The Society of Jesus is a world-wide organization with Headquarters in Rome where the highest authority called the Superior General resides and guides the world-wide operations of nearly 16,000 Jesuits spread out in about 112 countries. These 16,000 Jesuits are grouped into smaller administrative units corresponding to different geographical locations called "Provinces" presided over by Superiors appointed by the superior General.view more
Fr. Jerome Stanislaus D'Souza, SJ
Recently, I happened to read the life story of St Jose’ de Anchieta, a Portuguese Jesuit, called the apostle of Brazil, co-founder of two cities of Brazil, father of Brazilian literature. Think of a field of art or science he is there standing tall. I believe that he can be a model for us to live our own life and mission well.
It is interesting to note that he came to Brazil by accident. In his youth he dislocated his spine, which had left him with a curved spine and in constant pain.
