In June 2015, the French monthly Esprit published an issue on: "François, a Jesuit Pope."
The issue includes three articles of special interest for the readers of eRenlai:
- Luce Giard offers us a portrait of Teilhard, linking the prophetic version of the thinker to the transformations brought in the Chuch by the present pontificate.
- Benoit Vermander traces back the history of the second Jesuit mission in China, thus giving us glimpses on the institutional context of which Teilhard was part.
- Jin lu, a popular contributor of eRenlai, brings together the mystique of michel de Certeau with the spirit of Pope Francis.
Taken as a whole, this issue by Esprit and the documentary brought forward by eRenlai testify to the resilience of a spiritual and intellectual tradition that is taking a new meaning in view of the present global challenges.
