But the Pope is a Jesuit...and I'm pretty certain he took his name to recognize St. Francis Xavier.
I went to an all girl Catholic High School. Every year, a Jesuit Priest came to the school and lectured us for three days.
A very moralistic lecture it was...to the extreme. I went home and destryoyed all my patent leather shoes. (Every old Catholic girl will remember that one.)
Really? No, I don’t think so. I am an “old Catholic girl”, and I never heard of that nonsense about patent leather shoes until about 20 years ago. Some people just love to ridicule the clergy and the religious of the Catholic Church.
