Pope Francis in His Own Words free pdf The moment the identity of the newly elected 266th pontiff was revealed, it was clear to the thousands gathered in St. Peter's Square, and to the watching world, that this pope was different in fascinating and exciting ways -- the first from Latin America, the first Jesuit, and the first to take the name Francis, in honor of St. Francis of Assisi. When Pope Francis, formerly Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio of Buenos Aires, spoke from the balcony of St. Peter's Basilica, he greeted his audience colloquially: "Brothers and sisters, good evening." Downplaying his power and position, he proceeded not to bless the crowd but to ask them for "their" blessing: "I ask a favor of you," he said, bowing humbly. "Let us make, in silence, this prayer: your prayer over me." Francis has repeatedly foregone the fancy dress, lavish accommodations, and other luxuries of his position, emphasizing pastoral work with the sick and the poor and always seeking to empower the underdog. This revealing collection of his own words, gathered from sermons, interviews, and the Pope's books, prompts understanding and insight into his way of being and believing -- and inspires goodwill, love, and hope.

About Julie Schwietert Collazo

Jorge Mario Bergoglio was born in Flores, Buenos Aires, Argentina, on December 17, 1936, to an Italian immigrant father and an Argentinian mother. He graduated high school with a diploma in chemical technology and at age twenty-two, during a severe case of pneumonia, had part of one lung removed. Once fully recovered, he decided to devote himself to the priesthood and joined the Jesuits as a novice. After ten years of study, he was ordained a priest in 1969. In 1973, he became the regional leader for the worldwide Jesuit order. In 1992, Father Jorge, as he preferred to be called, was appointed Auxiliary Bishop in Buenos Aires, and he became Archbishop of Buenos Aires in 1998. Pope John Paul II appointed Bergoglio Cardinal in 2001. Following the resignation of Pope Benedict XVI, the Conclave met to elect a new pope. On March 13, 2013, after two days and five ballots, they elected Bergoglio, who became Pope Francis I. Julie Schwietert Collazo has written for a variety of magazines including "Time, National Geographic Traveler, " and "Latina," reporting widely on Latin America. She lives in New York, though she has called San Juan, Puerto Rico, and Mexico City home as well.
