July / August 2018


The summer issue of Emmanuel focuses every year on the social dimension of the Gospel. Richard Gribble, CSC’s article offers insights into what it means to live counterculturally, in imitation of the prophets and Jesus. Next, I suggest you read Victor Parachin’s essay on Dom Helder Càmara, a prophetic figure of the Church in Brazil, and Peter Riga’s short reflection, “Poor at Heart.” You will also find articles commemorating two August anniversaries: the 150th anniversary of the death of Saint Peter Julian Eymard (August 1) and the 40th anniversary of the passing of Pope Paul VI (August 6). There is “A Poetry Retreat” for your meditation and prayer; also scripture reflections by Emmanuel’s former editor Paul Bernier, SSS. Enjoy!
