Pedro Arrupe, a Basque Jesuit, was superior general of the Society of Jesus from 1965 until 1983. He was instrumental in promoting a new mission for the Jesuits in terms of "faith that does justice." The readings here, beginning with his shatering eye-witness account of the bombing of Hiroshima, reveal profound faith, deep compassion, and an almost mystical devotion to Jesus.
