  •  Our Back Pages: Your faves from the SCM Archives

    Wednesday, Jan. 12, 2011

    One of the lovely things about the life of a magazine online is the ever-present archive: searchable (mostly), skimmable, printable, and permanent as long as the servers housing the digital repositories keep purring away. So perhaps not so permanent.

    But point being: You, dear readers, roam through the past as well as the present on the SCM site on a regular basis, as Google Analytics tells us. What drew your attentions in the past year? The death of Chancellor Paul Locatelli, S.J. '60 loomed large -- just as his influence on the University over 20 years of leadership exerts a profound influence.
    Explorers of the archives also came in search of the Spiritual Exercises and Jesse James, looking for photos celebratory and provoking, accompanying a bus that is taking family members to visit mothers and daughters in prison, traveling back to the founding of a college in Santa Clara and into the crossword puzzle pages. If you haven't read these pieces already, you might discover something illuminating yourself. Read on.

    In his mid-20s, Inigo de Loyola kept an informal notebook of the consolations, graces, and inner wrechings he experienced while meditating on scripture. This Manresa notebook went on to become a practical manual that has helped escort countless others through mystical contact with their soul's deepest yearnings and thus with God.
