‘Brown Madonna’

By

One of our demanding theology professors once entered the classroom and predicted: “One day you will return to the Ateneo with a big smile on your face after being told by a member of the Opus Dei that all Jesuits will go to Hell.”

Jesuits in our midst

By

There has been much comment on the way Pope Francis is opening windows in the Vatican. That he happens to be the first Jesuit pope, and who resembles Inquirer columnist Fr. Joaquin Bernas, SJ, has not escaped comment in social networking sites. One question that bugs me relates to the Jesuits’ vow of obedience to their superiors and the special vow of obedience to the Pope. When Pope Francis (the “White Pope”) met the Jesuit Father General (the “Black Pope”), the roles were reversed, so who obeys who now?

A real Atenean president

Regarding my Jan. 6 article “Reuter ‘baby’ at 88 on the ‘greatest teacher’ of his generation,” I wish to correct what I wrote: “there has never been a real Atenean president except one who was thrown out of Ateneo, out of Malacañang and into jail.”

Fr. James Reuter, SJ

By

Much has been said about the life and accomplishments of Fr. James Reuter. It is not easy to improve on or repeat in a better way what has already been said or written about him. Hence, let me just say a few words about him not as the public persona known to many Filipinos but simply as a Jesuit.

The price of autonomy

By

Universities in the modern world have been able to host some of the most pathbreaking advances in knowledge by providing an environment in which independent thinkers may pursue intellectual work without fear. But developing this capacity is not the easiest thing in the world. Universities need enormous amounts of resources that cannot be met by student fees alone.

A hill on the Mohawk River

By

Hundreds of gravestones in neat white rows cover the crest of a hill overlooking the Mohawk River in upstate New York. It may appear to be a military cemetery—the kind the United States leaves behind in all the countries in which it has fought—but the men buried here were not soldiers. They were nonviolent, peace-loving, and, it must be admitted, only a few looked very much like warriors.

Opportunities gone forever

By ,

Sixty-five years ago, from the deck of the freighter SS Willamette Victory, on the morning of July 30, 1946, I first set my eyes on the Philippines. The rigging of sunken ships protruding from the water of Manila Bay, and the fact that there was only one pier working attested to the fact that war [...]

The Ateneo Law School story

By

Today, June 6, 2011, the Ateneo Law School celebrates its Diamond Jubilee. Allow me, therefore, to “boast” a little. The Law School could have been much older than 75 had it not been for the vicissitudes of Jesuit history. Not that age is necessarily the measure of greatness, but grey hair can command some reverence. [...]
