CWN Editor's Note: On March 25, Pope Francis received 80 parents of Spanish Jesuits and recalled that “although initially his mother did not share his vocational choice, she wanted to accompany him along with his father on the long journey made by bus,” the Vatican newspaper reported. The future Pontiff was an archdiocesan seminarian went he entered the Jesuit order in 1958.
In his talk, the Pope encouraged parents to welcome their children’s choices. The Pope also referred to three of the Society’s superiors-general—Father Wlodimir Ledóchowski (who governed the Society from 1915 to 1942), Father Jean-Baptiste Janssens (1946 to 1964), and Father Arrupe (1965 to 1983)—and said that Father Arrupe led “a renewal and a relaxation of the rigid discipline that characterized” the Jesuits, according to the newspaper’s summary of the Pope’s remarks.The above note supplements, highlights, or corrects details in the original source (link above).

Too bad he’s not a pope from an Augustinian order.
Know I understand why he hates the church...
Who would know better than a mother about his true character?
“My son the bouncer wants to be Pope. You’re killing your father.”
Will you just watch the hair?
You know, I work on my hair a long time and you hit it.
He hits my hair.
Take care of his hair. I’m gonna take a walk.
Tony, you walk me to church later?
Didn’t you go already today?
Yeah, confession. I gotta go back and pray for something.
I gotta pray for Father Frank, Jr. to call me.
LINDA: Why don’t you call him direct?
I want him to call me. A son should call his mother.
Wait a minute. You’re going to church to have God make Frank, Jr. call you?
Right. I don’t believe it.
You know, you’re turning God into a telephone operator.
Pope Francis’ mother should have been Pope.
Lol I’m glowing’ in the dark, give you warning’
