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!

Catholic Stationery

I was just making my rounds with a couple friends to a Catholic bookstore in Tulsa.  That can be a dangerous place for my pocketbook, and alas, I couldn't resist buying some bold Catholic stationary there, which is also sold through the following website.  It is economical, beautiful, and faithful.  As theologian Hans urs von Balthasar taught, it is beauty that helps guide us to truth.

Receiving a hand-written note in and of itself can be good news, but surely this stationery can help share the Gospel all the more.  Check out this great website, and on the left-hand column click on the stationery options.  They also do address labels, business cards, holy cards, and much more:
