Father General: Interview with The Jesuit Post


Our colleagues at The Jesuit Post have just posted a terrific five-part interview with Adolfo Nicolás, SJ, the Superior General of the Society of Jesus, which was recorded at the Magis celebrations in Brazil.  This fascinating series touches on youth ministry, silence, vocations, new and social media, and Pope Francis.  Here is Father General speaking about his "easy" relationship with the Holy Father.  "I have to confess I find it very easy to communicate with him.  I speak with him like I would speak with any other Jesuit, knowing that he is not going to misunderstand me.  I don't have to measure my words.  I can speak totally freely."
