Remembering Arrupe

I’ve read much about Pedro Arrupe, the legendary superior general of the Jesuits from 1965-83.  Much of his greatness seems to have resided in his charisma.  People loved him and wanted to follow him–much like I imagine Ignatius to have been.  A new video produced to mark the 20th anniversary of Arrupe’s death this month captures this quality of the man very well.  It’s a remembrance by Vincent O’Keefe, SJ, who worked closely with him, along with some fine archival footage.  (If you can’t see the video, click here.)
