30th Superior General of the Society of Jesus (2008-2016)
In a letter to the whole Society of Jesus announcing the death of his predecessor, Fr. Arturo Sosa, S.J., current Superior General of the Society of Jesus, described Fr. Nico (as many of us called him) as “a wise, humble, and free man; totally and generously given to service; moved by those who suffer in the world, but at the same time overflowing with hope drawn from his faith in the Risen Lord; an excellent friend, who loved to laugh and to make others laugh; a man of the Gospel. It is a blessing to have known him.”
I make Fr. Sosa’s words my own as I am very grateful for the three years I was privileged to have lived and worked with Fr. Nico in Rome. He was a great example and inspiration for what a Jesuit can and should be. Please remember him and the whole Society of Jesus in your prayers.
