Item description for Pedro Arrupe: Essential Writings (Modern Spiritual Masters Series) by Pedro Arrupe & Kevin F. Burke...
Overview Pedron Arrupe (1907-1991), a Basque Jesuit, was the superior general of the Society of Jesus from 1965 until his death. In the twenty-six years of his service he oversaw a renewal of the Jesuits so profound that he is revered by many in the Society as a 'second founder.' It was Arrupe who was instrumental in promoting a new identity for the Jesuits in the direction of an option for the poor. The readings here, beginning with his shattering eye-witness account of the atomic bombing of Hiroshima, reveal a profound faith, deep compassion for a suffering world, and an almost mystical devotion to the figure of Jesus.

Great selections from Fr. Arrupe! Dec 16, 2008
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.
