200 Year Anniversary

The miracle of Pope Pius VII 'levitating' at Mass on 15 August 1811
The superior general of the Society of Jesus, the Church’s largest male religious institute, has issued a letter commemorating the upcoming bicentennial of the institute’s restoration with the issue of Solicitudo omnium ecclesiarum. by Pope Pius VII. Founded in 1534, the Church’s largest male religious institute was suppressed by Pope Clement XIV in 1773 under political pressure. Father Adolfo Nicolás, the superior, proposed five themes for the 2014 bicentennial year: “creative fidelity,” “love for our Institute,” “fraternal companionship,” “universal mission,” and “faith in Providence.”
