A Message from the Editor in Chief

My Brothers and Sisters in Christ:

On this Feast of Saint Ignatius of Loyola, founder of the Society of Jesus, we give thanks for the many gifts that God has bestowed on the Society of Jesus and our colleagues and friends throughout the world. Here at America, we offer a special prayer of thanksgiving for our readers, writers, staff, benefactors and other supporters. Without you, our work would be pointless and impossible. Thank you. May God continue to bless you and America; may He also grant us the grace, in the words of Pope Francis, to realize anew that "to serve Christ is to love this concrete church and to serve it with generosity."

Although Mr. Ramaphosa is a relatively acceptable leader of the A.N.C. in the eyes of some opposition parties, his economic stance will put him in tension with the populist left Economic Freedom Fighters and many trade unions.
