The true dimension of dialogue

All wars, if they do not crush the opponent, end in negotiations. Which are a form of dialogue. But this is not what Pope Francis calls for. An Orthodox priest reacts to the CL flyer on peace.

United States: Discovering life

A theologian who met Fr. Giussani’s thought and then met a young boy, both of them shaking his faith and life. Leading to a proposal of a university course on Giussani. From the October issue of Traces.

When Fr. Carrón announced the centenary of the birth of Fr. Giussani, he proposed that we take a personal interest in the gesture for a single and essential reason: “To witness what Fr. Giussani has generated in us.” I was provoked to consider what differ...
