CWN Editor's Note: “Few religious institutions were of greater service to Nicaraguan dictator Daniel Ortega during his rise to power than the Catholic religious order known as the Society of Jesus,” writes Mary Anastasia O’Grady of the Wall Street Journal, noting the irony in the fact that Ortega has now seized the assets of the Nicaraguan Jesuits.

The seizure is only the latest of many steps taken by Ortega against the Catholic Church. But O’Grady also observes: “Pope Francis, who is a Jesuit, hasn’t said a thing in defense of his brothers in Nicaragua.”
