ONE OF THE MORE OFFENSIVE ASPECTS OF THE REIGN OF FRANCIS THE MERCIFUL IS THE PASSIVE SILENCE OF FRANCIS TO ANY AND ALL EVIDENCE OF WRONGDOING BY HIM. IF HE PUBLICLY MAINTAINS HIS INNOCENCE BY IMITATING THE PASSIVE SILENCE OF CHRIST BEFORE PILATE HE IS GUILTY OF SIN BY THE ASSUMPTION OF SUCH SELF-IDENTIFICATION WITH THE LORD.

The Suppression of the Jesuits (1750-1773) is an historical reality. The Suppression is the most difficult part of the history of the Society. Having enjoyed very high favor among Catholic peoples, kings, prelates, and popes for two centuries and a half centuries, it suddenly becomes an object of frenzied hostility, is overwhelmed with obloquy, and overthrown with dramatic rapidity. Every work of the Jesuits — their vast missions, their noble colleges, their churches — all is taken from them or destroyed. They are banished, and their order suppressed, with harsh and denunciatory words even from the pope. What made the contrast more striking is that their protectors for the moment were their former enemies. Will it occur again after Francis vacates the Throne of Peter?
