Towards Reforming the International Financial and Monetary Systems - Video and audio - News and media - Home

Speaker(s): Cardinal Peter Turkson Chair: Professor Conor Gearty Recorded on 6 February 2014 in Old Theatre, Old Building. The current global financial crisis has already continued for six years now – much longer than most feared at the beginning. Moreover, there have been several sequels, the Euro crisis being the most notable. Let us reflect on the surprising technical origins of the crisis and the shocking moral ones. Let us ask what the system has learned, what insights have been acted upon, what reform is underway. And let us explore areas that remain to be reformed, in particular the responsibility of governments to embed practices of financial stewardship. Would the restoration of economic stability and prosperity be enough? Pope Francis would have the economy commit to real remedies for grinding poverty, growing inequality, social exclusion and environmental degradation. Cardinal Peter Kodwo Appiah Turkson is president of the Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace and Archbishop emeritus of Cape Coast (Ghana). On 6 October 1992 he was appointed Archbishop of Cape Coast and received episcopal ordination on 27 March 1993. He served as president of the Ghana Catholic Bishops' Conference (1997-2004). He was a member of Governing Council of the University of Ghana, Legon (2001-2006) and of the Board of Directors of Central Region Development Commission (CEDECOM) (2002-2006). He served as treasurer of the Symposium of Episcopal Conferences of Africa and Madagascar (SECAM) (2007-2009) and presently serves as Vice President of the Association of Episcopal Conferences of Anglophone West Africa (AECAWA). He served as President of the Regional Episcopal Conference of West Africa (RECOWA) (2007-2010). He was also Chairman of the Ghana Chapter of the Conference of Religions for Peace (2003-2007) and Ghana National Peace Council (2006-2010). On 24 October 2009 he was nominated President of the Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace. On September 24, 2013, he was confirmed by Pope Francis as President of the Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace. He has been awarded numerous honorary degrees and speaks 6 languages (Fante, English, French, Italian, German, Hebrew).

This week I speak with "pyro-theologian" Peter Rollins.   This interview, perfect for Holy Week and Easter, is about "divine doubt" and letting go of the need for God to solve our problems.  His latest book is called The Idolatry of God:  Breaking Our Addiction to Certainty and Satisfaction. "He explores how the Good News actually involves embracing the idea that we can’t be whole, that life is difficult, and that we are in the dark. Arguing that God has traditionally been approached as a product that will render us complete, remove our suffering and reveal the answers, he introduces an incendiary approach to faith that invites us to embrace our brokenness, face our unknowing and accept the difficulties of existence. Only then, he argues, can we truly rob death of its sting and enter into the fullness of life."" name="DESCRIPTION http://religionforlife.podomatic.com/entry/2013-03-28T12_54_16-07_00

Interview: Gerry Conlon (25 Feb 11)

Gerry Conlon spent fifteen years in prison for a crime he didn't commit. He was one of the so-called Guildford Four, jailed in 1975 for an IRA pub bombing which killed five people and injured more than sixty. Other members of his family were also wrongfully imprisoned for terrorist offences, including his father - who was to die in prison. In 2005 the then British prime minister Tony Blair apologised to Gerry Conlon and the others in his case and he was awarded compensation. But on The Interview he tells Carrie Gracie that he still can't move on and his life has been ruined.

Injustice: Hasn't Christianity been an instrument for oppression?

Historically, the gospel has been particularly empowering and compelling to the poor and the oppressed. Seeing what Jesus did for us, no matter what our socioeconomic position, frees us from being controlled by what is on the surface and teaches us to love and identify with the poor.
