As a Society founded by a Jesuit priest, we have a long tradition of being advocates of the Church and Popes, even when it is necessary to speak truth to power in the most difficult times.

You may have noticed that Pope Francis is referenced and quoted throughout this website. The first Jesuit Pope is an exemplary role model who spreads the Good News, proclaims the mercy of Jesus and the unconditional love of God.
