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 NBC Vatican Footage

Here is a link to recent clips from NBC's Today Show that really give a good glimpse into the goodness of the Pope and the Church.  They tackle an inside-look on his daily routine, what it was like for Matt Lauer to meet the Pope, and the Church's response to the abuse scandal, as described by Archbishop Timothy Dolan of New York City.  They are quick and there are more are on the left-hand side-bar.  Enjoy!
