In the words of one historian: "The use of the name Jesus gave great offense.Both on the Continent and in England, it was denounced as blasphemous; petitions were sent to kings and to civil and ecclesiastical tribunals to have it changed; and even Pope Sixtus V had signed a Brief to do away with it." But nothing came of all the opposition; there were already congregations named after the Trinity and as "God's daughters".Jesuits also give retreats, minister in hospitals and parishes, sponsor direct social ministries, and promote ecumenical dialogue.
Jesuits work in education (founding schools, colleges, universities, and seminaries), intellectual research, and cultural pursuits.
Their average age was 57.3 years: 63.4 years for priests, 29.9 years for scholastics, and 65.5 years for brothers.
The current Superior General of the Jesuits is Arturo Sosa.
The society is characterized by its ministries in the fields of missionary work, human rights, social justice and, most notably, higher education.
It operates colleges and universities in various countries around the world and is particularly active in the Philippines and India.
