Publisher's Description

Pope Francis cares deeply about the health and happiness not only of today’s families, but also of tomorrow’s families. The pope continues to keep the theme of the family in the forefront through his speeches, homilies, addresses, and writings. Published in cooperation with the Libreria Editrice Vaticana, the Vatican Publishing House, this original collection brings Pope Francis’s teachings on the importance of family into focus in an elegant way. It covers themes of love and marriage, the promise of young people, and the vocation and mission of the family.

Author Bio

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.

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.
