The Migrant's Double Vision: Understanding Pope Francis' Culture of Encounter
In his first Pentecost homily, Pope Francis challenged Christians to cultivate a “culture of encounter” by moving beyond comfort zones to engage difference in a mutually transformative manner.
By taking the “double vision” of migrants seriously as a catalyst for theological reflection, this call acquires a distinct way of viewing reality that resists the temptations of the center in light of the Christ event. Joseph will explore this claim by examining how the interstitial insights of theologians from the Vietnamese-American, Mexican-American, and African-American contexts contribute to an understanding of the transformative potential of encounter.
