Weeks in Review – July 22-August 17, 2013

Weeks in Review

Summertime scatters the staff of TJP to the winds, and these last few weeks have been no exception. In addition to commemorating the feast of St. Ignatius (with the Pope), we’ve been covering World Youth Day in Brazil, going on retreats back home, and traveling all over to celebrate the fact that we have a whole bunch of newly-minted Jesuits.

But even while on the road, our contributors have kept checking in and it’s been a busy few weeks at TJP. In case you’ve missed it, here’s some of what we’ve been discussing, watching, and thinking about recently.

What We’ve Seen on the Web

Worth Thinking About

  • Joe Simmons doesn’t know much about psychology, but he does know that “No amount of text messages, activities, or work can bring us to the reality of ourselves; for that we need quiet.  We need that cool inky silence where what dreams may come.”

  • What makes a religious writer? And when someone claims not to be one, should we believe them? Tim O’Brien wants to know if you have any thoughts.

  • With all due respect, Jeff Sullivan thinks we have a shortage of “badass priests.” Or at least he thinks you should read up on a few iconic clerics of film.
