  • Catholicism and Organizational Development: A Case Study on the
           Communication of Catholic Mission and Identity

    • Authors: Kendra Knight Ph.D. et al.
      Abstract: Don Martin, Kendra Knight, and Scott Kelley explore the results of the Catholic Identity Mission Assessment survey as it relates to DePaul University. This survey was created by the Association of Catholic Colleges and Universities as a way of gauging how effectively Catholic educational institutions are conveying their Catholic identity to their students and other stakeholders. At DePaul, the investigation examined how well graduating seniors “comprehend and articulate principles from the Catholic intellectual tradition and Catholic social teaching.” Martin, Knight, and Kelley cite specific curricular and cocurricular areas that would help seniors establish this Catholic worldview and point out areas in which the communication of Catholic identity needs to be bolstered. They also explore the challenges of communicating that identity, not least of which is the generational interest and existing generational worldview of millennials and Generation Z and the need to compete with secular educational institutions. The authors explain the survey’s method and results. The survey found that “students’ confidence in their ability to articulate dimensions of the Vincentian mission is greater than their confidence in their ability to communicate dimensions of the Catholic intellectual tradition,” which “suggests a need for organizational development.” The article outlines steps for that.

  • The Ecological Meaning of the Presence of God in Elizabeth Ann Seton’s
           Reflections and Translations Based on Elizabeth Bayley Seton: Collected
           Writings Volumes 3a & 3b

    • Authors: Sung-Hae Kim S.C.
      Abstract: In her third interpretation of Elizabeth Seton’s spirituality within the framework of ecological theology, Sun Hae Kim examines volumes 3a and 3b of Elizabeth’s writings. These volumes cover Elizabeth’s entire life. The presence of God was “the mystery that not only sustained her throughout her life but also united her vision of the entire universe of natural creation and humanity into one.” Kim also puts Elizabeth’s views of creation, humanity, suffering, and death within the context of three ecological theologians: Hildegard of Bingen, Sallie McFague, and Elizabeth A. Johnson. According to Elizabeth, God’s presence “consecrates every part of the universe”; caring for the earth—which is God’s body according to Johnson—is, as Kim says, “an act of obedience to the Creator, who wants all life to flourish.” At the end of time, Elizabeth looked to “the complete transformation of the earth,” which for her involved our salvation and “the glory of the natural world.” Death and suffering, as a part of the natural world, are a part of ecology in which God is present as well. Moreover, “suffering is a mystery that humbles and unites both humans and non-human living beings of the earth.”

  • Translating Ozanam: French Translation Students Explore a Foundational
           Vincentian Thinker’s Student Days

    • Authors: Clara Orban Ph.D.
      Abstract: DePaul University professor of French Clara Orban explains what students learn in the process of translating Frédéric Ozanam’s letters as part of their senior project in her translation course. A new translation of the letters is being prepared for publication by staff of the Vincentian Studies Institute; student translations assist in this effort. Many of the letters the students prepare were written by Ozanam between the ages of eighteen and twenty-five and provide them with a window into his student life. As such, they also allow the students to better relate to a key figure within the history of the Vincentian mission. Some preliminary translations are included with the article.

  • Elizabeth Bayley Seton: “My Heart Stirred for the Word of God”

    • Authors: Judith Metz S.C.
      Abstract: This article explores the origin and depth of devotion to the Word of God that permeated Elizabeth Bayley Seton’s life and informed her spirituality. The future saint’s early years were suffused with scripture at home and in Anglican/Episcopal services she attended. The deep devotion this engendered was enhanced by her love for poetry, prose, and song. Through her early adult life she was spiritually nourished by the cadences of scripture and the hymns that filled liturgical celebrations. During a brief hiatus during her early adult years, Elizabeth broadened her scope to embrace a variety of intellectual influences. However, her devotion to scripture rekindled as deep family crises engulfed her. The comfort and strength she gained through reliance on her Bible assisted her in navigating enormous changes in her religious, economic, and social circumstances. At the time she converted to Catholicism, the ethos of the U. S. Catholic Church encouraged her to continue this focus. In addition to acquiring her own Catholic edition of the Bible, she deepened her immersion in the scriptures as evidenced by the numerous reflections, prayers, verses, and letters she wrote.

  • Pandemic, Poverty, and Power: Biosocial Ethics of Global Solidarity for

    • Authors: Stan Chu Ilo Ph.D.
      Abstract: Stan Chu Ilo takes a detailed look at the vulnerabilities of the poor within the context of the COVID-19 pandemic and of global inequities in general, with a special focus on marginalized people in Africa. Because of its impact on the social determinants of health, which are explained, racism has exacerbated the pandemic’s effects. For this reason, Chu Ilo explores different definitions of power. He advocates a biosocial ethical approach to health—one that considers how people’s living conditions and behavior on both the global and individual levels affect health care decision-making and health outcomes. He discusses the need for the Church and the world to commit to a “prophetic praxis of hope”—“a change in mindsets, change in our ecclesial priorities and practices, and change in the Church’s teachings, institutional culture, and hierarchy of power and privilege.” He calls Catholic universities like DePaul to be “laborator[ies] for creating a new global vision of justice that is built on the power of love.”

  • Mass Incarceration, COVID-19, and Race as Exposure to Early Death

    • Authors: Traci Schlesinger Ph.D.
      Abstract: A majority of the largest, single-site outbreaks of COVID-19 infections in the United States have been in prisons and jails since the beginning of the pandemic. These outbreaks threaten the lives and well-being of incarcerated people, correctional staff, and people who live in the communities to which incarcerated people return. This study employs both linear and logistic multivariate regression models to examine data from the UCLA’s COVID Prison Data Project, IPUMS CPS, the National Center for Health Statistics, and the Prison Policy Initiative to better understand the facility, county, and state-level predictors of COVID-19 infections and deaths in correctional facilities. The study finds that while some facility-level characteristics are associated with infections and deaths, county-level racial and economic characteristics matter more. In particular, facilities in counties with more Latinx and Indigenous people and lower average incomes have higher infection rates. Likewise, the odds that someone in a facility has died from COVID-19 are higher in counties with more Latinx people, lower average incomes, more college graduates, and fewer people who never married. Moreover, state-level policy changes to address this crisis have failed to do so effectively. While this study is unable to access how county-level characteristics influence these facility-level outcomes, it does demonstrate a clear connection between racialization and exposure to early death.

  • The COVID-19 Pandemic and Homelessness: Depaul International Responds

    • Authors: J. Patrick Murphy C.M; Ph.D.
      Abstract: A member of the Vincentian Family, the nonprofit Depaul International serves people who are homeless throughout Europe and the US, a mission which became much more difficult during the COVID-19 pandemic. After giving some of the organization’s history, J. Patrick Murphy describes the challenges that staff and service users faced and how both groups (and donors) responded in extraordinary ways. He offers specific stories from different countries that illustrate how “staff shared common Vincentian values, provided leadership, increased communication, and shared resources and best practices across boundaries.” Depaul International members were asked what Vincent de Paul would say of their work, and their reflections are presented in their original words.

  • “Learning Not to Despair of Our Own Age”: The Society of Saint Vincent
           de Paul in This Time of Pandemic

    • Authors: Timothy P. Williams
      Abstract: In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Society of Saint Vincent de Paul marked the 175th anniversary of its founding in the United States. The Society’s usual works are described. Timothy Williams explains how the organization adapted to continue them during the pandemic, and particularly how it substituted for the home visits that have been the Society’s signature work since its founding. The Vincentian Family and the Society were created in times of political strife, widespread illness, and economic catastrophe, so the words and actions of their founders can inspire and comfort us now. The Society took special action in response to George Floyd’s murder. As Williams writes, “Our response began with self-examination, grounded in our spirituality and in our obligations to each other as Christians. To understand the faults we perceive in society, we must have the humility to examine and accept our own faults.” A webinar series allowed members to share their stories related to social issues, such as economic discrimination, crime, and violence. After the webinars, paired groups of members of different races shared more of their experiences. This strengthened their understanding of each other and equipped them to better serve their neighbors.

  • Online Community Engagement Enhances Service Learning

    • Authors: Dan Baron et al.
      Abstract: DePaul University’s Steans Center for Community-Based Service Learning created a program called Online Community Engagement (OCE) to safely connect students with communities during the COVID-19 pandemic. As this article says, “OCE provided self- directed modules including reading materials and videos for students focused on issues such as mental health, immigration, community organizing, police accountability, and gentrification. The modules culminated with a live online events on Fridays featuring guests from DePaul and Chicago communities.” OCE proved highly successful, especially because it provided a way for students to meet community organizers. The article profiles some of the most salient lessons featured in OCE as well as student feedback about them. OCE will remain part of the post-pandemic curriculum.

  • Critical Perspectives on Our Current Moment: An Experiment in Teaching for

    • Authors: Jane Eva Baxter Ph.D. et al.
      Abstract: During the summer of 2020, the DePaul College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences (LAS) offered twenty-two incoming students a special interdisciplinary online course, giving them the opportunity to learn and reflect on the crises of 2020 with faculty, staff, and one another. This article’s authors (who are the class’s faculty and students) describe the construction and execution of this course and reflect on the experience. Course topics included “the social contract; equity and justice; historical, cultural, and artistic responses to upheaval; global interconnections; and the way forward.” The course fulfilled DePaul’s mission to help students “engage questions of intellect and ethics in our contemporary world.” Students created reflective maps that connected what they were learning to their own lives and feelings, and they submitted videos explaining the project. Five appear in this article, illustrating how students learned to think differently and embark on new kinds of action.

  • A Vincentian Reading of the Pandemic: Hope Beyond All Reasonable

    • Authors: Guillermo Campuzano C.M.
      Abstract: Guillermo Campuzano, vice president of DePaul University’s Office of Mission and Ministry, reflects on the inequities and societal and environmental fragility that the COVID-19 pandemic reveals. Vincentian spirituality and theology have always been attuned to what is happening in the world and finding God’s call to action within current events. They can be used to maintain hope and a sense of God’s presence in the midst of the world disaster and can shape our response to the problems we are facing. Campuzano describes the pandemic’s effects on the university community and how the university’s leadership responded, drawing lessons that can be applied to society as a whole. As he writes, “God is calling us. We are being asked not only to respond adequately to the emergency, but to transform our way of life, and to relate to nature, to others, and to God in a more humane way as Jesus showed us in the gospels. . . . God is found not in the virus, but in the strength to respond to it with wisdom, solidarity, intelligence, and compassion.”
