The qualities that pope Frances possesses is wisdom, simplicity and he is very humble towards people going threw poverty. Jesuit means that they are missionary that spread the word of catholicism. I think this picture shows a Jesuit preaching the word of God to a group of people.

(Continuation) The motto of the Jesuits is Ad majorem Dei gloriam ("to the greater glory of God"). The Jesuits are a group that was started in August 15,1534 by St. Ignatius of Loyola. He was born on December 24, 1491 and he died on July 31, 1556. He was a soldier fighting the French. His soldier days ended when a canon ball hit his leg and broke it. In his free time he started to become very interested in the Catholic religion. In university he created a group called the Jesuit or the company of Jesus. He travelled to Rome with six companions to get approval for their order (Jesuit). Pope Paul II officially permitted them to be ordained priest on September 27, 1540.

Pope Francis is said to possess the qualities of simplicity and wisdom. He also shows that being the Pope isn't getting to his head. He isn't showing that he is stuck up or haughty. The Jesuit motto is "Ad Majorem Dei Gloriam," (a Latin phrase). It means "for the greater glory of God." The picture is of a Jesuit priest preaching to a group of Indians. One of the above sites says that " The Jesuits were often the only thing that saved the Indians from slavery".
