Product Description

The new pope chose St. Francis as his namesake. By doing so, according to Loehr, he identifies himself with love for the church, love of the cross, love of peace, love of the poor, and love for humility. She points out how vital each topic was in the life of Jesus and St. Francis, and in current initiatives under this pontiff. Audiobook Version.

Publisher's Description

Why did the pope choose the name Francis?

St. Francis lived a life of dedication to the Gospel. In choosing this great saint as patron, Pope Francis signaled early on that his papacy would reflect a profound embrace of that same Gospel. Gina Loehr, with Al Giambrone, examines five Gospel values important to both men: humility, charity, church, peace, and joy. For each value, there is a chapter containing a Scripture reflection, examples from the lives of St. Francis and Pope Francis, relevant Church teaching, and questions for reflection.
