Pro Pope Francis 
Paul M. Zulehner / Tomáš Halík
Pro Pope Francis
Worldwide support from the People of the Church for Pope Francis and His Church Course

He is a breath of fresh air for the Roman Catholic Church: the Bishop of Rome, for which the »Cardinals have gone to the ends of the earth to get one« as he said during his first speech the central bal-cony of St. Peter's Basilica. He courageously continues the path of the Council. He reforms the Curia. He sees the action of the Spirit of God not only in Rome but in all continents. For this reason he con-tinuously calls for local Bishops´ Conferences. He also listens to those affected, for example remarried people who would like to model their lives according to the Gospel.

Kickt die Kirche aus dem Koma 
Jacqueline Straub
Kicks the Church Out of the Coma
A Young Woman Demands Reforms Now

For the most part, the Catholic Church doesn’t present itself as an image of flourishing life in Europe. Especially with the younger generation, it has great difficulty in finding a connection. The old church and young people – instead of a difficult relationship, this has often long become a total lack of rela-tionship. Some Church leaders seem to have come to terms with this. On the other hand, Jacqueline Straub doesn’t want to accept this. As a committed young Catholic woman, she demands that her Church not give up on her.

Was ist Glück? Nachher weiß man es 
Arnold Stadler
What is Happiness? We Know Afterwards
Picture of a Life

Arnold Stadler’s texts, especially his novels, have an autobiographical background. Perhaps this is why they touch on the questions that concern every human being – above all, those about personal identity and its roots. What is it that defines, shapes and moulds us, releasing us into life yet always remaining near us no matter where we go, and even if this is in the form of phantom pain? God is also present in his absence for Stadler. He has never let go of him, the man who wanted to become a priest. »God is more than what we can say about him«, Stadler knows, but this isn’t an excuse for neglecting to get an idea of him. Love is also such a big word. For Stadler, it isn’t a noun but a verb – an action word.

Suche Frieden 
Stefan Vesper (ed.)
Seek Peace
People Talk About a Longing That Never Stops

Outer and inner, social and personal peace is the basis on which life can thrive. Even if we have taken peace for granted during recent decades in our latitudes, the endangered, vulnerable and fleeting nature of this substance that we all need becomes increasingly clear. Peace doesn’t just simply exist and arise on its own. »Seek peace and pursue it!« was already called for in Psalm 34.

Erneuerung und Einheit 
Kurt Kardinal Koch
Renewal and Unity
A Plea for More Ecumenism

No Church can still afford to invest its strength in the separation from other Churches. Instead, the Word of God must be mutually proclaimed in a society that has become mostly foreign to God. Cardinal Koch therefore understands the view of the main questions that are controversially discussed between the separated Churches not as a full stop but as a colon: What has already been achieved between the Churches is an incentive for greater unity and the mutual confession to Christ.

Die Freude des Christen 
Walter Kardinal Kasper
The Christian`s Joy

What does »a closed heart« mean in an age of the enraged citizen? What does »friendship« mean in an age of Facebook? In his new book, Walter Kasper presents nothing less than a description of the Christian`s existence in the world of today – under the heading of joy. Some will be astonished to learn that »sadness« and a »closed heart« are considered the greatest temptation and gravest sin in the spiritual tradition. Kasper counters this tendency with joy, which is the fruit of the conversion and a gift of mercy according to the Biblical message.

Weiter denken 
Jürgen Erbacher
Thinking Further
Francis as the Pope and a Politician

Pope Francis cultivates not only a new style of executing his official duties, but also sets unaccustomed focal points. For him, the church doesn`t stand outside of the world but is a part of it – in both the good and the bad sense. His concern is that no one is excluded from the church or society. Everyone should be able to live a humane life in freedom and security.

Gott, der erneuert 
Annette Schavan
The God Who Renews
Experiences of Hope and Freedom

Annette Schavan brings the Bible and the present into a conversation with each other. In key texts of the Old and the New Testament, she discovers models for dealing with the questions that life continues to ask. Especially Jesus` message that God has once and for all embraced human beings changes how people see their own lives, their contemporaries and the world.

Ich träume von einer Kirche als Mutter und Hirtin 
Paul M. Zulehner
»I Dream of a Church That Is a Mother and a Shepherdess«
The New Pastoral Culture by Pope Francis

In just a few years, Pope Francis has profoundly changed the pastoral culture of the Catholic Church. Under the great sign of mercy, the Church should follow the Saviour as the saviour of the people. Or, as the Pope said: a field hospital to heal the wounds of the human beings and humanity. The accents shift: from the sin to the wound, from in the courtroom to the hospice, from moralising to healing, from the law to the face, from the ideologue to the shepherd.

Ich bin eine Mission 
George Augustin
I Am a Mission
Steps of Evangelization

The path of being a Christian is not retreating from the world but co-creating the world in the power of the Gospel. »I am a mission on this earth; this is the reason why I am here in this world… bringing light, blessing, enlivening, raising up, healing and freeing.« (Pope Francis) Starting with his Apostolic Exhortation »Evangelii Gaudium«, Francis has always given new impetus on bringing the proclamation of the Gospel into our contemporary society. How has our world changed?
