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!

Loyola's Madonna della Strada Chapel

It's not quite the Sistine Chapel tour (like the one below), but here are a few gorgeous pictures of the chapel at Loyola University in Chicago, named after the Jesuit patroness Madonna della Strada ("Our Lady of the Way"), whose prayers Jesuit implore when they are travelling.  The chapel is a prime work of Art Deco architecture and has been recently renovated.  It is a tremendous place to worship.
