About this product
- DescriptionOn March 13, 2013, the world waited in hushed anticipation for the anuncement of the new Successor of Peter and leader of the Roman Catholic Church. For weeks the news had been filled with discussions and speculation of leading papabili. Now, finally, the new pope would be revealed. But when Jorge Mario Bergoglio appeared the world was momentarily stunned. Who was this humble Cardinal from Argentina who emerged onto the loggia, choosing the name Francis, in hor of St. Francis of Assisi? In Pope Francis: The Pope from the End of the Earth best-selling author Thomas J. Craughwell explores the life of Pope Francis, including his birth and early years at the end of the earth in Argentina; his mystical experience as a teenager that drew him to religious life; his years as a priest and bishop with a heart for the poor and marginalized; and his unflagging courage to teach and defend the Catholic faith.Pope Francis: The Pope from the End of the Earth includes nearly 70 vivid full-page photographs, a fascinating in-depth biography, foreword by Cardinal Sean O'Malley, Francis' first homilies as Pope, and supplemental sections on Catholic beliefs, practices, and traditions.
