Publisher's Description

A journal-style book containing inspirational messages from Pope Francis—Time magazine’s Person of the Year for 2013
 
Only a little over a year into his papacy, Pope Francis is being hailed by the news media, Christians, and non-Christians alike as a refreshing figure in the Vatican. His humility, piousness, and forward-thinking ideas have been celebrated around the world.

Reflections from Pope Francis features brief excerpts for reflection from Pope Francis’s homilies, speeches, and addresses—along with invitation to prayer, writing, and action in a unique “journal style” book with space on each page for the reader to write down their own reflections on the powerful messages contained within each page. Complete with a focusing statement and scripture passages that introduce and summarize the theme of that page’s reflection, these excerpts highlight important themes for humanity—such as care for the poor, mercy, forgiveness, and brotherhood.

Editorial Reviews

“If the world had to pick a CEO of Compassion, Pope Francis would fill the post ably. His words remind us of the opportunity to make every moment shine with grace and of the freedom that comes from opening our hearts.”
Kristin Ohlson, author of Stalking the Divine

“We have in this volume a vision of how Pope Francis sees the mission of the Church and of society. His reflections are inspiring and challenging, demanding and joy-filled. Anyone accepting the invitation to journal with Pope Francis will be enriched.”
—Bishop Robert Morneau, auxiliary Bishop Emeritus of Green Bay

“Reflections from Pope Francis is a mosaic of shards and snippets of papal wisdom, insights by a Bishop of Rome with the common touch, an attractive humility, and a deep familiarly with scripture, the human condition, the yearning call to holiness.”
Michael W Higgins, author of Thomas Merton: Faithful Visionary and The Unquiet Monk: Thomas Merton’s Questing Faith

“For those who want to know more about Pope Francis, but are short on time, this book has a wealth of wonderful, brief selections that are perfect for prayer and reflection. Pierson and Stark capture the pope's theology of mercy and his call to live more joyfully and authentically as followers of Christ.”
—Julie Hanlon Rubio, author of Family Ethics: Practices for Christians and Professor of Christian Ethics, St. Louis University

"Susan Stark and Dan Pierson have done us all a great favor by gathering gems from Pope Francis's statements during his first year as Pope. Each selection touches on a key aspect of the Pope’s ministry; the sentences or paragraph selected capture his heart and spirit so well. With ample space for reflection, journaling, and sharing, this book serves well as a resource for individual reflection and small-group exchange. Evangelizers, pastors, preachers, religious education directors, and those serving as adult faith formators will cherish this wonderful collection."
Father Francis P. DeSiano, CSP, president of the Paulist Evangelization Ministries
