This Week


Money game

The intense debate over the role of money in America’s troubled democracy is the subject of Jodie Foster’s new movie, as well as a documentary, and the book Dark Money by Jane Mayer. Gerald Schmitz reviews.


Media firestorm

When Pope Francis suddenly agreed, during a recent off-the-cuff chat with nuns gathered in Rome, to explore the idea of ordaining women as deacons, he touched off what has by now become a typical Francis-like media storm, writes David Gibson.


Lived wisdom
