Catholic - Jesuit galaxy 2200 Clarke, Arthur C. "The Star " in The Hugo Winners: Volumes One and Two. (Isaac Asimov, ed.) Garden City, NY: Nelson Doubleday (1971; story copyright 1955); pg. 124. "It was, I think, the apparent incongruity of my position which . . . yes, amused . . . the crew. In vain I would point to my three papers in the Astrophysical Journal, my five in the Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society. I would remind them that our Order [Jesuits] has long been famous for its scientific works. We may be few now, but ever since the eighteenth century we have made our contributions to astronomy and geophysics out of all proportion to our numbers. "

"My colleagues have asked me that, and I have given what answers I can. Perhaps you could have done better, Father Loyola, but I have found nothing in the Exercitia Spiritualia that helps me. "
Catholic - Jesuit galaxy 2732 Simmons, Dan. Hyperion. New York: Doubleday (1989); pg. 26. "In another time, Father Paul Dure certainly would have become a bishop and perhaps a pope... Dure was a follower of St. Teilhard as well as an archaeologist, ethnologist, and eminent Jesuit theologian. Despite the decline of the Catholic Church into what amounted to a half-forgotten cult tolerated because of its quaintness and isolation from the mainstream of Hegemony life, Jesuit logic had not lost its bite. " [Many other references to Father Dure the Jesuit, and some references to Jesuits in general, in book, most not in DB.]
Catholic - Jesuit galaxy 2732 Simmons, Dan. Hyperion. New York: Doubleday (1989); pg. 64. [On the planet Hyperion.] Pg. 64: "This type of speculation is useless. I am beginning to get furious at my own lack of problem-solving skills. Let's form a strategy here and act on it, Paul. Get off your lazy, Jesuit ass. "; Pg. 79: "Forged in Jesuit logic and tempered in the cold bath of science... "
Catholic - Jesuit galaxy 2780 Simmons, Dan. The Fall of Hyperion. New York: Bantam (1991; 1st ed. 1990); pg. 108. "I cleared my throat. 'Didn't the Jesuit Paul Dure write extensively on the Teilhard hypothesis?'

Monsignor Edouard leaned forward and looked directly at me. There was surprise on that interesting face. 'Why yes,' he said, 'but I'm amazed that you're familiar with the work of Father Dure.'

I returned the gaze of the man who had been Dure's friend even while exiling the Jesuit to Hyperion for apostasy. I thought of another refugee from the New Vatican, young Lenar Hoyt [also a Jesuit]... lying dead in a Time Bomb while the cruciform parasites carrying the mutated DNA of both Dure and himself carried out their grim purpose of resurrection. " ['Jesuit' mentioned name also pg. 224, 237, 335, 466.]

Father Hoyt of the Society of Jesus has brought a vial of holy water blessed by His Holiness, a Eucharist consecrated in a Solemn High Mass, and a copy of the Church's ancient rite of exorcism. These things are forgotten now, sealed in a Perspex bubble in a pocket of his cloak. " [This is one of the main characters of the novel. Some other refs. to the Society of Jesus (Jesuits), not in DB.

Catholic - Jesuit galaxy 3099 Simmons, Dan. Endymion. New York: Bantam (1996); pg. 42. "De Soya avoids a sigh only by an effort of will. Legionaries of Christ had all but replaced the more liberal Jesuits over the centuries--their power had been growing in the Church a century before the Big Mistake--and it was no secret that the Pope used them as shock troops for difficult missions within the Church hierarchy.

'Priests chaste!' He rolled his eyes. 'Pity you weren't at the school my father forced me to attend as a boy. You could have so informed the Jesuits, who daily abused their innocent charges.'

'I, I cannot believe--'

'And what of him?' Voltaire talked right over her... " [Apparently a simulation based on Voltaire's Candide is being played.]

Catholic - Jesuit Idaho 2020 Dick, Philip K. & Roger Zelazny. Deus Irae. Garden City, NY: Doubleday (1976); pg. 121. "I can out-reason it [the computer], Pete thought, because I long ago acquired Jesuitical training; my religion helps me, now. In an odd but perilous place and time. So much for those who say theology is worthless from any practical standpoint. Those, the 'once-born,' as William James put it years ago. IN another world. "

"
Catholic - Jesuit Italy 2020 Watson, Ian. The Flies of Memory. New York: Carroll & Graf Publishers (1990); pg. 34. "The Pope's at Castel Gandolfo,' said Lew. 'His summer palace. That's usual. Got an observatory there. Maybe he's consulting his stronomers.'

Tarini dangled a red herring. 'Jesuits, those are. Jesuits aren' too popular with the hierarchy. Excessive support for Reds in Latin America.' "

Catholic - Jesuit Italy 2020 Watson, Ian. The Flies of Memory. New York: Carroll & Graf Publishers (1990); pg. 49. "As the hovering helicopter swung slowly on its axis rising from the lake they saw the alien pyramid.

Catholic - Jesuit Oklahoma 2040 Pohl, Frederik. Man Plus. New York: Random House (1976); pg. 56. "Don Kayman was a complex man who never let go of a problem. It was why we wanted him on the project as areologist, but it extended to the religious part of his life too. A religious problem was bothering him, in the corner of his mind. "; Pg. 57: "...he was not in any sense willing to flout the laws of his Church and his God. "
Catholic - Jesuit Oklahoma 2040 Pohl, Frederik. Man Plus. New York: Random House (1976); pg. 27-28. "Don Kayman was thirty-one years old and the world's most authoritative areologist (which is to say, specialist in the planet Mars)--at least in the Free World. (Kayman would have admitted that old Parnov at the Shklovskii Institute in Novosibirsk also knew a thing or two.) He was also a Jesuit priest. He did not think of himself as being one thing first and the other with what part of him was left over; his work was areology, his person was the priesthood. Meticulously and with joy he elevated the Host, drank the wine, said the final redempit, glanced at his watch and whistled. He was running late. He shed his robes in record time. He aimed a slap at the Chicano altar boy, who grinned and opened the door for him. " [Kayman is one of the main characters in the book. All refs. to him are not in DB.]
Catholic - Jesuit Philippines 1936 Thomsen, Brian M. "Infallibility, Obedience, and Acts of Contrition " in Alternate Tyrants (Mike Resnick, ed.) New York: Tor (1997); pg. 63-64. "In the past the numerous successors to Saint Peter had always chosen cardinals as their confessors, usually senior ones who had been stationed at the Vatican for quite some time, and who also functioned as church consuls, scholars, and advisors. Roncali had chosen McSherry, a Jesuit who at the time was stationed at an isolated mission in Bukidnon in the Philippines for this most confidential of all Vatican appointments... Had he been given any chance in the matter, McSherry would probably have declined 'the honor,' but he hadn't, and his vow of obedience and devotion to the pope (sworn by every Jesuit since Ignatius Loyola) made it impossible for him to refuse, for in all ways possible McSherry was a good Jesuit. " [Other refs. not in DB.]

"
Catholic - Jesuit Portugal 1600 Anthony, Patricia. God's Fires. New York: Ace Books (1997); pg. 77. [Year is estimated.] "'Porra! Am I not worthy? I have been damned by sniveling Dominicans and ass-licking Cistercians; and yet before each battle Jesuits petitioned God for me. What sort of father are you, who would turn his back on a son who disobeyed Rom for you, who slaughtered Spaniards when you asked? Damn you Jesuits to Hell for serving the Holy Office. For leading this country from one war to another...' "

I pictured the Marlboro man dressed up like Father Guido Sarducci,' George admitted in a whisper. "
Catholic - Jesuit United Kingdom: Britain 2051 Baxter, Stephen. Manifold: Time. New York: Ballantine (2000); pg. 455. "'A.D. 2051... That the British state is holding together at all, that it hasn't all lapsed into barbarism or chaos, is probably some kind of tribute to the basic British character. But the, just as the Brits were the first industrial society... Now they seem to be becoming the first truly post religious nation.

...Will the Brits survive? Will they tear each other apart? I find myself hoping they have a chance to grope their way out of this darkness, to find the end of their story, before the curtain falls on us all in a couple of hundred years--assuming it's all gloomily true, of course.

But maybe these are controversial views for a Jesuit. We are all, after all, missionaries.

I'm recommending that the Vatican fund further missions, a presence. We have to go in there and talk about God, as well as study this new phenomenon. But how much good it will do--or even what good means in this context--is hard to judge. "

Pg. 204: "'...that at this pace there'll be eighty million folk in Englnd by the year of Our Lord two thousand?'

'Yes, Your Holiness,' said the Jesuit, who was well enough aware, having himself supplied the figure to his master. 'Too many mouths to feed.' " [Apparently an unnamed Jesuit is part of a counsel. May be a few other refs, but Jesuits do not appear to have a prominent role in this very Catholic novel.]

Catholic - Jesuit USA 1978 King, Stephen. The Stand. Garden City, NY: Doubleday (1978); pg. 729. "'Maybe she was,' Glen said mildly. 'If you read your theology, you'll find that God often chooses to speak through the dying and the insane. It even seems to me--here's the closet Jesuit coming out--that there are good psychological reasons for it...' "
Catholic - Jesuit USA 1998 Atwood, Margaret. The Handmaid's Tale. Boston, MA: Houghton Mifflin (1986); pg. 201. "We go to the church, as usual, and look at the graves. Then to the Wall. Only two hanging on it today: one Catholic, not a priest though, placarded with an upside-down cross, and some other sect I don't recognize. The body is marked only with a J, in red. It doesn't mean Jewish, those would be yellow stars... So the J isn't for Jew. What could it be? Jehovah's Witness? Jesuit? Whatever it meant, he's just as dead. "
Catholic - Jesuit USA 2010 Stephenson, Neal. The Big U. New York: Random House (1984); pg. 117-118. "'Look,' Krupp continued. 'We've got a security force here. We've got organized religions that have been doing just fine for millennia. Now what we don't need is a brainwashing franchise, or any of your Kool-Aid-stoned outlaw Mormon Jesuits. I know times are hard in North Dakota, but they're hard everywhere, and it doesn't call for new religions. Of course, you have some very fine points on the subject of Communism. Now, this does not mean we will in any way fail to extend you full religious and politial freedoms as with the old-fashioned nonprofit religions.' "
Catholic - Jesuit USA 2050 Haldeman, Joe. Forever Peace. New York: Ace Books (1998; first ed. 1997); pg. 198.

"Once they had walked to the This Is The Place Monument and stood, looking down over the valley, the temple, the Capitol... she turned him away toward the monument.

The work of the Jesuit priest Andrea Pozzo shortly after 1685. Hats off to Fra Pozzo. No one had bothered to biuld the planned cupola, ocnsequently he had painted it in. The illusion was extraordinarily convincing; the alien gazed at it for the best part of an hour. Even Sister Kathinka exhausted her repertoire and stood mute. "
Catholic - Jesuit Vermont 1995 Hand, Elizabeth. Waking the Moon. New York: HarperPrism (1995); pg. 62. "A preparatory school in Vermont's Northeast Kingdom, run by an obscure order of brothers. Not Jesuits, Oliver was quick to explain; not Benedictines either. "

"Cardinal Simon Palestrina--of the Vatican Congregation of Extraordinary Ecclesiastical Affairs, and now de facto a legate to the Court of Novus Ordo...

Catholic - Jesuit world 2019 Russell, Mary Doria. The Sparrow. New York: Ballantine (1996); pg. 3. "It was predictable, in hindsight. Everything about the history of the Society of Jesus bespoke deft and efficient action, exploration and research. During what Europeans were pleased to call the Age of Discovery, Jesuit priests were never more than a year or two behind the men who made initial contact with previously unknown peoples; indeed, Jesuits were often the vanguard of exploration.

The U.N. required years to come to a decision that the Society of Jesus reached in ten days. In New York, diplomats debated long... whether & why human resources should be expended in an attempt to contact the world that would become known as Rakhat when there were so many pressing needs on Earth. In Rome, the questions were not whether or why but how soon the mission could be attempted and whom to send.

...The Jesuit scientists went to learn, not to proselytize... " [This book is well known for being about 'Jesuits in space.' Jesuits are the primary focus throughout.]

Catholic - Jesuit world 2060 Russell, Mary Doria. The Sparrow. New York: Ballantine (1996); pg. 49.

Catholic - Jesuit world 2100 Sanders, Winston P. "The Word to Space " (first published 1960) in Other Worlds, Other Gods: Adventures in Religious Science Fiction (Mayo Mohs, ed.) Garden City, NY: Doubleday (1971); pg. 80. Editor's description of the story: "The clergy in religious science fiction seem often to fare as badly as the clergy in mainstream fiction, emerging most frequently as pleasant caricatures. Such, I'm afraid, is the fate of Father James Moriarty, S.J., the Jesuit geologist who here sets out to do a bit of ingenious (and insidious) missionary work in interstellar communications. Author Winston Sanders, moreover--like most of his colleagues--seems to have had a bit more troubling extrapolating the Roman Catholic Church than other aspects of his future society; some assumptions ('a Jesuit couldn't transfer himself casually') already seem almost anachronistic. Yet Sanders' tale is not only engaging but reasonably credible. Just what does one do when the first interstellar radio contact inundates the circuit with alien religious broadcasts? Among other things, as Sanders effectively demonstrates, one might consult a Jesuit. "
Catholic - Jesuit world 2100 Sanders, Winston P. "The Word to Space " (first published 1960) in Other Worlds, Other Gods: Adventures in Religious Science Fiction (Mayo Mohs, ed.) Garden City, NY: Doubleday (1971); pg. 88. "'In spite of what non-Catholics think, the Church is not a monolithic dictatorship, even in matters of faith.

'Yes,' he replied. 'I designed it. It's for the Sinieux.'

'Do you know what's happened to us?'

'We have fallen into hell,' he said. 'My Jesuit professors warned me of it.'

'Not far wrong,' I said. 'Do you know why?'

'I do not question my punishments.'

'We're not being punished--at least, not by God or devils.'

He shrugged. It was a moot point.'

'I'm from Earth,' too,' I said. 'From Terre.'

...'But I don't think it's the same Earth. What year are you from?' Since he'd mentioned Jesuits, he almost had to use the standard Christian Era dating.

'Year of Our Lord 2345,' he said.

Sonok crossed himself elegantly. 'For me 2290,' he added. "

Catholic - Jesuit world 3001 Clarke, Arthur C. 3001: The Final Odyssey. New York: Ballantine (1997); pg. 136. "'...The Jesuits claimed: 'Give me a boy for six years, and he is mine for life.' If they got hold of little Chandra in time, he'd have been a devout Catholic--not a Hindu.' "

'I was born in India. My grandparents were killed by Hindus in a riot following the death of dictator Indira Gandhi. My surviving family fled to Rawalpindi, in Pakistan.'
