About this item
A beautifully illustrated anthology of Pope Francis’s quotes on the theme of mercy, to which the Holy Year is dedicated.This handsomely illustrated book contains a collection of quotes from the pope’s speeches, prayers, and tweets that directly refer to the theme most often used by Pope Francis during the first two years of his papacy. Jorge Mario Bergoglio’s personal life and his pastoral actions have always been characterized by his special attention to the poor, the disadvantaged, and the needy, and it is this devotion to mercy that led the pope to announce an extraordinary Jubilee Year of Mercy that will last from December 8, 2015, to November 30, 2016. The words in this book may be used by readers for their personal meditations, and are a great companion piece for those wishing to experience the Jubilee “accompanied” by Pope Francis.
