A journal-style book containing inspirational messages from Pope Francis--Time magazine's Person of the Year for 2013
Only a little over a year into his papacy, Pope Francis is being hailed by the news media, Christians, and non-Christians alike as a refreshing figure in the Vatican. His humility, piousness, and forward-thinking ideas have been celebrated around the world. Reflections from Pope Francis
features brief excerpts for reflection from Pope Francis's homilies, speeches, and addresses--along with invitation to prayer, writing, and action in a unique "journal style" book with space on each page for the reader to write down their own reflections on the powerful messages contained within each page. Complete with a focusing statement and scripture passages that introduce and summarize the theme of that page's reflection, these excerpts highlight important themes for humanity--such as care for the poor, mercy, forgiveness, and brotherhood.
