Jesuits in the news

In Uncategorized on May 1, 2011 at 9:29 AM

Happy Easter! It’s been a busy couple of weeks, but I hope your Easter season continues to be blessed.

I came across this news story about Jesuits: Fewer Jesuit priests this Easter, but more people learning Jesuit ideals. Here’s a snippet:

The trend of fewer priests isn’t unique to the Washington region or to the Jesuits. The number of Catholic priests in the United States has been falling for decades.

But even as the Jesuits brace for near-extinction in this part of the world, their ideals are spreading.

The lack of new priests, they say, must be part of God’s vision for lay people. So rather than mourn, the Jesuits have been busy building an elaborate system for passing along their beliefs and unique meditative rituals, imaginative prayer known as the “spiritual exercises.”

Share your thoughts.
