To understand Pope Francis' background we have selected from all his previous writings some quotations that, as a whole, could give us a glimpse of what we are to expect from him as Pope.
The selection of his words is organized in the form of a calendar for daily prayer and reflection. They are small "beads" of his thought, pedagogically arranged to illumine your days, linking them into a living rosary of the mystery of our faith.
Take your portion for each day and spend time to savor every word. Every day has its own flavor, its own rhythm. May you unearth treasures of wisdom from the words of Pope Francis to strengthen you in faith, build you up in hope and bring you closer to God and to our brothers and sisters with an "open mind and faithful heart."
