Jesus and Pope Francis
Models for Living
Pope Francis is about action, not doctrines, dogmas, or creeds. So was Jesus. Pope Francis is all about mercy and care of the poor. So was Jesus. Pope Francis has challenged political and business leaders to take better care of people. So did Jesus. We need to heal the wounds of people, Pope Francis said. That is exactly what Jesus did. Pope Francis is calling the Catholic Church to be one of compassion, not one of ideological purity. Jesus challenged the "church" of his day - the Jewish leaders - as well. Pope Francis extends the teaching of Jesus to the environment and urges us to take better care of God's creation.
The author expands on all these themes in this book. He also includes reflection questions for the reader's own personal religious and spiritual development.
This book is #2 in the Pope Francis series. The first one is Pope Francis: The Beginning of a New Era. The other two are study guides for "Joy of the Gospel" and "The Care of our Common Home".
