The Church of Mercy : His First Major Book: A Message of Hope for All People Paperback
by Pope Francis
The focal point of Pope Francis' Church is mercy: in the dialogue between human fragility and God's mercy the Church has to welcome and help everyone to find the 'good news' of Christian hope.
As part of his revolutionary new vision for the Church, Francis calls on all believers to be 'full-time Christians' and not 'living-room Christians', and to struggle against the trappings of power, and the worship of money and careerism. Francis has spoken and written widely on these themes during his first year as Pope, and his thoughts are here collected for the first time, edited and abridged with full Vatican approval. The book is aimed at a broader readership, believers and non-believers, priests, religious, dedicated laypeople, and teachers.
