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!

Moments of Grace Thus Far from Pope's Visit to Germany

As the Holy Father visits his homeland, here are some of the stories that have thus developed.  As I truly believe that the Pope is one of God's voices in the world, as the Vicar of Christ to whom the Church is entrusted, these moments of grace take on a special meaning.

The Holy Father's Return:

Ecumenical Meeting and Words on Unity

Meeting with Sex Abuse Victims:

Visiting Martin Luther's Former Seminary:

Words on Catholics, Muslims, and their Common Work
