By Pope Francis
“Since Pope Francis's election, I have read his beautiful morning homilies, and their publication is something I've long been anticipating. These homilies-clear, brief, wise, often funny and always grounded in experience, are my favorite of all of the pope's talks and writings. It never fails to astonish how Pope Francis can find something new in these familiar Bible passages, and I hope that his surprising insights will lead you deeper into Scripture and help you encounter God in a new way. I cannot recommend this book highly enough.”-James Martin, S.J.
Each morning when Pope Francis celebrates Mass he offers a short homily for fellow residents and guests in the chapel of St. Martha's Guesthouse, where he has chosen to live. Now, Morning Homilies makes it possible for everyone to experience his lively interpretations of Scripture and his uncanny capacity to engage his listeners, capturing the tenor of daily life.
