Ok, we may not agree on this.
History, mostly from 18th century books, as well as some newer ones.
It seems the Loyola’s ‘spiritual exercises’ is expressed in much of the ever so popular monastic and contemplative spirituality of today, which I find somewhat mystical and strange. It also seems COG/TF/TFI spirituality has embraced this school ever since.
This spirituality has little basis in the scriptures.
Ever since DB (father david) abrogated the biblical standard of the ten commandments, with the childish intent that he thereby also could abolish the sins connected thereby, he fell heavily. Jesuitical theology – and vatican dogma in general - also puts itself above the laws of God in the same manner. To address someone as ‘Father’ is exclusively Catholic. The COG, as a movement, sought to receive, and did received, a papal blessing.
This topic is very interesting, imo, and namely it’s post reformation history is documented extensively esp in these older books.
