Hello, I am a Jesuit scholastic studying in Rome. You are absolutely correct that these men are wearing a Jesuit cassock. However, it is false that "the vast majority of Rome's Jesuits" are from India. India has the most Jesuits for a single country, but Indian Jesuits in Rome are less than 10%, if that.
Where is S. Francis Xavier buried?
I was impressed by this photo until I read the word "Jesuit". Then I cringed.Jesuits, especially some from Asia, have been guilty of fostering dissent and disobedience ad well as the most bizarre inculturated Masses ever seen....complete with Hindu temple dancing, music, gestures.The cassock is nice, and it makes a good picture. But I'm wary of all Jesuits, after what they did to the Church since Vatican II.Examples: Pedro Arrupe, Carlo Maria Cardinal Martini, S.J. Two radical dissenting liberals.'nuff said.
CREO QUE NO jesuitas hijo. La sotana es similar a la de los jesuitas, pero la banda de los jesuitas Establecidos Con las bandas a la derecha y Los Tienen a la izquierda. Será una congregación inspirado por los jesuitas, aunque no jesuitas.
He is not buried. His body is in a glass casket ornamented in gold. The casket is exposed for the veneration of the faithful. His body is in India, in a place I believe called the Church of Bom Gesu (Church of Good Jesus) in Portuguese, in the city of Goa.Goa was in the 16th-17th centuries an old Portuguese colony, and very many Indians became Catholics thru the work of St. Francis Xavier, and the Jesuits who came there after him. Many of the Indians in this part of the country became Catholic, so that today, the area of Goa has the largest Catholic populations and percentages in all India (some parts as high as 40% Catholic....at least before Vatican II that is!!). Many of the native Indian people adopted Portuguese names. As a result there are millions of Indians with last names such as Gracias, Gonsalvez, Gomes, Fernandao, and others.
IT WOULD BE GOOD TO SEE ALL JESUITS IN CASSOCKS AND TEACHING THE TRUE FAITH...
Thank God for people like Arrupe and Martini, Jesuits that Ignatius would be proud of...maybe instead of worrying so much about the dress of priests you should seek the faith that does justice
Jesuits just look awesome. Called the “black robes” because of their traditionally black cassok, they have a standard look, and who wouldn’t want to look like this? :) by Loyola Sam
