INTRODUCING
 "ALL IN THE FAMILY"! 
Meet  Bridget, 
Fr. Eric Oland's, s.j. sister living in New Brunswick!
 
I'm Bridget, a busy mom who is trying to raise my kids to be adventurous eaters who appreciate good food. 
But I also want my kids to understand their connection to the earth, where our food comes from and that not all food is created equal when it comes to protecting the environment. 
So I make food that is healthy for my family, and the environment. To visit

A Big Heart Open to God
The exclusive interview with Pope Francis

Father Spadaro met the pope at the Vatican in the pope's apartments in the Casa Santa Marta, where he has chosen to live since his election. Father Spadaro begins his account of the interview with a description of the pope's living quarters.

The setting is simple, austere. The workspace occupied by the desk is small. I am impressed not only by the simplicity of the furniture, but also by the objects in the room. There are only a few. These include an icon of St. Francis, a statue of Our Lady of LujŠn, patron saint of Argentina, a crucifix and a statue of St. Joseph sleeping. The spirituality of Jorge Mario Bergoglio is not made of "harmonized energies," as he would call them, but of human faces: Christ, St. Francis, St. Joseph and Mary. read more

Teaching poverty, teaching transparency in our business schools
 
Poverty is a topic not often discussed and tackled in business schools. On the one hand, it is very clear in business ethics that as institutions, we must practice what we preach, and clearly presents the basis for transparency. On the other hand, the challenge today is in our willingness to really teach poverty in our schools of business, how poverty comes about in a neo-liberal economy, or when this economy has its ups and downs and the poor cannot cope or cannot recover.read more
