The Society of Jesus in the United States of America (Jesuits) is a Roman Catholic order of priests and brothers founded half a millennium ago by the soldier-turned-mystic Ignatius Loyola. The Society dedicates itself to the "greater glory of God" and the good of all humanity. With close to 17,000-plus priests and brothers worldwide, the Jesuits are the largest male religious order in the Catholic Church, comprising pastors, teachers, and chaplains – as well as doctors, lawyers, and astronomers, among many other roles in Church and society. Especially through its education ministries, the Jesuits seek to nurture "men and women for others" and draw on the rich tradition of Ignatian spirituality and reflection.
The Society of Jesus publishes a number of award-winning journals and publications including America, Studies in the Spirituality of Jesuits and National Jesuit News. http://www.jesuit.org/
