Review: Pope Francis by Michael J. Ruszala.

Who is Jorge Bergoglio? This is a well written book about the 266th Bishop of Rome who is now Pope Francis. It’s a very trustworthy account of Gorge Bergoglio’s growing up years and the many acts of kindness, events, as he walked the path to his place as Pope Francis. He is a man who lived amongst the poor and forgotten. I have not met Pope Francis but after reading this book I feel I know him. He sounds like he’s an outstanding person and he claims his key to everything is, “Mercy”.

His life began in Buenos Aires, Argentina and born to a family of Italian Immigrants who escaped Italy from the Mussolini’s fascist regime. Pope Francis is the eldest of five siblings. He saw and learned from an early age the inconsistently between the poor and rich that would later encompass his thoughts, behavior and actions he displays over the years. He has already proven to us that luxuries are not on his agenda. He just opens his heart and walks amongst people letting them know that they are not forgotten and they are loved…

The message he engages is for people to know who they are, where their hearts could be, and what they could do for others. His credence is assisting with humility and rejecting the specialties Pope’s are given today. He entered the priesthood at the age of seventeen; he spent some years teaching philosophy, theology among other subjects and followed the path of his faith. He is now seventy-six and I hope he has many more years.

The way the world is now Pope Francis has many issues that we place in front of him and I feel he isn’t going to shy away or back down. He’s going to face the issues of abortion, same sex marriage, and women being ordained Priest, amongst other issues as the Catholic scandal and pray to bring people’s faith and belief’s back to the church…..

Pope Francis only wants us to say a prayer for him… ( )
