Pope Francis: A Guide to God's Time
Pope Francis has said that when you enter a church or chapel and devote time to prayer you are entering into God's time. In "Pope Francis: A Guide to God's Time," the pope's reflections on the Bible readings from Mass lead readers through the Catholic Church's liturgical year -- it's seasons, times of preparation and times of special celebration. The 91 full-color photographs in the book show the pope living what he preaches, bringing God's love and mercy to those in need. The book offers visual highlights of his first 14 months as pope -- from his election night appearance on the balcony of St. Peter's Basilica in March 2013 through his visit to the Western Wall in Jerusalem in May 2014. While providing an overview of the liturgical year, it also offers an introduction to the biblical themes Pope Francis sees as being most important for Christians today: the abundance of God's love and mercy; the danger of gossip; and the need to meet people where they are, listen to them and help them. The richly illustrated presentation offers answers to people asking how to pray and how to read the Bible. The guide also responds to the questions: What does Pope Francis say about prayer, mercy and judgment? How does one live a Christian life?
