A month for remembering

February may be the shortest month of the year, but that doesn’t keep it from being a rather significant span of time for remembering great Jesuits of the past. The Feast of Pedro Arrupe, S.J., the 28th Superior General of the Society of Jesus, left, was celebrated on Feb. 5, the 20-year anniversary of his death. Also in February, we celebrate eight of the 50 Jesuit saints. In fact, more Jesuit saints are liturgically memorialized in February than any other month.
