Irish Jesuit priest Fr. Michael O’Sullivan is the director of the Dublin-based Spirituality Institute for Research & Education (SpIRE) and is prominent in the field of spirituality studies in higher education and the professions. But he is known also for his work for human rights and social justice. Here he recalls his time as a pastor in Chile in the 1980s. That country was then ruled by General Pinochet, whose military dictatorship had overthrown the constitutional government of Salvador Allende in 1973. O’Sullivan also discusses his time later in El Salvador and Nicaragua in Central America.
