The Diocese of Rome has opened the process of the beatification and canonization of Father Pedro Arrupe, the 28th superior general of the Society of Jesus (SJ) or the Jesuits.
“We have seriously begun the process for the beatification of Fr Pedro Arrupe,” current Jesuit Superior General, Father Arturo Sosa announced at the meeting of the International Association of Jesuit Universities in Bilbao, Spain, on July 11.
Fr. Arturo Sosa said that Cardinal Angelo de Donatis, the Pope’s Vicar for the Diocese of Rome has given the approval to open the process of Fr. Arrupe’s beatification. The Jesuit general asked the attendees to pray for the cause and for the assistance of anyone who has useful information about the religious devotion to Fr. Arrupe.
