In Memoriam John Wilkins

Bernard Treacy, O.P., remembers the contribution John Wilkins (who died on 26 April) made during his 21 years as editor of The Tablet.

Is There a Synodal Spirituality?

Thomas O’Loughlin searches the ‘signs of the times’ for a spirituality which would energise the synodal path. Key aspects would be an awareness of being part of a world Church, blessing God in the ordinary, and engaging with the world. Equally important will be to think ecumenically and to have a Baptism-centred vision.

The Love of God

Patrick Masterson reflects both philosophically and theologically on all aspects of love, concluding that ‘paradoxically, one’s unselfish love of the intrinsic goodness and value of one’s beloved is often brought to its keenest explicit awareness only upon her death. One still affirms “I love you” and not just “I loved you.” My love of the intrinsic goodness of my beloved as an abiding personal reality can provide me with an interiorized existential intimation of God’s infinite goodness.’

Praying for Change

The Our Father and the Quest for Justice

Kevin Hargaden starts from the premise that praying changes the person who prays. The Our Father, thus, sensitizes us to God’s will for the advancement of Kingdom values in the world and spurs us to play our part in that advancement. This article is based on a Monday Conversation which the Director of the Jesuit Centre for Faith and Justice facilitated in St Dominic’s Retreat House, Cork.

The Virus of Non-employment

Angus Sibley shows how the development of the ‘gig’ economy, of workers being classified as independent contractors, needs to be recognized as a fiction – as courts in some countries are willing to do. He concludes: ‘Orthodox economics works on the premise that we would rather be happy shoppers than happy workers. Too many of us work miserably so that the rest of us may consume wastefully. How can this make sense, when we are ruining our environment by overconsumption?’

The Festal Shout in Hell

Pat Collins, C.M., takes up the themes in the ‘Harrowing of Hell’, and finds in it great symbolic relevance those for whose lives are rendered hellish by scruples or neuroses.
