Fr. Adolfo Nicolás: in memoriam

21/05/2020

The General Curia of the Society of Jesus in Rome has reported that the former Superior General, Fr. Adolfo Nicolás, died on May 20, in Tokyo, Japan. In the words of Fr. Arturo Sosa, current Superior General of the Society of Jesus and President of the USG, Fr. Adolfo was " a man of grace and wisdom, simple, unpretentious, devoted".

Father Adolfo, who served as Superior General from 2008 to 2016, was a member of the USG Executive Council from 2009 and President from 2013 to 2015.

In memory of Fr. Adolfo we offer the interview that Fr. Antonio Spadaro did to him in 2016, shortly before the celebration of the 36th General Congregation, in which he presented his resignation. In a simple and natural way, Fr. Nicolás tells us about religious life, which "is going well", and about other topics that were very dear to him.
