Publisher's Summary

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.

A remarkable book

A fantastic book that I found to be developmental and maturative for a young man coming of age such as myself. This book offers a new and improved look at the perceptions of forgiveness and mercy that are unparalleled and absolutely fundamental. I found this book incredibly well written and I further highly recommend this book.

Inspiring

I’m not a Roman Catholic, however I really appreciated the wisdom and biblical insight Pope Francis gives here. I can’t say I agree with everything, but after reading this it is refreshing to know that the Pope would be okay with that and still extend mercy to me and welcome me into worship. Good stuff. I took some notes away from this one.
