Pope Francis reaffirms the church’s stance against all forms of abuse against women in the encyclical Amoris Laetitia: “we must…see in the women’s movement the working of the Spirit for a clearer recognition of the dignity and rights of women” (54). The Jesuit Refugee Service (JRS) works to improve the safety and status of women and girls in some of the most difficult living environments in the world.
John Guiney SJ from the Irish Jesuit Missions office visited fellow Jesuits and Jesuit works in the Far East this month – China and South East Asia. Over 125 Irish Jesuits have gone there since 1925. There now remains 6 Jesuits in Hong Kong; 2 in Japan; 1 in Singapore; and 1 in Cambodia.
Bridging the information gap
In Monze, Zambia, the vision of Chikuni Community Radio Station is to enable the community of Chikuni to be fully developed in all aspects of human life.
In a groundbreaking move with the help from the Irish Jesuit Missions and other organisations, Chikuni Parish raised over £100,000 to set up and operate the first radio station run by the Batonga people for the Batonga people.
