This Week


Multifaith challenges

Living in a multifaith world is a real-life challenge for Muslim women who wear a niqab. Angus Reid Institute found that only one in three Canadians support a person wearing the niqab. The same poll found that 46 per cent of Canadians view Islam unfavourably, as opposed to 33 per cent who have a generally favourable view.


Dangerous subject

Matt Eisenbrandt, the author of a new book about the men who killed Archbishop Oscar Romero while celebrating mass 37 years ago, says the subject is still dangerous to talk about.


Culture of resistance

Despite four years of Pope Francis’ calls to break down walls erected out of fear and ivory towers built on arrogance, Irish abuse survivor Marie Collins said a kind of enclave mentality can still be found in some corners of the Curia.
