Society of Jesus

Spaniard St. Ignatius of Loyola founded the Society of Jesus in 1548, with the goal of establishing a group of men under the Pope’s service to go where they were needed.

As with other religious orders they take a vow of poverty, chastity and obedience. But the Jesuits add a fourth, to serve the Pope, whomever it may be.
