Our Series

Most of the posts to Ibo et Non Redibo are stand-alone pieces, but we sometimes run short series. Here are our series to date:

Devotions (23 April – 2 May 2014)
St. Ignatius of Loyola wrote, “We ought to praise not only the building and adornment of churches, but also the images and veneration of them according to what they represent. We should show our esteem for the relics of the saints by venerating them and praying to the saints. We should praise visits to Station Churches, pilgrimages, indulgences, jubilees, crusade insults, and the lighting of candles in churches.” For some, these devotions are the spiritual life-blood of the believing Church; for others they may seem simplistic or quaint. But in the spirit of our founder, we, too, seek to explore and understand the powerful role of devotions in the Church today.
Aboriginal Justice (11–13 December 2013)
On the calender of the Catholic Church, the twelfth of December is the feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe. Given her importance to all native peoples around the world, some of our Ibo contributors have decided to launch a two-part series on Aboriginal justice.
What are the ways Christ promised to be with us? (29 November – 6 December 2013)
It occurred to the editors of Ibo that there was one basic question, so fundamental to the Christian life, that it demanded to be explored for greater profit of both ourselves and our faithful readers. Quite simply, the question was this: What are the ways Christ promised to be with us? Unless we know the primary ways of encountering the living God in the bracing reality of our lives, the faith risks becoming an abstraction at best, an ideology at worst. There are four privileged ways we know of in which Christ manifests himself to his people in the here-and-now:
Ignatian Spirituality (1–12 April 2013)
With the election of Pope Francis as the Bishop of Rome, questions about Jesuits and Ignatian spirituality surfaced in both religious and secular circles. In light of this, the contributors of Ibo et Non Redibo decided to launch a blog series on Ignatian spirituality. In six blog entries introduced some key principles by which Jesuits live, and explained how these insights may be useful to the Church and to the world.

The Second Vatican Council After Fifty Years (9–14 October 2012)
A ressourcement of the Council of ressourcement. On the fiftieth anniversary of the opening of the Second Vatican Council, and the beginning of the Year of Faith, we offered an essay on each of the Council's dogmatic constitutions.

Impressions from Venezuela (29 May – 30 July 2012)
Dispatches from Adam Hincks, S.J., during his summer in Venezuela.

Reflections on Humanae Vitae (21–25 July 2012)
The papal encyclical Humanae Vitae has been both staunchly defended and heavily criticized. We provide some reflections on this document.

Happiness on Trial (30 March – 12 April)
Artur Suski, S.J., distils his investigation of the philosophy of happiness into an accessible, two part essay.
