Family is ideally the cradle of divine love into which we are born as humans.

Following closely on the closing of the 2015 Synod on the Family and just before the start of the Holy Year of Mercy, we report on the statements and recommendations produced by the Synod and look forward with hope to the Holy Year.

Called to Action – August 2014

The August 2014 issue of Theologika Digest takes the theme of vocation as a sacred calling from God, a “worthy dream”, as its focus. The vocations of hospital chaplain, consecrated member of a religious community, student of arts and sciences, composer, and prophet of social justice are offered as examples of this divine call.
