One gets the sense that members of the Society of Jesus are frequently given to lauding sociology, psychology... astrology?... any-ology above theology when orthodox theology should be the subject that dominates the Christian disciple's imagination.
A generalized criticism must admit exceptions. Exceptions which, nevertheless, tend to prove the rule.
The Church has high expectations of her children because Jesus Himself has high expectations for His disciples. The Sacrament of Matrimony is a restoration of the dignity of marriage, not a relaxation. If there is any doubt as to the deficit which adulterous second "unions" introduce into a person's life, read the Gospel texts and you will discover both the dignity to which a man and a woman is called as well as a diagnosis of the consequences should they choose to pursue a course which takes them away from God and His design for marriage.
We have seen how a major synod was sullied by attempts to excuse the sin of man and release him from keeping the commandments of Jesus Christ. The problem is not that the Church is asking too much of her citizens. The problem is that too many in the Church are robbing her citizens of the knowledge of grace that God provides to those who love Him, grace which ennobles man and enables in man the Gospel alive.
Christianity is not belief in an ideal. Rather, by grace, the Christian path—the Way—is immersion in the Person and Passion of Jesus Christ. Christianity, especially Catholicism, is not a belief system; the Catholic Faith is a way of life—the Way to life.
Now, one could counter that there are many avenues of approach to the Person of Jesus Christ. True enough. However, that said, the true disciple has the privilege of relating not to an idea or some avenue or some brilliant interpretation of the Gospel but to the Person of Jesus Christ as one finds Him—first and foremost—in the Holy Eucharist which, if it needs to be repeated for the umpteenth time, Catholics defend rather tenaciously as the "source and summit of the Christian life".
Modern mercy of the "progressive" flavour, mercy which is not really merciful, blesses sinful lifestyles and enables people to avoid making a decision for Christ and His Church which thus disposes the soul to the gift of grace that God offers to the penitent soul. If the word 'accompaniment' is to be redeemed from liberal religion, if accompaniment means anything, then it means accompanying people by helping them confront sin in their lives. A clear call to holiness helps sinners realize they are loved by God and that God wants them to move closer to Him by rejecting sin in their lives. Only a clear recognition that sin leads to death will help a sinner leave sin and embrace the path of spiritual health in Christ.
Certainly, the Jesuits were once upon a time fine instruments of the Holy Spirit, during the Counter Reformation (CR), for example. However, the Jesuits of the CR would probably barely recognize their modern brethren by the way they have become more the Society of Just-About-Anybody-Other-Than-Jesus than being faithful in the liberating communion with Jesus Christ which changed a mere soldier into a soldier for Christ.
The Jesuit mind, it seems, is today rarely a warrior's mind possessed completely by the Incarnate Word of God that is moved to save souls.
If experience is teaching the Church anything, perhaps the Cardinal-electors of the Holy Roman Church will be disinclined to elect another Jesuit any time soon to the Office of Peter. A Jesuit is best confined to that position of Praepositus Generalis recently filled—the nicknamed office of the Black Pope.
