Francis Pope of Good Promise

Francis Pope of Good Promise
$28.99

From the moment Pope Francis stepped on to the balcony of St Peter's, people around the globe sensed that not only the Catholic Church, but the world at large, could be entering a new spiritual, political and social age. The pomp and circumstance that had characterised the Vatican for as long as most people could remember evaporated as Francis asked the throng gathered in the square to "pray over" him before he gave his first blessing. Not since John XXIII, had a new Pope opened the windows of the Church so widely to let in some much needed fresh air.

This biography of Pope Francis charts Jorge Mario Bergoglio's formation as a priest and bishop against the dramatic backdrop of Argentina's turbulent politics and the challenging principles he adopted as a member of the Jesuit order. It examines critically the extent to which his social conscience was influenced by the legacy of the country's controversial president General Peron and his wife Evita, and questions his moral standing during the Argentina military junta's 'Dirty War' when he was accused of not having done enough on behalf of the victims, including fellow Jesuit priests. Few Vatican elections have generated as much interest as that of Cardinal Jose Bergoglio. Francis, Pope of Good Promise, the first detailed biography to include an analysis of Pope Francis's first year at the Vatican, will appear just as he makes his first visit to the US.

Pope Benedict XVI says the word of God "draws each of us into a conversation with the Lord: the God who speaks teaches us how to speak to him." In this apostolic exhortation --an extended reflection on the work of the Bishops' Synod on the Word of God in 2008-- the Holy Father affirms that the word of God is at the heart of our faith and at the heart of every activity in the Church. He calls for an increased emphasis on the Bible in catechesis and pastoral work, and recommends lectio divina, or prayerful reading of Scripture, so that all believers can encounter Christ in his the living word. And because the Church by its nature is missionary, what we have received through the word we must proclaim to the world.

Discovering Motherhood is a journey without a map—a life-long trip into a new and unfamiliar world. It is a daunting, high-energy trek with ups and downs and bumps in the road.

The price of admission is three a.m. feedings, endless diaper changes and lost sleep. But the payoff comes in the profound relationships of mother and children, and in the love that gives life its luster.

Annemarie Scobey has recorded the journey with insight, humor and a sure sense of the presence of the Divine in the turmoil, troubles and triumphs of everyday life.

Discovering Motherhood celebrates a dimension of life that only mothers can truly know.
