Children have questions and struggles just like adults, but rarely are they given the chance to voice their concerns and ask the big questions resting deep in their hearts. In Dear Pope Francis, Pope Francis gives them that chance and celebrates their spiritual depth by directly answering questions from children around the world. Some are fun. Some are serious. And some will quietly break your heart. But all of them are from children who deserve to know and feel God’s unconditional love. Also available in Spanish as Querido Papa Francisco. "Feels akin to sitting in on a series of intimate conversations." -Publishers Weekly "The People's Pope shows that he is a down-to-earth man who understands both religion and children." -Kirkus Reviews

In this uplifting and practical book, written in collaboration with his biographer, Austen Ivereigh, the preeminent spiritual leader explains why we must--and how we can--make the world safer, fairer, and healthier for all people now. In the COVID crisis, the beloved shepherd of over one billion Catholics saw the cruelty and inequity of our society exposed more vividly than ever before. He also saw, in the resilience, generosity, and creativity of so many people, the means to rescue our society, our economy, and our planet. In direct, powerful prose, Pope Francis urges us not to let the pain be in vain. He begins Let Us Dream by exploring what this crisis can teach us about how to handle upheaval of any kind in our own lives and the world at large. With unprecedented candor, he reveals how three crises in his own life changed him dramatically for the better. By its very nature, he shows, crisis presents us with a choice: we make a grievous error if we try to return to some pre-crisis state. But if we have the courage to change, we can emerge from the crisis better than before. Francis then offers a brilliant, scathing critique of the systems and ideologies that conspired to produce the current crisis, from a global economy obsessed with profit and heedless of the people and environment it harms, to politicians who foment their people's fear and use it to increase their own power at their people's expense. He reminds us that Christians' first duty is to serve others, especially the poor and the marginalized, just as Jesus did. Finally, the Pope offers an inspiring and actionable blueprint for building a better world for all humanity by putting the poor and the planet at the heart of new thinking. For this plan, he draws not only on sacred sources, but on the latest findings from renowned scientists, economists, activists, and other thinkers. Yet rather than simply offer prescriptions, he shows how ordinary people acting together despite their differences can discover unforeseen possibilities. Along the way, he offers dozens of wise and surprising observations on the value of unconventional thinking, on why we must dramatically increase women's leadership in the Church and throughout society, on what he learned while scouring the streets of Buenos Aires with garbage-pickers, and much more. Let Us Dream is an epiphany, a call to arms, and a pleasure to read. It is Pope Francis at his most personal, profound and passionate. With this book and with open hearts, we can change the world.

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.

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 conceptual, practical and ethical issues raised by the works. Bringing together the most significant artworks in the public realm of the last ten years – from ephemeral interventions to long-term ongoing projects – this dynamic survey is an essential reference for anyone interested in the ideas, issues and impulses behind progressive public art, and an accessible introduction to one of the most vibrant areas of contemporary art.

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.

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”.

“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-difficult journey to the heart of her soul and faith with wit, honesty, and intelligence. A refreshingly intimate memoir of a life in faith.”—Kirkus Reviews

Read the inspiring words of Pope Francis to discover the transforming power of faith.

On Faith brings us Pope Francis’s encouragement to live our faith as individuals and in community. “True faith is that which makes us more charitable, more merciful, more honest, and more humane. It moves our hearts to love everyone without counting the cost. It spurs us on to live out a culture of encounter, dialogue, respect, and fraternity.” —Pope Francis

This volume is a collection of essays that explains how literature, philosophy and theology have explored the role of wonder in our lives, particularly through poetry. Wonder has been an object of fascination for these disciplines from the Greek antiquity onwards, yet the connections between their views on the subject are often ignored in subject specific studies. The book is divided into three parts: Part I opens the conversation on wonder in philosophy, Part II is given to theology and Part III to literary perspectives. An international set of contributors, including poets as well as scholars, have produced a study that looks beyond traditional chronological, geographical and disciplinary boundaries, both within the individual essays themselves and in respect to one another. The volume’s wide historical framework is punctuated by four poems by contemporary poets on the theme of wonder. An unconventional foray into one of the best-known themes of the European tradition, this book will be of great interest to scholars of literature, theology and philosophy.

The call to lead and the call to holiness are profoundly intertwined. But in our world today, what does it even mean to be a leader? What does it even mean to be holy? Using the timeless and transcendent wisdom of the saints and the latest findings in business and social science, this book takes an insightful examination of the leadership principles demonstrated in the lives of the saints and their applicability to our modern everyday lives. Faced with challenges where their faith and even their lives hung in the balance, the saints responses exemplify what are authentic, effective, and inspirational models of leadership that we can use to guide us to our eternal destination. Echoing the words of Saint Francis of Assisi, Come along, Ill show you how. Let us call on Francis, Dominic, Ignatius, Francis Xavier, Therese of Lisieux, Teresa of Avila, Maximilian Kolbe, Padre Pio, Mother Teresa, Pope John Paul II, and countless others who have gone before us to be our companions and guides, illuminating the path for us as we step up to lead and move forward to journey towards Christ.

Eric Barone, researcher of consciousness, French writer, author of more than 80 books. Admirer of Notre Dame de Paris, a cathedral on which he meditated many times and in front of which he wrote many of his books. Shaken by the fire, he sees it as an essential symbol for Christianity. Eric Barone publishes today this open letter to Pope Francis in which he raises the true problems of Christianity: reincarnation, faith, the power of the mass and prayer, the secrets contained in the Bible, black magic and exorcism, powers of healing. ... No subject has been neglected by this serious author. At a time when all authors and journalists were polarized about the burning of a monument, Barone with great respect and as a man of faith, asks the Pope the true question of all Christians: IS THE CHURCH OR CATHOLICISM BURNING?
