the Church of Mercy by Pope Francis, a vision for the church

How does one review a book of homilies and letters?

How does one comment on the words of the Pope?

I will try.

For the first time in my catholic life(about half my life) I have read homilies by the current pope, Pope Francis.

Every word he says is true, every word he says is right

now

we just need all Christians not just Catholics to listen and follow

for his words, are words that hold true for all Christians.

This book is comprised of Homilies, addresses, and writings.

His focus is the poor

His focus is on Christians leaving the safe confines of the walls of their church buildings and going out

going out into the unknown

going out to find the people that Jesus would look for

those on the outskirts of society

those who are suffering

My review is so very inadequate to reading his words…regardless of your flavor of faith

so go out…

get the book

but then…act

show mercy to those hurting

in any way you can.

can’t afford the book, go to the Vatican Website, you can read his homilies and letters here
