Happy # 476 to the Jesuits!

jesuits
They have been a significant force in the Catholic faith for a long time, or 1540:
“The Jesuit movement was founded by Ignatius de Loyola, a Spanish soldier turned priest, in August 1534.
The first Jesuits–Ignatius and six of his students–took vows of poverty and chastity and made plans to work for the conversion of Muslims.
If travel to the Holy Land was not possible, they vowed to offer themselves to the pope for apostolic work.
Unable to travel to Jerusalem because of the Turkish wars, they went to Rome instead to meet with the pope and request permission to form a new religious order.
In September 1540, Pope Paul III approved Ignatius’ outline of the Society of Jesus, and the Jesuit order was born.”
Like any group, they are not perfect and there is always room to criticize.  At the same time, their contributions to mass education must be celebrated.   
Happy # 476 to the Jesuits!
