" In light of Ignatius' 'Two Standards' and 'The Mystries Done From The Garden To The House Of Annas', at any moment we can be Judas or Peter, a Christian life can be a fine line."

Centuries Later The Counter Reformation Continues
The Newman Institute in Uppsala, Sweden
Stockholm (kath.net / KAP) is the weekend after centuries reopen a Catholic university in Sweden their doors.The "Newmaninstitutet" in Uppsala is in, according to the university administration, the first Catholic educational institution since the Reformation 16thhis century, which receives the power to take academic exams.1477 Pope Sixtus IV had been the last Catholic university founded in Uppsala.The Jesuit-run university is celebrating its opening on Sunday afternoon with three papers which deal, inter alia, the challenges to Christianity today.
I am not a Jesuit, nor am I a cleric. I spent about 5 years under the spiritual direction of a Jesuit, 3 of those years in a weekly directed retreat in everyday life. The profound impact that the Society and the Excercises had upon my life, resulted in me, trying to deal with that impact in some way by sharing my view of Jesus Christ with others. My intention is to pull together Jesuitical and Catholic subjects that interest me. I was born on the feast day of St. Paul Miki, S.J.. I am the father of three small children and an infant, I am married to a great wife.
