Why might this man be declared a saint? Pedro Arrupe, twenty-eighth superior General fo the Society of Jesus, re-founded the Jesuits and re-cast Ignatian spirituality for our times. He was a prisoner of Imperial Japan, a first responder when the atom bomb fell on Hiroshima, a pioneer of Catholic social justice and a founder of the Jesuit Refugee Service. Few people - outside religious life - know his story. But now that the process for his beatification is underway, he is sure to become known across the Catholic world and beyond. Best-selling author Brian Grogan SJ, whose life has been deeply influenced by Arrupe, has written this short biography. With a foreword by Peter McVerry SJ, this booklet is a succinct account of Arrupe's life, 1907-1991 and highlights his dynamic influence on the church of today as it labours to build a civilisation of justice and love.
