The Society of Jesus (in Latin: SocietasIesu) is a Christian male religious congregation of the Catholic Chur...ch. The members are called Jesuits. It is an anglicized version of Latin Jesuita which is the combination of the two Latin words Jesu and Ita that means “Yes Jesus.” Their names end with a title: SJ, which abbreviates ‘Society of Jesus.” The Portuguese, who had political control over certain regions in the Indian sub-continent from 16th Century, supported the Catholic Church and the Jesuit Mission in many respects. Due to Political and ideological conflicts in Europe, on 21st July 1773, the Society of Jesus was suppressed by Pope Clement XVI. But after 41 years, Pope Pius VII restored the Society of Jesus in 1814 and the Jesuit order was re-established throughout the world. Today, there are more than 16,000 Jesuits in 111 countries in 6 continents of whom around 400 are working at schools and colleges of Ranchi Province. The Jesuits are well-known for their involvement in theology, education, missionary work and publishing with fervent focus on social justice and human rights.
