Jesuit Superior General Luis Martín García and His Memorias:
Special Order - Subject to Availability


Fr. Luis Mart n Garc a was superior general of the Society of Jesus during one of the most fractious periods in western history, from 1892 to his death in 1906. Fortunately for both the church and his order, he was endowed with remarkable gifts of mind and spirit. He was also troubled with personal challenges that he had to face almost entirely on his own. As an aid, he kept a memoir, prodigious in both size and content, to be published posthumously. The memoir appeared in a critical Spanish edition in 1988. In this present book, David Schultenover provides a condensed English version of it along with an interpretation that engages the question, why would a Jesuit superior general leave to posterity such a candid memoir? The subtitle "Showing Up" provides a clue.
