This Week


Lobbying for Vatican II

At age 92, Bishop Remi De Roo is “trying to sound a wakeup call to all believers — Christian or non-Christian alike — to reclaim that vision of Pope John XXIII and to enter into the renewed program to which Pope Francis invites us and which he has illustrated by his way of life.”


Troubling assumptions

The new movie Me Before You “overflows with dehumanizing stereotypes about disability, from implications that disabled people are things no more active than houseplants, to assumptions that disability is a fate worse than death.”


Assisted dying debate

The missed June 6 deadline to create new legislation on assisted death is the result of a seemingly widespread indifference to the rule of law, writes law professor Mary J Shariff.
