Sunday is the anniversary of the death of Pedro Arrupe, SJ, superior general of the Jesuits from 1965-83. He was a charismatic man who led the Jesuits through a difficult time of transition. After he suffered a debilitating stroke he wrote this wonderful prayer:
More than ever I find myself in the hands of God. This is what I have wanted all my life from my youth. But now there is a difference; the initiative is entirely with God. It is indeed a profound spiritual experience to know and feel myself so totally in God’s hands.
You can read about Arrupe here. This video is the first in a series produced by Georgetown University. The first couple of minutes show his very poignant farewell in 1983. (Click here to watch it on YouTube.)
