This official commemorative edition is a joint publication of Franciscan Media and the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops.
What an honor it was to have our Holy Father come to the United States and share his joyful witness with us! I found that he came to our country both as a pastor to be with his people and as a prophet to call us to greater conversion to Christ. His profound words and beautiful gestures pointed the way for each of us to more joyously and faithfully serve each person in the name of Jesus. I am grateful for those who put together this commemorative book. I believe we will be reaping the spiritual fruits of the Holy Father's visit in the Church and, I hope, in American society at large, for many years to come.Archbishop Joseph E. Kurtz President, US Conference of Catholic Bishops
