  • During a relatively short pontificate, Pope Francis has inspired both Christians and non-Christians alike with his humility, his pragmatism and his refreshing approach to the realities of modern life. Pope Francis and the Family is an absorbing compilation of the Holy Father’s reflections on family, the cornerstone of Catholicism today.


    Divided thematically, this clear-sighted and engaging work sees the pope provide wisdom and encouragement to readers everywhere, with particular emphasis on the role of the nuclear family in sharing and preserving the Gospel message.

  • Pope Francis


    Pope Francis was born Jorge Mario Bergoglio on 17 December 1936 in Buenos Aires, Argentina. As a young man, he worked briefly as a chemical technician and nightclub bouncer before entering the Jesuits. He was ordained a priest in 1969, and from 1973 to 1979, was Argentina’s Provincial Superior of the Society of Jesus. He became the Archbishop of Buenos Aires in 1998, and was appointed a Cardinal in 2001.


    Following the resignation of Pope Benedict XVI on 28 February 2013, Bergoglio was named his successor on 13 March. He chose the name Francis in honor of Saint Francis of Assisi. He is the first Jesuit Pope, the first Pope from the Americas, the first Pope from the Southern Hemisphere, and the first non-European Pope in over 1200 years.


    Pope Francis has been noted for his humility, his concern for the poor, and his commitment to dialogue as a way to build bridges between people of all backgrounds, beliefs, and faiths.
