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!

Fall Break at the Lake

This past weekend, I had the great joy and blessing of going out to a simple lake house in upper Michigan with about 20 of my brothers.  Some of us had to stay in the "barracks," and in the middle of the night I awoke to quite a chill.  Needless to stay, the next night I slept on the couch in the main house.  The weather over the weekend (during the day at least) was lovely.  Just a couple months in the big city with the rush of classes, etc. had taken their toll.  Now was the time for some R & R.  We had a blast.  Enjoy the pictures.
