Pedro Arrupe, Chosen by God: Pedro Arrupe's Retreat Notes 1965, translated with and introduction by Joseph A. Munitiz SJ
Two months after his election as Superior General of the Society of Jesus, in the summer of 1965, Pedro Arrupe went on retreat. During his retreat Arrupe kept a notebook of personal jottings, which give direct testimony to the God who is passing through his life, and to what is going on within him as God passes. More than any other document this notebook reflects his state of mind when he received his mission as General and when, with complete confidence in God, he opened himself up to fulfilling it without reserve or delay. In it we see him developing schemes, thinking about people, and elaborating strategies in order to confront the challenges that the Church and the world have put before him.
This unique manuscript was authorised for publication by Fr Arrupe’s successor as General, Fr Peter-Hans Kolvenbach, and was published in Spanish in a faithfully transcribed and annotated edition by Fr Ignacio Iglesias SJ. It has now been translated so that English-speaking readers can share the rich interior life of this prophet of the twentieth century whose intuitions and initiatives are still vital and relevant today. These pages show how clearly and passionately Pedro Arrupe was a man of God.
