Jorge Mario Bergoglio as Pope Francis in Rome
Anna De Simone
Encountering the new Pope: the life and career of Cardinal Jorge Bergoglio as Pope Francis in Rome.
The way to Christ on Earth.
Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio of Argentina was elected pope on March 13, 2013, at the age of 76. The 266th pontiff of the Roman Catholic Church, he is the first Jesuit and the first to take the name Francis. He is also the first non-European leader of the church in more than 1,200 years.
Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio appeared at the balcony over St. Peter's square as the new Pope and defined himself as a "Pope" coming from the other side of the World. As the archbishop of Buenos Aires, Cardinal Bergoglio has already enjoyed a reputation as a man of fraternity and evangelical insight.
His name is very Italian and brings back the Church to the real interpreter of Christ's message, Saint Francis of Assisi.
This book, "Jorge Mario Bergoglio as Pope Francis in Rome" offers a wide yet straightforward outlook into his life and career.
The book includes letters by the Pope himself and a number of texts by commentators of the Pope' pontificate.
