Father General Arturo Sosa

Born in Venezuela in 1948, Father Sosa is the first Latin American Superior General of the Society of Jesus, the largest religious order of priests and brothers in the Catholic Church with more than 16,000 members.

Raised in a Catholic family that valued academics, he was encouraged to “to open up to the world, to study languages.” He speaks three languages and is passionate about the need for multiculturalism because “the true face of God is multicultural, multicolored and multifaceted. … If the Society succeeds in reflecting this diversity, it will become an expression of that fascinating face of God.
