change that is underway.

A Discerning Faith:  Conversation with the Women of Magnificat House of Discernment

Jan. 21, 2016

Susan Mary Weishar, Ph.D.

Fellow and Migration Specialist at the Jesuit Social Research Institute, Loyola University New Orleans

In this Jubilee Year of Mercy, Pope Francis has asked that we open our hearts to those marginalized by fear and indifference, so they can "feel the warmth of our presence, our friendship, and our fraternity." One way that the Jesuit Social Research Institute at Loyola has been trying to live out  this call for mercy is by organizing Catholic Teach-Ins on Migration, where members of a Catholic parish or school meet, listen to, and pray with undocumented immigrant members of the community. At the January 21 LIM webinar, JSRI Migration Specialist Sue Weishar will discuss how to organize a Catholic Teach-In on Migration in your faith community and the powerful experiences of compassion and conversion she has witnessed at these encounters.
