  1. The Society of Jesus (S.J. – from Latin: Societas Iesu) is a scholarly religious congregation of the Catholic Church which originated in sixteenth-century Spain.

    The members are called Jesuits.

    The society is engaged in evangelization and apostolic ministry in 112 nations on six continents.

    Jesuits work in education (founding schools, colleges, universities, and seminaries), intellectual research, and cultural pursuits.

    Jesuits also give retreats, minister in hospitals and parishes, sponsor direct social ministries, and promote ecumenical dialogue.

    Ignatius of Loyola, a Basque nobleman from the Pyrenees area of northern Spain, founded the society after discerning his spiritual vocation while recovering from a wound sustained in the Battle of Pamplona.

    He composed the Spiritual Exercises to help others follow the teachings of Jesus Christ.

    In 1534, Ignatius and six other young men, including Francis Xavier and Peter Faber, gathered and professed vows of poverty, chastity, and later obedience, including a special vow of obedience to the Pope in matters of mission direction and assignment.

    Ignatius's plan of the order's organization was approved by Pope Paul III in 1540 by a bull containing the "Formula of the Institute".

    Ignatius was a nobleman who had a military background, and the members of the society were supposed to accept orders anywhere in the world, where they might be required to live in extreme conditions.

    Accordingly, the opening lines of the founding document declared that the society was founded for "whoever desires to serve as a soldier of God, to strive especially for the defence and propagation of the faith and for the progress of souls in Christian life and doctrine."

    Jesuits are thus sometimes referred to colloquially as "God's soldiers", "God's marines", or "the Company", which evolved from references to Ignatius' history as a soldier and the society's commitment to accepting orders anywhere and to endure any conditions.

    The society participated in the Counter-Reformation and, later, in the implementation of the Second Vatican Council.

    The Society of Jesus is consecrated under the patronage of Madonna Della Strada, a title of the Blessed Virgin Mary, and it is led by a Superior General.

    The headquarters of the society, its General Curia, is in Rome.

    The historic curia of St. Ignatius is now part of the Collegio del Gesù attached to the Church of the Gesù, the Jesuit mother church.

    In 2013, Jorge Mario Bergoglio became the first Jesuit to be elected Pope, taking the name Pope Francis.

  2. POPE FRANCIS IS NOT A CHRISTIAN, he is a follower and teacher of indifference. He believes in many religions, this is the reason that francis often teaches the absurd evil, that muslims and Christians are brothers.

    The muslims oppose Jesus' Holy Word and the testimony of the Apostles, by strongly denying that Jesus was crucified. (koran sura 4/157). Muslims are false teachers and anti-christs: 

    1 JOHN 2 "Who is a liar, but he who denies that Jesus is the Christ? This is antichrist, who denies the Father, and the Son. Whosoever denies the Son, the same has NOT the Father. He that confesses the Son, has the Father also."

    Of course, every Christian deeply knows that Jesus’ Holy Blood flowed with the gift of Life. We know that Jesus our Christ allowed his wounds of sacrifice, to purify us from our sins, during His Crucifixion.

    The testimony of the Apostle Matthew offers witness of this great event. 
    (chapter 27)
    In Rome 2014, pope francis instructed a group of refugees on the ways to overcome their difficulties “…Those that are Christian, with the Bible, and those that are Muslim, with the Quran. The faith that your parents instilled in you will always help you move on.”

                            OUR LORD JESUS WAS CRUCIFIED BY THE WORLD.
                          PAUL THE APOSTLE WAS BEHEADED BY THE WORLD. 

                                BY THE WORLD, POPE FRANCIS IS HONORED. 

    Francis is Time magazine's man of the world for 2013. The homosexual magazine "The Advocate'' is also proclaiming francis as the #1 person of the year. He has also been named one of the 50 most influential jews, by ''Forward'' an online jewish publication – November 2013.  
    JAMES 4 "Adulterers, know you not that the friendship of this world is the enemy of God? Whosoever therefore will be a friend of this world, becomes an enemy of God."
