"Some people want to know why I wished to be called Francis. For me, Francis of Assisi is the man of poverty, the man of peace, the man who loves and protects creation." 
-- Pope Francis, March 16, 2013.

Published in cooperation with the Vatican, this original collection brings the life and legacy of Saint Francis of Assisi to life through the pope's uplifting and challenging words.By taking the name of one of the most venerated figures in Christendom, Pope Francis set a high bar for his papacy. Saint Francis renounced wealth and honor in order to proclaim the Gospel message to a lost generation. His exuberant love for God and radical example of Christian life awakened hope in countless followers and renewed the Church. 

Pope Francis often speaks and writes about Franciscan ideals such as simplicity, humility, forgiveness, joy, compassion, peacemaking, and care for creation. His inspirational homilies, addresses, and writings on these and other Franciscan themes are collected in this book for the first time, giving you a simple way to renew your faith.

From the Back Cover:

Since his election in March 2013, many, many people have been inspired by Pope Francis's profound spirituality and ability to articulate the deep love that God has for all people. Editor Alicia von Stamwitz has done a superb job in arranging the messages of Pope Francis in a manner that makes this book easy to use as a resource for prayer and reflection. This book will be treasured in the years to come as a remembrance of the first year of Pope Francis's papacy and the transformation his deep understanding of the Gospel is bringing to the people of God.

-- Ron Rolheiser, O.M.I., author, speaker, and president of the Oblate School of Theology

About the Author:

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 Saint Francis of Assisi.

Alicia (Ramirez de Arellano) von Stamwitz was born in Cuba and immigrated to the United States in 1960. She is an award-winning freelance author and longtime editor with the religious press. Her interviews and profiles of today’s most influential spiritual leaders are published internationally. She lives in Missouri with her family.
