  • Gonzaga Students Join Governor O'Malley to Lobby Against the Death Penalty
    penalty something we have been learning about the past few weeks in ethics class We also had the opportunity to view the judiciary hearing on the bill advocating for repealing of the death penalty When arrived we were directed towards the Governor s office where through a fortunate turn of events we were able to take pictures with the Governor but even more importantly sit and talk with him for almost an hour while he ate lunch O Malley a Gonzaga grad knew a lot of what we were being taught about concerning the death penalty and explained how the same lessons we were learning had pushed him towards being against the death penalty The Governor also walked us through what his recent State of the State address which he informed us was heavily based on the teachings of Jesus in the twenty fifth chapter of Matthew s Gospel Overall our meeting with the Governor was very laid back and casual and for many of us brought some humanity to the politics we see so often on the news Despite all this the most incredible part of the day at least for myself was yet to come The day before my teacher had informed me that if I would like to I might have the opportunity to testify in front of a few people on my opinion on the death penalty It didn t hit me until later that evening that what Ms Murphy was referring to was actually going to be either the state senate or judiciary I was incredibly nervous but knew that it Matt Gannon shaking Governor O Malley s hand was a once in a lifetime opportunity to speak up for something I believed in We sat watching the Governor Lieutenant Governor Archbishop Lori and many other officials speak and finally it was my turn to take a seat I had a small speech prepared but when it came my turn to speak I spoke from the heart of how I d been raised and what Ms Murphy my ethics teacher had taught me I spoke about how a system with such inequalities could never be called justice and questioned how we could support a culture where the common sense not to kill is instilled in us from a young age but still use a legalized form of murder as retribution The entire day was a great experience and the feeling of standing up in a real way against something like the death penalty couldn t be beat Facebook 35 Google 141 Linkedin 0 Twitter 176 Tags Death Penalty Gonzaga College High School http ignatiansolidarity net wp content uploads 2013 03 matt gannon jpg 3139 3996 Christopher Kerr http ignatiansolidarity net wp content uploads 2013 04 ISN Color Transparent Large png Christopher Kerr 2013 03 11 14 10 32 2013 03 11 14 10 32 Gonzaga Students Join Governor O Malley to Lobby Against the Death Penalty You might also like Maryland Repeal of Death Penalty

  • The Less Familiar Story: Padre Cortina | Ignatian Solidarity Network
    all those who had been killed at the UCA listed including his name He pulled his Jeep over to the side of the road and checked himself to make sure he was still alive before continuing his journey into the city I was lucky to get to know Padre in 2003 He had lunch with our group in Omaha before our trip as he was at graduation to receive an honorary doctorate from the university and to bless the floors of a residence hall that were going to house the inaugural Cortina Community the following academic year We also go to spend time with him in Guarjila attending a Mass over which he presided But I was also lucky enough that I got to spend several hours with him later that summer when he returned to Creighton for a reunion with his classmates with whom he had studied in the United States during his Jesuit formation Two months after I had stood in the Rose Garden at the UCA and wept I sat in the Jesuit Gardens at Creighton with one of the surviving community members of the UCA community It was hard not to start picturing the lives of the Jesuits who were molding and shaping me through my time at Creighton sprawled across the lawn the comparison needed no verbal acknowledgement We talked for several hours about a variety of things but mostly I listened to Padre share stories from El Salvador most of them from during the war and many of them about his brother Jesuits So I immediately asked Fabio if he had known Fr Cortina And not only had he he then shared a story that I had heard Cortina tell on several occasions As a professor of engineering Cortina still felt compelled to talk about social justice in his class or politics as some of his students saw it One day several complained to Cortina that they felt they weren t learning enough about engineering because he spent so much time on social issues So he decided to give them what they were asking for The next day he gave them a quiz over all the engineering material they should have memorized by that point in the semester No one did particularly well and they begged him to go back to talking about politics Which he did I can only guess whether or not Padre told them why he talked so much about politics but his explanation to me made perfect sense students can read the formulas in a book but they can t read about what s really happening in their country in a book Fr Cortina passed away in 2005 several weeks after suffering a stroke His legacy lives on in his students who learned about the reality of their country and in Pro Búsqueda the organization he founded to help reunite families who had been torn apart during the war by the military who routinely took the children of those deemed

  • Ellacuría: Are We Really Dead?
    be simultaneously somewhat prophetic and paradoxical the United States is in a much worse situation than Latin America Because the United States has a solution but in my opinion it is a bad solution both for them and for the world in general Ignacio Ellacuría S J What is that solution The capitalist market system we live in and the democracy that governs it and vice versa Why is that a bad solution both for us and for the world in general Ellacuría s reply It can t be universalized and so is not a solution for the whole human family It is therefore immoral It can t be universalized because there aren t enough resources on this planet for everyone to live as the U S the European Union or even the Asian Tigers do This then requires tragic choices about who will live and who will die especially what percentage of the population living in poverty is going to survive Who will make those decisions if they re not to be left to the heartlessness of the market And let me add The way those resources are being exploited now is changing the global climate in dangerous destructive ways The system is clearly functioning to make the rich richer the middle class and the poor poorer the statistics are there for those willing to look honestly The politicians whose policies will make the life and death decisions Ellacuría referred to are indentured to the wealthy who finance their campaigns More and more people realize that this assessment is not only prophetic and paradoxical it is disturbingly true More and more students know that the current societal status quo does not promise them a future Meanwhile our politicians and media preach the gospel of economic growth through consumption I know your works that you have the reputation of being alive but you are dead More and more of us need to stand up and say this out loud But can we find real life What are the emerging alternatives to this system Are we teaching and studying them Facebook 210 Google 0 Linkedin 0 Twitter 210 Tags Ignacio Ellacuria SJ http ignatiansolidarity net wp content uploads 2014 11 Screen Shot 2014 11 18 at 3 35 39 PM png 250 250 James Hug S J http ignatiansolidarity net wp content uploads 2013 04 ISN Color Transparent Large png James Hug S J 2014 11 18 15 37 08 2014 12 11 13 46 46 Ellacuría Are We Really Dead You might also like Here in El Salvador Life is Worthless JustLent March 7th Blood Ink The Jesuit Martyrs Prophetic Work for Justice 3 replies José Mulligan says November 20 2014 at 5 30 pm Very important and challenging reflection Jim If I can sneak in an ad here readers may find useful some videos of my recent talks on the Jesuit martyrs which can be found at YouTube com on my channel josephmulligan1 Peace Joe Mulligan SJ Managua Reply
