Website Review: Jesuits

A review based on:


The Society of Jesus was founded in 1540 by St. Ignatius Loyola. Today there are over 20,000 Jesuits serving the Church in 112 nations on six continents. This official website of the Society of Jesus in the United States provides information on the Jesuit Conference, Province Offices, vocations, and Jesuit ministries and publications. Of special note is an excellent PDF file of the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius.

Unfortunately, because of this Order's pervasive tendency towards liberation theology and religious indifferentism, many of the resources on the site are questionable at best.
