Sometimes shepherds lose their way

I don't trust Jesuits anymore. I don't think St. Ignatius would be happy with a spiritual son who denies transubstantiation.

I think this is a bit "too" global! Shall I mention Jesuits such as Frs. Mitch Pacwa, Joseph Fessio, James V. Schall? There are some "off the reservation," indeed. But there are many who are staunch Defenders of the Faith.

Pax tecum!

It is indeed sad to see any religious member dishonor the charism of their founder by straying from the teachings of the magisterium and by not basing all their actions on the fruit of prayer.

I have also sadly seen this more prominant among the Jesuits than with other orders. Perhaps this is because they are frequenly highly intelligent and well educated, to the point that if care is not taken, they can begin to "invent" their own truth,their own concept of God, leaving the revealed truth off to the side and not being sufficiently humble to allow for charitable correction by the poor and meak around them.

It is truly difficult for the rich to enter heaven and the Jesuits I have met are certainly rich in the gifts of intelligence.

"Aristotelian physics makes such nice, however implausible and now unintelligible, distinctions. They are meaningless in the post-Newtonian world of quantum physics, which is the scientific context we live in today."

His problem is he's trusting modern science too much.

Galileo dabbled into that too and a minor charge process on his Heliocentric views may have saved him from burning on the stake.
