EWTN Errors...

It seems to be the fashion in the Catholic Blogosphere to spot errors on the EWTN Questions and Answers. Most surprising of all is the blunder of Fr. Robert J Levis who claims that in Latin I doubt whether the name "Jesus" can be declined. It remains "Jesus".
Now, I've seen it argued that in Latin 'Jesus'/'Iesus' is either wholly irregular or a very irregular 4th Declension noun. Whichever one decides, it should be obvious to anyone with a smattering of Church Latin that 'Jesus' is declinable
Per Dominum nostrum Iesum Christum
Cor Iesu
Societas Iesu
Ad Iesum, per Mariam...
