Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0814646670, Paperback)

During his historic visit to the United States in October 2015, Pope Francis encouraged the nation’s bishops to avoid harsh and divisive language, reminding instead that “only the enduring allure of goodness and love remains truly convincing.” These words provide as fine a summary of the Holy Father’s visit (and of Jorge Bergoglio’s papal ministry) as will be found anywhere. In Washington, New York, and Philadelphia, Pope Francis touched the hearts and consciences of Catholics, as well as people of all faiths or no faith, by the power of his gentle witness.
The many addresses and homilies offered by the Pope were more than anyone could digest in a few short days. This handy volume gathers all of these texts in a single, inexpensive resource, making them accessible for reflection, study, or prayer by individuals or groups. Included here are his
• homily for canonization of St. Junípero Serra
• address to the Joint Session of Congress
• greeting to a group of homeless people in New York City
• address to the United Nations General Assembly
• prayer at Ground Zero
• extemporaneous address at the Festival of Families
• words to victims of sexual abuse
• address to inmates at a Philadelphia prison
• and much more.
This book will serve as a powerful reminder to any reader of “the allure of goodness and love” that America experienced through the presence of Pope Francis.
