By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
This collection of writings from Pedro Arrupe captures the spirit of the saintly man. His personal account of living through the bombing of Hiroshima on the feast of the Transfiguration is stunning. The book offers much for meditation and prayer.

A great and humble man 3 May 2010
By Patricia L. Marks - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I was impressed with this rendering of the life and thought of Pedro Arrupe, past Father General of the Jesuits. He is often compared to St. Ignatius, the Jesuit founder.Perhaps this spiritual kinship is well-deserved . I found the chapter on Hiroshima one of the most moving I have ever read. This little book is well worth reading.
Be careful, too much indifference leads to nothingness, 16 Mar. 2015

Pedro Arrupe was a doctor and survivor of the Hiroshima bombing in August 1945. His dramatic experiences of the American bombing is given to us in detail, from the instant flashes to the ruins and his participation in the helping of the bomb victims., This experience prepared him to enter the Society of Jesus, better known in America as the Jesuits, teaching us to be humble and compassionate.

Pedro Arrupe who was the Superior General to the Society of Jesus,(founded by Ignatius Loyola around 1522) from 1965-1983 gives us an account of his call to the society. "Ignatius was a man who received from God the special grace of grasping the mystical quintessence of the Gospel." . "The following can never be a matter of law only, it must flow from genuine intimacy with Christ and a desire to follow him in everything." Pedro Arrupe

Most of the writings in this book come from his addressing his fellow Jesuits and encouraging them in creating and shaping society to the Omega Point. Placing them in solidarity with the poor and the weak. Through the Jesuits the incarnation of Christ is present. " We must learn to "be" more and "have" less. We must learn what is "enough" to have. We are to be the message of love and liberation in the cause of the poor, the cause of justice. God's cause through Jesus Christ, through us. We are the bearer of hope to the world." Pedro Arrupe.

One can picture Pope Francis at many of these conferences. Pope Francis is leading us in the same direction as Ignatius Loyola and Pedro Arrupe.

In 1981 Pedro Arrupe suffered a very debilitating stroke and left his post as Superior General. In his last address in 1983, he issues forth a prayer to the Holy Spirit "Come Holy Spirit". "I desire your profound action in my soul, not only that you descend but that you repose in me and gift me the gifts of wisdom, intelligence, counsel, strength, knowledge of God. Transform me, inspire me, give me sensibility and fidelity." (Eph 3: 5-14)
