"Are we prepared to promote conditions in which the living contact with God can be reestablished? For our lives today have become godless to the point of complete vacuity. God is no longer with us in the conscious sense of the word. He is denied, ignored, excluded from every claim to have a part in our daily life." - Alfred Delp, S.J.

St. Ignatius Loyola

I wonder if there are any traditional Jesuits?

Occupy yourself in beholding and bewailing 
your own imperfections rather than 
contemplating the imperfections of others.

  1. Anima Christi

    Anima Christi, sanctifica me.
    Corpus Christi, salva me.
    Sanguis Christi, inebria me.
    Aqua lateris Christi, lava me.
    Passio Christi, conforta me.
    O bone Jesu, exaudi me.
    Intra vulnera tua absconde me.
    Ne permittas me separari a te.
    Ab hoste malign defende me.
    In hora mortis meae voca me.
    Et jube me venire ad te.
    Ut cum sanctis tuis laudem te
    In saecula saeculorum. Amen.

    1. My thoughts exactly. ^^ I asked myself if San Ignacio was thinking of the Catholic blogosphere when he advising his sons. But then again, I know he was thinking of me.

      San Ignacio, ruega por nosotros.

  4. I have known my fair share, gentleman and good, even holy, souls all. One of my favorites on returning from studies in Rome said he had to get a new back--there were so many knives in his old one. I am so happy I took Ignatius as my Confirmation name. I ask his help everyday...

    1. Me too - I've known many - good and holy. I've run into a couple of really far out guys - but only a couple. I was more or less thinking if there has ever been a 'reform' movement within the order.

  5. Terry there are traditional Jesuits but most are members of newer orders who practice traditional Jesuit spirituality: Servi Jesu et Mariae and Miles Christi
