    My dad spent time living in catholic school as a kid....the Oblates ran it....he ended up quite messed up from the abuse.....he had a grudging respect for Jesuits though....Jesuits were on the other side of the river in this city....Oblates on pop's side....

    The Oblates studied for 2 years & got their priest papers as it were, the Jesuits for at least 7.....very scholarly.....

    It's just a different order of the catholic church is all.....

    I used to hear about these two orders all the time at the dinner table & from time to time in drunken rants as a kid.....I'm sure there are more, but this is just from my personal knowledge....

    A member of the Society of Jesus.

    Ignatius Loyola, a Spanish knight from a local noble family and others founded the Society of Jesus. It is a Roman Catholic order of priests.

    Sometimes referred to as "God's Army" since Loyola was a military guy.

    It's a sect of Catholicism. That's all. I hadn't realized that Catholics had lots of sects, but they do.
