A Year of Mercy: Inspiring Words from Pope Francis


Alas, this book never reached me ...🙁

An Uplifting Read

I purchased this inspirational book for my husband and he is thoroughly enjoying
it. We both find the words of our Holy Father encouraging and life affirming.
We expect to read this book again and again.

Powerful, moves U toward discovery

A surprisingly moving yet a "small-book". I am taking it slowly as this is not just a read-through type book. I have not finished my first time through. May notes, food for thought, and ponder part of a day. The sections stay with me as I move through a day, prayers pop up and I then journal. Our Pope is a protagonist for sure. He gets to the point, or more like to the heart of the matter. In about 2 months I hope to begin my second time through and see how I have grown.!

Pope Francis, formerly Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio, S.J., served the Jesuits as novice master, lecturer, provincial, confessor, and spiritual director before Pope John Paul II named him Archbishop of Buenos Aires. He was elected to the papacy on March 13, 2013. He is the first pope from the Americas and the first pope to choose the name Francis, in honor of St. Francis of Assisi.

Diane M. Houdek is digital editor at Franciscan Media and the author of Lent with St. Francis, Advent with St. Francis, and Pope Francis and Our Call to Joy.
