As a Jesuit-educated student for most of my education, I appreciate you giving credit to the order for its scholarly pursuits and missionary outreach. (See: "Will Pope Francis transcend the initial symbolism of his selection," March 15)

What I take issue with is your reference to Gonzaga as a men's basketball powerhouse. Xavier University, a Jesuit university in Cincinnati, is a better fit for that moniker.

By way of a disclaimer, I guess I should mention that I not only graduated from Xavier but also played basketball for the university. Either way, it's a big day for the Jesuits.
