Pope Francis appears to be changing the face of Roman Catholicism. He has infused what some consider a staid institution with openness and optimism. He has faced off against established power interests within the Vatican. He has reformed the Church's finances. And, most importantly, he has asked that Catholics approach one another and non-Catholics with candor, humility, and love. He has made the papacy and the Church relevant once again.

A pope of the people, Pope Francis' teachings have been praised and shared by the faithful and nonreligious alike. Exploring themes such as faith and prayer, love and family, peace and poverty, this collection is accessible to all who admire the man and are inspired by his wisdom. Included in this gift-format edition are fifteen chapters on wide-ranging topics including:
  • On Family
  • On the Law of Love
  • On the Nature of God
  • On Humility and Faith
  • On Sacrifice and Suffering
  • On Prayer
  • On Peace

You have in your heart a promise of hope. You are bearers of hope. You, in fact, live in the present, but are looking at the future. You are the protagonists of the future, artisans of the future. --POPE FRANCIS


Andrea Kirk Assaf has covered three pontificates for Inside the Vatican magazine and several other news outlets. She divides her time between Rome and Remus, Michigan.
