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!

A Miracle through the Intercession of Archbishop Fulton J Sheen, Servant of God?

As many of you know, the great TV evangelist, Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen has a very active cause for his canonization.  I was delighted to read the following incredible story about a possible miracle (and it's not the only one!) through his intercession.  If he is ever declared a saint, he would be the first American-born Catholic priest, I believe.

Here is the official site for his cause, which also promotes a new movie about the good Archbishop:
