BOOK | Western Jesuit Scholars in India: Tracing Their Paths, Reassessing Their Goals | Francis X Clooney SJ
While the announcement of the opening of the Vatican Archives of Pope Pius XII (1939-1958) was welcome by researchers, what has remained in focus is a debate regarding the role of the Pope and the Holocaust. However, the Archives should reveal a much broader narrative as the period of this papacy was also at the centre of a shifting global Christianity and its rapid indigenisation.
Much before the announcement of Pope Francis to canonise Oscar Romero a Saint of the Catholic Church, the people of Latin America had already begun to venerate their San Romero, ever since his martyrdom on 24 March 1980. His witness to the gospel message that informed a faith in favour of the poor is as relevant to us today as it was in his own lifetime.
