  1. Jesuits elect non-European leader for first time.... (....)
    Fr Arturo, who was Venezuelan Provincial from 1996 to 2004, was generally critical of the Hugo Chávez regime. Speaking in 2003, he commented: “The great historical weakness of the Chaváz government is the enormous distance between its words and its deeds. One can have affinity with what Chávez says, but the distance between that which is said, is done, and how it is done, is very great.”

    1. This guy's political genus will sure come in handy in the coming shaking of the world political scene.

    2. Indeed in Infiltraciones Jesuitas some other interesting info [once I had done a post about, today I believe the Geo-political/religious phase surpassed. Faith in God is all I need, no man no organization can separate me from the love of God]

      The 'black pope' has a red past. Besides being a man of faith, Venezuelan Arturo Marcelino Sosa Abascal, new Superior General of the Society of Jesus, is a brilliant political scientist who came to be investigated for its alleged support for coups led by the late Hugo Chavez in 1992 .

      The first non-European to lead the congregation founded by St. Ignatius of Loyola 500 years ago, was born in Caracas on November 12, 1948 and is the oldest of six siblings.

      From a relevant family of Caracas society, his father, Arturo Sosa, was a member of the Governing Board that was installed after the fall of the dictatorship of General Marcos Perez Jimenez in 1958 and finance minister between 1982 and 1984, during the Social Christian administration of President Luis Herrera Campins.
      etc etc.

    3. ".......In an article published in the magazine SIC Gumilla Center in September 1999, the then superior of the Society of Jesus in Venezuela expressed its support to the National Constituent Assembly, Chavez aupada initiative. In that text he reflected that "personal leadership has exercised Hugo Chavez in recent months, due to the absence of mature citizens leaderships, has served as a retaining wall to the strong and growing driving currents of anomie and anarchy in Venezuelan society ".

    4. In most media he is depicted as critical of the Chavez regime, but some mention he mediated Chavez' release in 1992 and negotiated the release of some prisoners in 1989

    5. This guy looks and feels very similar to Francis, deeply involved in the political turmoil of S. America,

    6. Typical feature of Jesuits, the "foot in two shoes", create subversion & rebellion, use 'em and then discharge 'em. I guess why Jesuits allowed two of their brotherhood's member to be tortured, killed etc.... One reason could it be that the lowest rank of their order, have the task to carry out some duties un-aware of the greatest scheme on their head:

      While Argentina rang with celebratory church bells at the news of the first Latin American pope, some were seized by doubt and confusion. "I can't believe it, I don't know what to do, I'm in so much anguish and so enraged," wrote Graciela Yorio in an email published in the Argentine press on Thursday morning.

      In 1976, her brother, Orlando Yorio, along with another Jesuit priest, Francisco Jalics, were seized by navy troops in the slums of Buenos Aires and held and tortured for five months at the ESMA camp, a navy base in the capital where 5,000 people were murdered by the military junta.

      The two priests served under Bergoglio, who is accused in some quarters of abandoning them to the military after they became involved in leftist social movements.

      His chief accuser is journalist Horacio Verbitsky, whose book El Silencio paints a disquieting picture of Bergoglio's relationship with the priests who sought his protection when they felt their lives were in danger from the military because of their social work in the slums.
