The Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Jesuits (cont.)

In May 2006, on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of  Haurietis Aquas, the encyclical by Pope Pius XII extolling devotion to the Sacred Heart, Pope Benedict XVI composed a letter to the General of the Society of Jesus urging the Jesuits to renew their efforts to promote devotion to the Sacred Heart.   The Pope's letter appears not to have elicited from the Jesuits an energetic assent.  Indeed, as far as I can tell, there has been no response whatever from the Jesuits.
