The good news is that there are still quite a few extraordinarily holy and brilliant Jesuits around, just the kind of men the Order was originally founded to produce. The bad news is that all of them agree with this assessment of their Order, and they are unable to do anything whatsoever about it. I’ve written recently of the Apostolic Visitation of American seminaries, of American women religious, and of the Legion of Christ. Though there is no guarantee of success, such visitations are always a sign of hope. My hope is that the Society of Jesus will be next.
