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!

Donate to A Beautiful, Innovative Ministry for the Pre-Born

Here you can see AMAZING, scientific pictures of "the miracle of life" the stages of the pre-born:

What a difference a picture makes!

In fact, one picture can save a life and immense heartache through the work of Image Clear Ultrasound National, which is growing a fleet of RVs equipped with pregancy testing, ultrasound equipment, and crisis pregnancy counselors.  I just heard about them as they are based out of Akron, Ohio, but are trying to spread across the nation. 

I knew a crisis pregnancy counselor in Iowa who told of an at-risk mother she counseled not to have an abortion.  Later the woman came up to her in a grocery store, crying, holding her baby, and thanking her for helping her to make the choice for life.  It was a "Presentation" that showed the power of spiritual motherhood and fatherhood.  I encourage anyone to learn about ICU National  by visiting

You can support this ministry through prayer, through spreading the good word, and through finances. 

As a new blogger, I am going to challenge my readers to consider donating to this worthy cause.  Just a single ICU RV in ONE year was able to save 153 children.  It costs $3,500 to provide an Ultrasound Exam Room Retrofit. 

Would you as a reader consider making a drop in the bucket in order to pay for such a room?
