The Church of Mercy
In the first year after he was elected, Pope Francis’s simple message of mercy, service, and renewal spread to every corner of the world. Through his gentle demeanor, selfless actions, and welcoming call for service to others, Pope Francis 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’s 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’s deep wisdom reminds us that the Church must move beyond its own walls and joyfully bring God’s mercy wherever suffering, division, or injustice exists.
