he Catholic Church welcomes a new pope into power as Pope Benedict XVI steps down. The process began just a few weeks back on February 28th, when a conclave of cardinals gathered at The Vatican. The decision to appoint Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio was unanimous after two days, as the white smoke bellowed out of the chimney. Cardinal Bergoglio is from Buenos Ares, Argentina and adds uniqueness as a leader of the Catholic Church by being the first Jesuit pope, “I think he is going to add a freshness that is needed, I am very excited for the future and have faith in his leadership skills because he is so humble,” said Father Grubb. Some people were hoping for an Italian pope to be elected, but because that did not happen, it is stated that Cardinal Bergoglio chose his name to be Pope Francis of Assisi. “Having a new pope is always a big change,” said senior sacristan Chris Pozzi. “Change can be scary but I believe that the cardinals chose Pope Francis for a reason and look forward to the future, positive changes he will make to the church.” The cardinals choose

Pope Francis because of his concentration on the poor and his qualities of humility and tenderness. Pope Francis stated that he would continue to uphold the Churches beliefs but to also focus on the increasing amount of people suffering in Latin countries. Because he is from Argentina, he has first hand experiences of the suffering people needing hope and support, “I think that because he is so focused on those impoverished, he will really bring the church back to its roots,” said senior sacristan Jessica Wyatt. He believes that even though the population might be rising in these countries, so is the number of impoverished. Pope Francis plans to address those people suffering and turn some of the attention on those people for the church to help. The new pope has already begun his service to the people. As of March 31, he visited a youth detention center in Rome, where he participated in a cleansing of the feet. On Easter, Pope Francis, in the Urbi et Orbi address, called out to everyone about equalizing people all over the world. Pope Francis stated the importance of the growing peace in the world and how he will devote his life to this mission of the church.

quently asked questions is, “What is so wrong about sexting?” According to “www.”, 33 percent of all high-school-aged children have been involved in a form of nude sexting, along with 11 percent of girls under 13 years old. This in itself is horrifying and awful. Not only has sexting been popular among adults, it’s even more popular among children of the high-school ages (14-18). Especially with students at Jesuit, and friends of those who attend Jesuit. “I know plenty of people who have been involved with (sexting) at Jesuit, especially kids who go to public schools,” said sophomore Logan Scroggy. The consequences of sexting can be severe, ranging from embarrassment to imprisonment or worse. Explicit photos or videos forwarded from person to person can cause embarrassment for the original sender. Many teens don’t realize that once they hit “send,” control of who else sees that compromising photo is now completely up to the recipient. You may think you know your

his year’s varsity lacrosse team started off with young players shaping the team. After losing seventeen seniors last year, the team took on new players with ranging grade levels. Six freshmen joined the team, including starting attack Eli Rajoette and part-time goalie Arie Abrams. The freshmen on the team show diligence and talent, along with four sophomores. “The freshmen are working out well,” said Coach Joe Corbitt. “They bring with them their willingness to contribute and their eagerness to develop at the varsity level.” Not only is this year’s team young, but so is the men’s lacrosse program as a whole. While the sport has only been around for six years, it carries many great victories and much evident talent in its short history. Last year the team took third in the state after being defeated by in the quarterfinals Lakeridge, the second best team in the state. They are the

it would have more structure, but I like how a lot of the responsibility is now on me.” Penson is right on the fact that 19 coaches can only keep track of a limited amount of athletes. One of the coaches’ main goals is to try and instill a sense of responsibility into the students. “I love how my friends and I can just run freely on our own time and with our own pace,” said sophomore Amy Olyaei. Coaches still expect the best out of every athlete. Athletes have to make it to every practice for each event they are signed up for. “Whether it is raining, snowing or hailing we coaches will be out here ready to train no matter what,” said head coach Tom Rothenberger. Even people with in-

administration decided that weighting our grades for honors and AP classes would be more beneficial to get scholarships. The school’s lack of weighted grades put us at disadvantages to get enough money from different organizations because our grades were not able to stand up against other applicants. This is how it works: if someone takes an honors class, .03 is added to the student’s grade at the end of the semester, and if a student takes an AP class, .07 will be added their grade. This will make the scholarships more tangible for students who have chosen a rigorous schedule and need help going to college. Weighting grades will also encourage students to push themselves and not just slide through high school without beefing up their schedule. “The advantages of weighted grading encourage students to take rigorous classes, allow school systems to offer more challenging courses, increase a student’s GPA, higher class ranking for students, students are more competitive; better chance for scholarships and higher self-esteem,” said Kim Blakesley of Yahoo Contributors. With all the stress of high school, giving students

er classes.” Also, Jesuit uses a college-like grading system where an A- is 3.7 instead of a 4.0. The new weighted grades system is the way that we can be on the same playing field as public school students and other schools with the more mainstream grading system. Colleges will look at both your weighted and unweighted GPAs, but they will not look at a student’s weighted GPA when comparing them to other students. The fact is that colleges will see if someone challenges themselves in comparison to other students. “As a senior, it would have been nice to have weighted grades because they do not look at weighted versus unweighted,” said senior Austin Quinlan. “Students look equal to students who have a higher GPA and who didn’t take the harder classes.” If someone were to ask, do weighted grades matter? The answer is yes. When schools provide weighted grades, students become more motivated to push themselves, and this will be beneficial when applying for college. Colleges will see that someone challenges themselves versus other students, even if their unweighted grades are not as high as students who didn’t challenge themselves.

Weighted grades help too little and hurt too much


suit had previously initiated the weight grade scale. Some seniors who have worked hard to get good grades in regular classes seem troubled by the concept of the weighted scale. “I understand the weighted scale, but I do not see the fairness in only reward-

ing some students for academic achievements,” said senior Shannon O’Mara. In weighing the pros and cons (pun intended), it is easy to see that the new weighted scale is not an accurate way of measuring students ability and capability, rather praises students for taking hard classes.

icture this: a beautiful blonde Spanish boy and a charming woman enjoying conversation over some UU Yogurt. Well, this is no dream. It’s reality, thanks to the Journalism Class. The suave journalism students have done it again; we created a beautiful date that sent two Jesuit students home with butterflies in their tummies. Sophomore A r c h d u k e Jordi Kellogg XXIII and junior Jordan Lee Fleshman were both informed earlier this month that they had been selected to go on a blind date for the Jesuit Crusader. O n the first day back from spring break, Jordi and Jordan made their way over to UU after school to meet for the blind date. Senior Maddie Rice and junior James Wisniewski were waiting there to make sure things went smoothly and that no one would get hurt. The two were shocked to the see the other there, but made small talk while concocting their frozen yogurt dishes. Jordan made her way to an open table, and Jordi kindly informed her that the couch would work as well;). Little did Jordan know, but Jordi had a way with words when it came

Colorado and also commented on how tan Jordan looked and inquired where she went. “I went to the Oregon Coast…. but with my boyfriend,” responded Jordan. At this point in the date, things got extremely awkward, but Rice and Wisniewski believed the situation was saved when Jordan began to uncontrollably laugh. Unfortunately for this lover boy it just made things worse. So like any good gentleman, Jordi changed the subject and moved on. The two bonded over their mutual love of soccer and the fact that their names sound kind of alike sometimes. Jordan commented that her younger sister sometimes called her Jordy, and this made Jordi feel a little bit better. Jordi looked up at the clock and was amazed that six hours had passed since he arrived at UU for the blind date. The two had such an amazing time together that they completely lost track of time. Jordi stood up and threw away the trash, like a good gentleman, and pulled out Jordan’s chair for her. Jordan arose and gave Jordi the biggest hug of all time saying, “This is the fourth best date I’ve ever been on!” “I had a swell time too!” Jordi agreed. On the way out of the store, Jordi and Jordan decided that something could have
