April 19, 2013 | Only decades after its formation in 1540, the Society of Jesus had active missions around the world. In their global engagement Jesuits have combined a commitment to spread the Gospel with an embrace of dialogue with different cultures and religions.

This symposium explored the Jesuit approach to mission and dialogue across the world’s major regions, in historical and comparative perspective. It was part of Georgetown University’s multi-year Jesuits and Globalization Project.

One Reply to “The Jesuits, Globalization, and Dialogue”

  1. Presenting Jesuits as missionaries? What? I got nervous, so this little clause helped just a little: "…Basically a vow to be missionaries." Thank you for that clarification, ONLY "basically!" I know of no missionaries who make vows like such Jesuits. Their vows are outrageous and hence they got kicked out of numerous nations as they fulfilled their hideous "vows." As globalists they were not establishing Jesus' heavenly kingdom but rather the Pope's earthly kingdom.

    Let's please understand that they were not missionaries like Apostle Paul, or like Protestants of the intervening years. Paul for instance was setting up Jesus as the "all in all," the "Lord," the "one mediatior between God and man," etc. At no point did Paul or others set up a man besides Jesus as the "Pope."

    There are numerous things that the Apostles of the New Testament era did, said and promoted which are contrary to the Jesuits, for the Jesuits had a very clear raison d'etre! The Jesuits were designed to be the pope's soldiers. They had a "General" of course and vows that make them military men, spies, and very deceptive in their approach and method..
