"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."
Spontaneous words to a group of religious sisters, words among Pedro Arrupe's most famous. A Jesuit priest, and for many years was the Superior General of the Jesuit order-the Society of Jesus. His life story of heroic leadership and sheer goodness give witness of a man who found God in a broken world and who learned to trust love and found God in others.
