Jesuits: at the foot of the sacred slipper...



Potshots at Peter are never nice. Is it me, or do we never hear anything positive from the Jesuits?

We hear plenty about their cynicism, distortion, failure and apparent self-aggrandizement, but what of their loyalty to their boss?

In the old days these soldiers were team players:

"SOLI DOMINO AC ECCLESIAE IPSIUS SPONSAE SUB ROMANO PONTIFICE CHRISTI IN TERRIS VICARIO SERVIRE."

FORM. INST., N. 1

They should have been surpressed or dis-banded 50 years ago. What they are good at unfortunately, is duping parents out of huge amounts of tuition money in the guize of providing a catholic education for their children. They are the WORST!A huge stumbling block in the way of catholic restoration.

It still isn't too late to abolish them. Give their property to more worthy orders.

Even some fundy Protestants are disenchanted with the Jesuits. They know the sidetracked story of how they are no longer loyal to the Pope and so are not shaping the future (ah, the claque of modernism). Their executive ability or prestigious Rockefeller mark lies only in their schools like Ford Motor Company (prestigious name but dud car). The new orders in the bassinet are the ones to support and not these old ones blowing cigar smoke in the face of the Pope.
