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!

Podcast from Jesuit on the Reservation

This is a new podcast with Fr. Peter Klink, the former president of Red Cloud Indian School on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in South Dakota.  Fr. Klink has dedicated much of his life to working for and with the Lakota people.  He is beloved by them, and he was a real inspiration to me (as well as a spiritual director) during my time on the reservation.  Enjoy listening to this wise and generous Jesuit!

  1. When I was a kid I had a Ziggy cartoon framed on my wall, eventually it moved to my desk and now it's in storage but I need to get it out. It was Ziggy playing a video game and said, "Life is like a video game, the more you put into it, the more you get out of it." Good quote...and true!
