“Young Jesuits seeking God in all things.”
The Jesuit Post (TJP) is an online media platform that offers a Jesuit, Catholic perspective on the contemporary world.
TJP is a project of Jesuits in formation. Nearly all of the contributors are not-yet-ordained Jesuits and Jesuit brothers studying theology or philosophy, or working full-time in our Jesuit ministries. A few recently ordained Jesuits also contribute to our work. On the whole, about 40 Jesuits are currently involved in the project on a part-time, volunteer basis.
TJP‘s mission is twofold:
- We aim to show that faith is relevant to today’s culture and that God is already at work in it. We touch on topics including current events, politics, spirituality, Church news, pop culture, and debates about belief and secularity. Our work focuses on both sacred and secular issues because we’re convinced that God’s does too.
- We offer Jesuits in formation a collaborate team environment as a catalyst for prayerful reflection on faith and culture in the service of healthy dialogue between the Church and the world.
Our guiding principle springs from the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius of Loyola: to write “as one friend speaks to another.” We write as we would speak to others in Jesuit community: funny while also sincere, intelligent while being accessible, with conviction while remaining open to the Spirit.
The Jesuit Post was founded in 2012 by Jesuits Paddy Gilger, Sam Sawyer, and Eric Sundrup. They first conceived of the idea while they were studying philosophy together at Loyola University Chicago as part of their Jesuit formation.
