medieval oath..try the new oath 09.Oct.2002 12:32

ex-catholic

That was the original and a 2nd revision of the oath.
Vatican II changed that all again...if you examine the two you notice the diff. between the two is significant...and thats just between 1838 and 1913! Current jesuit oath is nothing like this. Contemporary American Jesuits have continued the ground breaking traditions of their forerunners in fields of theology and human rights. The formerly named School of Americas Watch (SOA Watch) was started by Jesuit Fr. Roy Bourgeois, after the assisignation of six Jesuit priests, their cook and her daughter in El Salvador. Fr. John Courtney Murray, an expert at the Second Vatican Council, succeeded in reconciling doctrines of separation of church and state and freedom of conscience with the theological tradition of the Catholic Church. He has come to be described as the "architect" of the conciliar document on religious freedom (aka the Catholic Church's recognition that other religions and their practitioners are neither evil nor damned in any way). Fr. John LaFarge, as editor of America, was one of the first to address American problems of racial injustice and civil rights. His writings on inter-racial justice influenced papal teaching.
