Personal Introduction

Welcome! My name is John Roselle, SJ, and I took lifelong ("perpetual") vows of poverty, chastity, and obedience as a Jesuit on August 13th, 2011 after a two-year novitiate. I am now a Jesuit Scholastic for the Wisconsin Province of the Society of Jesus. I will study philosophy and theology for the next three years at Loyola University in Chicago. At the same time, I will do part-time ministry in some capacity with the poor. After that, I will likely teach for three years before finishing three more years of theology. Then, God willing, I will be ordained a Roman Catholic Jesuit priest! It's a long road, but a blessed, fun, and enriching one. This blog exists as a resource for friends, family, and others who are interested in my progress through the Jesuit process of formation. Every day is its own adventure, and I am happy to have you along with me to share in this. This blog contains my own personal thoughts and should not be taken to speak for the entire Society of Jesus. Feel free to contact me. God bless you!

Great Jesuit Interview with Archbishop Timothy Dolan

Recently there was an illuminating interview between New York's joyful Archbishop Timothy Dolan and renowned Jesuit author (and "chaplain" on the Colbert Report) Fr. James Martin. Below is a link. The two of them speak in mutual admiration of one another and of Jesuit spirituality.
For those interested in learning more about the Jesuits, or about how the Jesuits relate to the overall Church, this is a wonderful window into those topics.

  1. I've been thinking a lot lately about one of the things they said, about how not only does the Church have just the coolest culture of its own, but how there is such a feeling of "family" within the Church even a sense of kinship with the saints. That is so true. Good interview. They made a lot of good points :)
