‘A scientist leaning over her computer pondering experimental results; an artist poised, brush in hand, at his canvas; a woman sitting in prayer making the Spiritual Exercises: what do these three have in common?’ Rob Marsh SJ explores what it means to ‘imagine faithfully’, as the scientist, the artist and the woman in prayer are all doing. If imagination is the mediator between idea and reality, how does it relate to faith?
This Oscar-nominated film's inter-linked storylines, based on real events, highlight a question: is 'doing justice' the same as 'being just'?
Nicholas King SJ reacted with surprise and welcome to the unprecedented election of a Jesuit pope.
