Jesuits who do incredible work on the Rosebud Indian Reservation, Fr. John Hatcher and scholastic Tom Olson, were featured last night on EWTN Live, the show that Mother Angelica entrusted to Jesuit Fr. Mitch Pacwa. You can watch the episode here:

As someone who worked on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation, which is 2 hours away from the Rosebud Reservation, I have seen the beauty and the struggle of the Lakota people and their church. God bless!
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!
