This Week


Democracy under threat

After watching the U.S. elect Donald Trump, the Law and Justice Party of Poland undermine that country’s judiciary and constitution, and British apprehension about immigration lead to Brexit, Ukrainian Greco-Catholic bishop of Paris Borys Gudziak warns that when we give up on democracy, we give in to fear.


Survivors

Residential school survivors recalled some painful memories and spoke of the steps they have taken toward healing at a public event held Sept. 28 at the Frances Morrison Library in Saskatoon.


Cafeteria Catholics

“The truth is, all Catholics are cafeteria Catholics,” writes Thomas Reese, SJ. “Conservative Catholics were quite willing to ignore John Paul’s and Benedict’s strong statements on justice and peace, and progressive Catholics are happy to ignore Francis’ opposition to women priests.”
