KeyWordsOfPopeFrancisKey Words of Pope Francis

Editors: Joshua J. McElwee, Cindy Wooden 

A collection of over 50 essays by a set of contributors from around the globe, each writing on a specific word that has become important in the ministry of Pope Francis.

Writers such as Fr Timothy Radcliffe, Archbishop Justin Welby, Sr Simone Campbell, Cardinal Blase Cupich, Cardinal Óscar Rodríguez Maradiaga, Fr James Martin, Cardinal Luis Antonio Tagle and Carolyn Woo explore the Pope's use of words like joy, clericalism, field hospital, money, family and tears.

Together, they reveal what Francis's use of these words says about him, his ministry and priorities, and their significance to the church, the world, and the lives of individual Christians. The entire collection is introduced by a foreword by Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew, the spiritual leader of Orthodox Christians worldwide, and a preface by one of Francis's closest advisers, Cardinal Seán O'Malley.

I Believe

I BELIEVE: The Promise of the Creed

Pope Francis; Editor: Stefan von Kempis

Drawn from his writings, interviews, and homilies, I Believe provides an intimate window on the Pope’s personal faith, and an incomparable introduction to the gospel.

Organized around the principle themes of the Apostles' Creed, these short readings make it clear that the Creed is more than a list of dogmatic propositions; it is an invitation to encounter the living God in the deepest place in our hearts. And that encounter inspires us to action: to give witness, to practice greater charity, to live in the truth.

The Pope’s words are also a challenge—to meet the God of surprises, who makes all things new, who accompanies us on our journey. For anyone seeking a more authentic life, this is a book to carry and treasure.

Rafael Luciani

Pope Francis has offered a bold challenge to an “economy that kills,” identifying in particu­lar a form of globalization that turns people into disposable consumers and increases the widening gap between the rich and poor.

In do­ing so, he has drawn not only from the social teaching of the Latin American Church, but also in a particular way from a school of the­ology that arose in Argentina called “Theology of the People.” A type of liberation theology, it emphasizes respect for the culture and popular religious expressions of the poor.
