Pope Francis Life And Revolution


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

In Italy, they call him il Papa, which means “The Father.” Until his unprecedented election, author and friend Elisabetta Piqué called him Padre Jorge. He may have changed his name to become Pope Francis, but it did not change their friendship. Since Jorge Mario Bergoglio became Pope Francis in 2013, countless books have been written to help the world understand this deeply complex yet simple servant of God. What sets Pope Francis: Life and Revolution apart from all other biographies of Pope Francis is the careful research and original investigation behind it, along with the fact that it is written by an internationally respected journalist—Elisabetta Piqué—who has remained close to the Pope since first meeting him back in 2001. Over 75 individuals were interviewed for Pope Francis: Life and Revolution, including lay people, priests, bishops, and cardinals who have known or worked with Francis at various times in his life. Insights from these people, as well as from friends and family members, allow us to see a profoundly personal side of the Pope. His humility and humanity, courage and conviction, and warmth and wisdom are revealed as Piqué shares little-known episodes from Francis’s life. With a foreword by Cardinal Seán O’Malley, O.F.M. Cap., Pope Francis: Life and Revolution is the definitive resource and narrative of a man personally known by few and revered and respected by many. Pope Francis: Life and Revolution reveals a man consistent in his beliefs and actions. He is a spiritual leader unwavering in his love for God, whose inner joy and peace move him—and can inspire us—to serve the least, the last, and the lost. Also available in Spanish!

Discovering Pope Francis


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

The dangerous tendency to reduce theological positions to political ones has always fueled divisions in the Church, and it plagues debates surrounding Pope Francis's teaching today. This collection of essays was born of a landmark international symposium designed to promote theological understanding by contextualizing the thought of Pope Francis—from his understanding of history to his theology of mission—within important theological conversations rarely heard in the US Catholic Church. Its contributors demonstrate decisively that Pope Francis's magisterium is the fruit of a profound and distinctive, yet deeply Catholic, intellectual engagement with the theological and ecclesial traditions of the Church. Contributors include: Austen Ivereigh, Archbishop Christophe Pierre, Rodrigo Guerra López, Bishop Robert Barron, Massimo Borghesi, Susan K. Wood, SCL, Rocco Buttiglione, Guzmán Carriquiry Lecour, Peter J. Casarella, Brian Y. Lee, Thomas L. Knoebel

On Love


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

Love is the essence of God’s presence in our lives. Sourcing examples from the Old and New Testaments as well as from his personal experience of love for God and others, Pope Francis teaches us that God exists in our lives as steadfast, endless love. When love is cultivated in our own hearts, it will bear the fruit of all other virtues. On Love connects us to Pope Francis’s abiding belief that we were created to be God’s instruments of love in the world. “It is precisely God’s love that gives meaning to our small daily tasks and helps us face great trials. This is the true treasure of humankind: going forward in life with love, a love that the Lord has sown in our hearts. The Lord’s love is our true treasure.” —Pope Francis

Pope Francis


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

A not to be missed volume about the man who is revolutionizing the Catholic Church and the role of the papacy, an extraordinary collection of the pope's most beautiful phrases and quotations, asking us to focus 'on the essentials, on the necessary things: this is also what fascinates and attracts more, what makes the heart burn'. The words of Pope Francis, which form the support structure of the book, touch the hearts of all, believers or not. Turning these pages, one feels as though partaking in his vision of life and faith, of the content that animates preaching. Words that, together with the images accompanying this moving portrayal of the first months of his papacy, lead straight to the heart of his message: a message of love addressed to everyone and, with still more attentive and affectionate concern, to all those who have lost the meaning of life or are experiencing especially difficult circumstances. What emerges in all its fullness is the limpid gaze with which the new pope observes the world and the Church, which he wants capable of showing the face of closeness and of mercy, since 'to accompany with mercy' is the duty it must set (and that of its ministers): 'Let us be enveloped by the mercy of God; let us trust in His patience, which always gives us more time [...] We will feel His wonderful tenderness, we will feel His embrace, and we too will become more capable of mercy, patience, forgiveness and love.' In the words of Pope Francis, one perceives with extreme clarity the call to the most true and profound values of being Christian. The first successor to Peter coming from the ranks of the Jesuit Order, he has always condemned unjust distribution of wealth, economic inequality and poverty as true human rights violations, like a 'social sin' that robs many brothers and sisters all over the world of the chance to enjoy a full life. And for this 'debt' he demands an ethical and united response. In this volume, which gathers the pope's most authentic message, you will therefore not encounter a tumult of condemnations or sterile prohibitions, nor a long list of precepts, too often ignored in daily life, even by those who are living the faith. Instead, you will find an appeal to not slip away from the true mission of the Church, called to be the bearer of the announcement at the foundation of the Christian faith: the salvific love of God and salvation through Jesus Christ. 150 colour photographs
