"The Little Book will be a perfect stocking stuffer." --Library Journal, October 1, 2015

“This collection of brief quotes from his teachings is a handy reminder of the wisdom which has reached across a widening abyss to touch the lives of Catholics and non-Catholics alike...Whether your customers use them for daily mediations or quick solace in times of need, this will be a treasure for many, many people.” –Anna Jedrziewski, Retailing Insights

Pope Francis appears to be changing the face of Roman Catholicism. He has infused what some consider a staid institution with openness and optimism. He has faced off against established power interests within the Vatican. He has reformed the Church’s finances. And, most importantly, he has asked that Catholics approach one another and non-Catholics with candor, humility, and love. He has made the papacy and the Church relevant once again.

A pope of the people, Pope Francis’ teachings have been praised and shared by the faithful and nonreligious alike. Exploring themes such as faith and prayer, love and family, peace and poverty, this collection is accessible to all who admire the man and are inspired by his wisdom. Included in this gift-format edition are fifteen chapters on wide-ranging topics including:

  • On Family
  • On the Law of Love
  • On the Nature of God
  • On Humility and Faith
  • On Sacrifice and Suffering
  • On Prayer
  • On Peace

Andrea Kirk Assaf is a Rome-based journalist who has been employed with Inside the Vatican since 2002 and has covered three pontiffs. She is the compiler of Pope Francis’ Little Book of Wisdom and divides her time between a farm in Remus, Michigan and Rome.
