No wonder the Jesuits kicked him out

Jean Danielou, SJ

In a 1972 interview, the scholarly Cardinal Jean Danielou, SJ, identified the source of rot which even then was well underway in many religious orders and has since consumed most of the once vital Society of Jesus, leaving a residue comprised mainly of whiny heretics and heresy sympathizers.   Chief among the problems noted by Cardinal Danielou were the abandonment by many congregations of religious obedience and the regular life of prayer.   Cardinal Danielou was rewarded for his insight and honesty by being kicked out of his quarters at the Jesuit publication "Etudes."  His nemesis at Etudes, Bruno Ribes, SJ, eventually left the order, (a common characteristic among Vatican II era firebrands).   Courtesy of Sandro Magister, you may read the full interview here (h/t Good Jesuit, Bad Jesuit).

St. Ignatius Loyola, pray for us.
