By "restructuring" they mean "death spiral"

The Jesuits close their astronomical observatory at Ebro in Spain, on account of "restructuring" in the Society.  These numbers are for the US, but they give some idea of what's driving the restructuring:

 "in 1965 there were 5,277 Jesuit priests and 3,559 seminarians; in 2000 there were 3,172 priests and 38 seminarians."

Rorate Caeli has more here.

St. Ignatius Loyola, pray for us.
