Pedro Arrupe, S.J., was the Superior General of the Society of Jesus from 1961-1984. His visionary leadership and compassionate spirit left a legacy treasured by the Society of Jesus and all those serving in Jesuit works around the world.
He is attributed with the following quote:
"Nothing is more practical than finding God, that is, than falling in love in a quite absolute, final way.
What you are in love with, what seizes your imagination, will affect everything. It will decide what will get you out of bed in the morning, what you will do with your evenings, how you will spend your weekends, what you read, who you know, what breaks your heart, and what amazes you with joy and gratitude.
Fall in love, stay in love and it will decide everything."
