13 Replies to “What is a Jesuit?”

  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. Who are you Jesuits? Are you not the people who help control of the world? I mean by TV and film and music. Politic, wars and the church? Is that not what you do? Troll on internet. Push Marilyn Manson to wear breasts and say he love to fuck children? Are you not behind NASA? The fake space walk film? Please let me know what you are doing as Jesuits.

  3. jesuits today are fundamentally not orthodox christians!
    they are famously known as proud people, very involved in many different activities but not so much involved in devotions and prayer!
    They are not as obedient to God as they are to their superiors.
    Saint Ignatius would not be so proud of the shape of his Order today.. let us pray for the Jesuits

  4. Are Catholics aware what the Jesuit oath is? This is part of the oath taken by Jesuit pope Francis:

    "I furthermore promise and declare that I will, when opportunity present, make and wage relentless war, secretly or openly, against all heretics, Protestants and Liberals, as I am directed to do, to extirpate and exterminate them from the face of the whole earth; and that I will spare neither age, sex or condition; and that I will hang, waste, boil, flay, strangle and bury alive these infamous heretics, rip up the stomachs and wombs of their women and crush their infants' heads against the walls, in order to annihilate forever their execrable race. That when the same cannot be done openly, I will secretly use the poisoned cup, the strangulating cord, the steel of the poniard or the leaden bullet, regardless of the honor, rank, dignity, or authority of the person or persons, whatever may be their condition in life, either public or private, as I at any time may be directed so to do by any agent of the Pope or Superior of the Brotherhood of the Holy Faith, of the Society of Jesus.

    Where's the love of Christ in the oath?
