Don't Give Up on the Jesuits

So you've heard about the antics of the Jesuits and their neo-modernism over and over again - and you may have all but given up on their order (I'm referring more to the comments-section in this link), considering the few orthodox ones to be a dying breed.

Don't be so sure.

On this feast of the Annunciation of Our Lord, we, the leadership of the Jesuits in the United States, fervently renew our opposition to abortion and our support for the unborn.

When early Christians began to reflect on their faith in Jesus of Nazareth as Christ and Lord, they concluded that abortion was a grave sin. To believe in the mystery of the Incarnation, in God’s wondrous decision to become human and take on the life of our natural existence of conception, birth, maturation, and death, commits one to affirm the dignity and sacredness of human life from conception to death.

This is a sign of hope. Or a hopeful sign. I've also met several Jesuit seminarians, and they have impressed me as being solid young men, faithful to the Church and our Holy Father.
