In the year since he was elected, Pope Francis’ simple
message of mercy, service, and renewal has spread to every corner of the world.
Through his gentle demeanor, selfless actions, and welcoming call for service
to others, he has captured the attention of a world longing for an authentic
message of hope—we want to hear what he has to say.
Collected from Pope Francis’ speeches, homilies, and papers
presented during the first year of his papacy, The Church of Mercy is
the first Vatican-authorized book detailing his vision for the Catholic Church.
From how to be citizens of the world to answering God’s call for
evangelization, Pope Francis’ deep wisdom reminds us that the Church must move
beyond its own walls and joyfully take God’s mercy wherever suffering,
division, or injustice exists.
Named Time magazine’s
2013 “Person of the Year,” Pope Francis is helping the Church continue toward
an authentic Christianity that is faithful to the Gospel and resonant with the
world’s greatest needs. The Church of Mercy encourages each of us to
ignite the flame within to help share the light of Christ and revitalize the
Church. Download and start listening now!
