Product Description

Pope Francis, by his initial choice of a name, seemed to offer a preview of his agenda, vision, and sense of mission. In Francis of Assisi, a saint who recalled the church to the image of Jesus, the pope found a potent symbol of reform. A church inspired by St. Francis embraces the poor and those on the margins, eschews pomp and power, promotes peace and care for creation. Certainly, by embracing and modeling these values, Pope Francis has unleashed enormous hopes. In this enthusiastic work, Leonardo Boff explores the connections between the two Francises - and the promise they hold for "a new springtime" for the church.

Publisher's Description

In choosing his name, Pope Francis was indicating an agenda, a vision, and a sense of mission. Saint Francis, the most universally beloved saint, reformed the church by imitating Christ in simplicity, poverty, and love for those on the margins. The spirit of St. Francis calls the church to embrace the poor, to promote peace and adopt an ecological consciousness. In embracing these values, Pope Francis has unleashed enormous hopes. Here, Leonardo Boff, one of the leading figures of liberation theology as well as the global movement for justice and ecology, explores the connections between these two Francises and the promise they hold for the church and the world today"
