Welcome the "Reforming the Jesuits" blog.

This blog has the objective of reforming the Jesuits. The logic is first to show that the Jesuits need to be reformed and second to consider the means needed to achieve that end.

Why should non-Jesuits be concerned about reforming the order?
The Jesuit order like any religious order has as an end to serve Christ by serving His Church. The members of the Church have the right to control the quality of the service that it is receiving.

The service that the Catholic faithful receive comes from institutional decisions and from individual Jesuits. Many love the traditional Society of Jesus, her saints, her mysticism, and her history but are dismayed by the direction taken by the current management. Many have been served by pious orthodox Jesuits but are scandalized by others. It seems that there is an identity crisis. The very institution does not know what its ends are. While the documents of the order are clear, institutional discipline has broken down, some members are confused and leaders have refused to lead.


What should be done? Some argue that the Society should be suppressed again. That would be a shame. Given that the name of the Society of Jesus in Spanish is La Compañía de Jesús, maybe what should be preferred is a hostile takeover of the Company. That does not seem possible. During the crazy post VCII days some Orthodox Spanish Jesuits advanced the proposal of the establishment of a reformed ordered following the example of the Carmelites and Trapists, others proposed the foundation of "strict observance" provinces.


This blog aims to apply moral pressure advancing arguments for what seems to be a clear truth: the Jesuits need reformed. Then it invites brain storming looking for possible solutions. Ideas are powerful but prayer is more powerful. We invite readers to pray. Invoke the Jesuit saints.

From the Georgetown Voice

I urge the dear reader to compare what Dulles and Ignatius say about the mission of the Society with this note from Georgetown a so called Jesuit University.

DeGioia agrees to Pride demands
Kate Mays and Sam Sweeney

Georgetown University President John DeGioia committed last night to a fully-funded and fully-staffed resource center for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning students by fall of next year.

DeGioia’s appearance at an open forum in the ICC auditorium came after weeks of pressure from Georgetown’s LGBTQ community for better support following recent hate crimes.

“How do we respond to legitimate requests for a more supportive environment?” DeGioia said. “We can continue to do this in a somewhat informal manner … or we can move forward in a more organized way, through more formal and institutional structures and processes. In this case, it is time for the latter.”

DeGioia also announced the formation of three working groups comprised of faculty, staff and students to address GU Pride’s demands for a reformed incidents of bias and hate reporting system, enhanced LGBTQ-related education and a full-time resource center. He expects the working groups, which will report directly to DeGioia and Provost James O’Donnell, to have actionable suggestions within a month of their first meetings.

GU Pride Co-President Scott Chessare (COL ‘10) was thrilled by DeGioia’s promises.

“We won!” he said. “I don’t think we would have believed less than two months ago that there would be so much institutional change in such a short amount of time.”

Throughout his remarks, DeGioia stressed the importance of addressing LGBTQ issues in the context of Georgetown’s Catholic identity.

“At a Catholic and Jesuit university, [we] cannot advocate for policies or practices that are counter to Catholic teaching,” he said. “Part of my responsibility as an administrator … is to ensure that nothing can compromise the integrity of our mission and identity.”

A question and answer session followed DeGioia’s opening remarks. Former GU Pride President Shamisa Zvoma (MSB ‘08) questioned the effectiveness of working groups.

“I have very little confidence in their ability to get things done,” she said, citing the failures of past LGBTQ working groups.

“I have a lot of confidence that in this moment we can do something we haven’t done before and that’s what I’m counting on,” DeGioia responded.

In their questions, several students shared their personal encounters with homophobia at Georgetown. In Arthur Colker’s (SFS ‘11) Chinese class, his professor, to demonstrate correct usage of the Chinese word for “truly strange,” pointed to Colker and said, “Arthur has a boyfriend. That’s truly strange,” according to Colker.

After a pause, DeGioia told Colker, “There are no circumstances under which you should have to experience that.”

DeGioia was hesitant to admit the existence of a homophobic culture at Georgetown, calling it “a dimension of this community which doesn’t resonate with my experience.”

However, he added, “I have seen moments in which the behavior of members of our community can only be described as homophobic.”

The evening ended with a question from LGBTQ resources coordinator Bill McCoy about how Georgetown could attract more faculty and staff able to mentor LGBTQ students.

“The notion of same-sex couples living in our residence halls—no,” DeGioia said. “I don’t see that working out. There are limits to what we can do.”

McCoy said afterwards that DeGioia’s answer “illuminates a barrier on this campus to engage in these issues … in the full context of the LGBTQ community.”

According to Chessare, GU Pride is pleased with DeGioia’s response. “The bottom line is he committed to a resource center,” he said. “I think DeGioia really put himself on the line and that’s the kind of thing a real ally would do.”
