In his 2014 pre-Christmas address to his administration in Rome, Pope Francis presented the cardinals, bishops, prelates and staff, along with the whole world, with a long list of harmful attitudes that make people “ill”. These fifteen “curial diseases” impede not only the people affected but also the reform of the Church and its Curia. In an open letter I first examine the curial diseases, with the image of a “God-among-us Church” I try to cover what a healthy church and Curia could look like. Specifically I then lay six kinds of organisational remedies on the table of the Church’s future, which might help to bring the Curia and the Church closer together again in their responsibility and mission. This open letter has now turned into a booklet that is intended to give those affected by curial diseases “fresh ideas”. It is intended to keep them “active”, away from Rome and power, towards people and life. Since fresh air at “new locations” does everyone good, we started having ideas about really decentralizing the Curia. A sensitive and competent disentangling of worldly and religious rule is proposed, in order to clear the way for a new relationship between religions and states on the world scene. With this open letter I want to reach out to Christians and win them over to Pope Francis’ vital reform project. This pope urgently needs support from the grassroots. We must not leave him alone in all his efforts and endeavours. The reform of the Curia is a reform of the Church, a reform of our “God-among-us Church”.
Around the World in 80 Days with Pope Francis you could be summed up in a series of apostolic journeys and pastoral visits that he has addressed with great passion and devotion during the two and a half years of his pontificate. These paths are called Apostolic because the Pope is the successor of the Apostle Peter and are considered travel courtesy diplomatic heads of state or local representatives of the host State. The Pope seeks to spread joy and love messages traveling between different locations around the world and meeting all the human race. With this manual you want to review again the apostolic journeys of our dear Pope during his 21⁄2 years of pontificate: from Rio De Janeiro to the Holy Land, from the island of Lampedusa in Assisi, from South Korea to the Philippines, from Naples in Turin, from Sarajevo to South America, from Cuba to the United States. Basically we try to celebrate his world tour in 80 days, trying to spread the messages of peace, love and freedom among the fundamental stages of the human being. Il giro del mondo in 80 giorni con Papa Francesco si potrebbe riassumere in una serie di viaggi apostolici e di visite pastorali che lui stesso ha affrontato con grande passione e tanta devozione nel corso dei due anni e mezzo del suo pontificato. Questi percorsi vengono chiamati Apostolici in quanto il Papa è il successore dell'apostolo Pietro e sono da considerarsi viaggi di cortesia diplomatici tra capi di Stato o rappresentanze locali dello Stato ospitante. Il Papa cerca di diffondere gioia e messaggi d'amore, viaggiando tra le diverse località del mondo e incontrando ogni razza umana. Con questo manuale si vogliono ripercorrere i vari viaggi apostolici del nostro caro Papa nel corso dei suoi 2 anni e mezzo di Pontificato: da Rio De Janeiro alla Terra Santa, dall'Isola di Lampedusa ad Assisi, dalla Corea del Sud alle Filippine, da Napoli a Torino, da Sarajevo al Sud America, da Cuba agli Stati Uniti. In sostanza si cerca di celebrare il s

This biography of Pope Francis's life shows readers the scope of his interesting life through stunning photographs and images. Fact boxes break important information into fun, bite-sized chunks.

This book explores the life of Pope Francis, a Roman Catholic pope of many firsts. He is the first Jesuit pope, the first from the Americas, and even the first from the Southern Hemisphere. This thoughtful and insightful book discusses the pope's early life as Jorge Mario Bergoglio and his work as a chemical technologist and nightclub bouncer before studying to become a priest. The book's focus will be on his concern for and work with the poor, and his outreach to people of different faiths.
In this book, the author shares his honest and personal opinions concerning certain attitudes and doctrines of the Catholic religion. His goal in writing this book is not to try to instruct or indoctrinate you. Rather, he wishes to present you with a menu of theories, reflections, and facts he has observed as an ex-Catholic; one who is a staunch believer in the 2600-year-old Golden Rule: “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.” Somehow the Catholic Church has betrayed that rule and finds herself in deep trouble. The criminal conduct of tens of thousands of priests and the Vatican’s cover-up of their actions has become one of the world’s biggest scandals. The Vatican must now follow the United Nations’ directive to open up its files concerning the sexual abuse of children by priests. In the last few years alone, legal suits related to this abuse have amounted to billions of dollars. The Church could end up monetarily bankrupt ... if not morally. But we have a new player on the scene: Pope Francis. He is a nonconformist and shows signs that he is ready to face the music and do whatever it takes to save the ailing Church. Will he overcome the misogynistic attitude of his Church and allow the marriage of priests and the ordination of women?
Before becoming Pope Francis, Fr. Jorge Bergoglio, as a Jesuit priest in Argentina, served the Jesuit order and the Church in a variety of functions: professor, spiritual director, master of novices, provincial, and eventually Cardinal Archbishop of Buenos Aires. This fascinating new look at Pope Francis presents the personal insights of ten Jesuits, many who have known him since his first days as a Jesuit, and were interviewed for this book shortly after he was elected the Pope. Some were his professors, some his peers, and some younger Jesuits who were his students. Also interviewed for this book are non-Jesuits, including an Argentine senator, a prominent rabbi, a priest working in the slums of Buenos Aires that Bergoglio often visited. Their remarks are focused on different aspects of the man, including his family background, his abilities, and his personality as administrator, as friend, as teacher, as a guide, etc. Some of the predominant aspects of his personality to emerge are his longstanding simplicity and authentic spirituality; his concern for the individual and the poor; his desire for the Church to go out to the street to meet the needs of the people. More controversial issues discussed include his dealing with the issue of "Liberation Theology" and his relationship with the military regime in Argentina. These interviews essentially transmit a mosaic that reveals little-known insights of the pontiff's personality, of his interior world, his human abilities, his work habits, his devotions, his concerns, and his friendships. Thus, they open a fascinating door to a better understanding of the man whom the Holy Spirit has elected to lead the Church at this time.
Pope Francis cares deeply about the health and happiness not only of today’s families, but also of tomorrow’s families. The pope continues to keep the theme of the family in the forefront through his speeches, homilies, addresses, and writings. Published in cooperation with the Vatican, this original collection brings Pope Francis’s teachings on the importance of family into focus in an elegant way. It covers themes of love and marriage, the promise of young people, and the vocation and mission of the family.
Public Art (Now): Out of Time, Out of Place is the first survey of progressive public art from around the world. It presents some of the most significant artworks in the public realm from the last decade, challenging preconceptions about where, when and how public art takes place. The face of public art is changing. For decades, art in the public realm has been characterized by the landmark sculpture or spectacular outdoor event that helps to define or brand a place. But in recent years, a new wave of international artists and producers has rejected the monumental scale and mass appeal of such artworks. Instead, these individuals and groups favour unconventional forms that unsettle rather than authenticate a place's identity; disrupt rather than embellish a particular location; and contest rather than validate the design and function of public space. Performed interactions, collaborative social movements and small-scale subversive acts are just some of the unorthodox approaches taken by these artists. Their works challenge preconceived ideas about the role of art in place-making as they seek to remake places through radical forms and practices. Public Art (Now): Out of Time, Out of Place presents the artists who have been redefining the practice of public art over the past decade. They directly address the most pressing issues of our time, including the encroachment of corporate concerns on public space, the implications of global migration and the isolation of the individual, and the potential of collective action to share the future of our towns and cities. Some forty key works from around the world are organized into five sections – 'Displacement', 'Intervention', 'Disorientation', 'Occupation' and 'Perpetuation' – with detailed descriptions and dozens of installation and process shots. Interviews and quotes from practitioners, commissioners and commentators reveal the impetus and context for the projects, while the editor's introduction sets out the conceptu
In Elizabeth Smither's eighteenth collection of poetry her words are as vital as ever. The poems take the everyday &– mothers and daughters, cats and horses, books and bowls, slippers and shirts &– and transform them into something fresh: sometimes surreal, sometimes funny, often enchanted. And throughout, the work is infused with the personality of the author: a quirky, whimsical observer of the mundane world around her, which she shows to be full of surprises.
Pope Francis's impact on the modern world has already proved extraordinary. It is no surprise that he was voted Time magazine's Person of the Year (in 2013), joining the likes of Martin Luther King (1964) and President John F. Kennedy (1961). Francis has turned the Catholic Church upside-down, flung open the windows of the Vatican and started to purge the church of corruption, nepotism and financial skulduggery. But above all he is engaged with the poor, the starving and the marginalised. He has made important visits to troubled spots in the world and invariably people say his appearances change everything. Pope Francis is in constant dialogue with the outside world and with the universal Catholic Church. He likes being asked questions, finding it easy to respond, and maintains a good relationship with the press. In this new book are some of his most valuable engagements in dialogue form with people of all sorts and kinds. On the one hand, there is his recent engagement with priests in Colombia who are locked in a struggle for human rights. In another lengthy piece, he talks about the importance of scripture, in a way which shows how this is a living source of inspiration. Also included are the texts of the Pope's most recent addresses in Myanmar, Peru and Chile. Open to God: Open to the World offers a fascinating glimpse into the mind and workings of this entirely different Pope. As we see in these conversations the Franciscan revolution is under way and, in spite of Francis's critics, the revolution will roll on and new horizons will be opened for the one and a half billion Catholics in the world today.

“River of Fire is Sister Helen’s story leading up to her acclaimed book Dead Man Walking—it is thought-provoking, informative, and inspiring. Read it and it will set your heart ablaze!”—Mark Shriver, author of Pilgrimage: My Search for the Real Pope Francis The nation’s foremost leader in efforts to abolish the death penalty shares the story of her growth as a spiritual leader, speaks out about the challenges of the Catholic Church, and shows that joy and religion are not mutually exclusive. Sister Helen Prejean’s work as an activist nun, campaigning to educate Americans about the inhumanity of the death penalty, is known to millions worldwide. Less widely known is the evolution of her spiritual journey from praying for God to solve the world’s problems to engaging full-tilt in working to transform societal injustices. Sister Helen grew up in a well-off Baton Rouge family that still employed black servants. She joined the Sisters of St. Joseph at the age of eighteen and was in her forties when she had an awakening that her life’s work was to immerse herself in the struggle of poor people forced to live on the margins of society. Sister Helen writes about the relationships with friends, fellow nuns, and mentors who have shaped her over the years. In this honest and fiercely open account, she writes about her close friendship with a priest, intent on marrying her, that challenged her vocation in the “new territory of the heart.” The final page of River of Fire ends with the opening page of Dead Man Walking, when she was first invited to correspond with a man on Louisiana’s death row. River of Fire is a book for anyone interested in journeys of faith and spirituality, doubt and belief, and “catching on fire” to purpose and passion. It is a book, written in accessible, luminous prose, about how to live a spiritual life that is wide awake to the sufferings and creative opportunities of our world. “Prejean chronicles the compelling, sometimes
