(NB – Interesting timing for this announcement. We will watch closely for additional updates.)
Fr. Adolfo Nicolas, superior general of the Jesuits, announced his intention to resign in late 2016 after he turns 80.
“Reflecting on the coming years, I have reached the personal conviction that I should take the needed steps toward submitting my resignation to a general congregation,” Nicolas said in a letter dated May 20 and sent to Jesuits around the world.
Nicolas, who was elected in 2008, said he already has discussed the idea with Pope Francis — a Jesuit — with officials at the Jesuit headquarters and with Jesuit provincials around the world.
“The result of the consultation is favorable toward the convening of a general congregation,” he said.
