RJN S.J.? He would get a chuckle out of that, no doubt.
Ahh, the Jesuits get their revenge on Neuhaus for his “in the Jesuit tradition” trope, commenting on Jesuit universities. Nauhaus himself would think that was pretty funny, I’d imagine, always having struck me as the srot who could take a joke.
Fr. Neuhaus wasn’t a Jesuit.
S.J. for Neuhaus.
Hmmm. Didn’t know he had become a Jesuit.
Richard Neuhaus, SJ?
I think all wings of the Church can agree the mere idea is offensive.
The cover’s worst offense just might be the grammatical one—where’s the comma?
Fr Neuhaus, S.J.? I think not! :-)
Everybody knows RJN was an O.P. at heart ;)
That is a better error than when I first looked! I thought “what is wrong” was a lament that they had now both died.
If anyone here has not heard, Mr. Colson has been in critical condition since having brain surgery on Good Friday.
Typically his Easter weekend would have involved a lot of events with his prison ministries. Let us keep him in our prayers.
I was shocked when I found out that G.K. Chesterton was Catholic!
If this was printed posthumously, he is indeed in a society of Jesus.
Hilarious. Forward it to Father James Schall, S.J. (one of my favorite Jesuit professors!). Where did you find that copy? The corners looks aged.
I’ve pored over Father Richard Neuhaus’s articles; it’s only now that I dipped into his books. I finished “Catholic Matters”. Munching over “Naked Public Square” and “American Babylon” (favorite chapter so far is An Age of Irony).
Anyone remember the joke: A Dominican, a Franciscan, and a Jesuit were arguing over which of their orders God loved most. Finally they agreed to pray about it. As they prayed, a heavenly light appeared in the room and a piece of golden paper floated down from heaven. It read, “My dear children, I love you all equally and would never choose among you. Be at peace with each other. Signed, God, S.J.”
Hmmm, Lutheran Jesuit. It’s got possibilities.
I spent two years at the Marianhill Fathers junior seminary when in high school. Fr. Francis — who taught literature and history –always referred to Jesuits as Soft Jobbers. It may have been professional jealousy. Father was always threatening to write — but never did — a book entitled AN OUTDATED PRIEST LOOKS AT HIS MODERN CHURCH (now there’s a babyboomer cultural reference and a send up of a book most have probably forgotten). At Holy Thursday mass the head of the Jesuit province was there, along with one of our bishops, and Monsignor introduced him (the Jesuit priest) as almost as important. The parish is one of the most orthodox in Southeast Michigan and in my experience the more orthodox, the better the sense of humor.
