Regenerating our Culture

Filipinos are known to be friendly, warm and honest. However, there are many instances when the Filipinos’ positive characteristics are put to the test—like when we are caught committing a traffic violation or during election season when a great need to win an electoral post consumes many of our countrymen.

Intersect, the quarterly magazine of the John J. Carroll Institute on Church and Social Issues (JJCICSI) in its latest issue titled, “Regenerating Culture,” explores Filipino culture and how it can be regenerated in different areas in our society. The issue begins with an article written by Fr. Albert Alejo, S.J., followed by articles written by Fr. John J. Carroll, S.J. and the JJCICSI team of researchers. The issue tackles how the ugly tentacles of our society’s deterioration as manifested by election frauds, environmental degradation, colonial mentality, and impunity can be counquered by cultural regeneration.
