Introducing TJP

Speaking with our peers, young(-ish) adults, and using a variety of digital media, The Jesuit Post offers a Jesuit, Catholic perspective on the contemporary world. We aim to show that faith is relevant to today’s culture and that God is already at work in it. Our work focuses on both sacred and secular issues because we’re convinced that God’s does too.

Our guiding principle springs from the Spiritual Exercises of Saint Ignatius of Loyola: write “as one friend speaks to another.” We write as we would speak to others in Jesuit community: funny while still serious, deeply profound and yet light and accessible.

TJP is a project of Jesuits in formation. Nearly all of the contributors are not-yet-ordained Jesuits studying theology or philosophy, or working in our Jesuit ministries. Several recently ordained Jesuits also contribute to our work. On the whole, about 50 Jesuits are currently involved in the project.

In addition to this website, TJP maintains a very active social media presence. We try to contribute to the web’s best conversations about faith and culture — whether it touches on politics, theology, Church news, debates about belief and secularity, or really anything else.

We are published by America Media, the home of America magazine. As part of that relationship, we have committed to producing new content for our website 46 weeks of the year. We hope you enjoy and benefit from our work as much as we do!
