The Society of Jesus (Jesuits) are hold their chapter meeting in Spain right now, held once every 6 years, and of course the topic of the new Instruction is dominating conversations.
The Third World provincials don’t know why the American and European provincials are making a big fuss. The Europeans think America in general is puritanical. And the Americans are busy convincing the Minister-General that the Instruction is “non-pastoral” and open to “discernment” such that the provinces won’t have to actually implement it and they can continue with the status quo ante.
