'In Italy, they call him il Papa, which means The FATHER’.
Until his unprecedented 2013 election, author and friend Elisabetta Piqué called him Padre Jorge. He may have changed his name to become Pope Francis, but it did not change their friendship.
Written in a style that brings the man to life and reveals fascinating and decisive episodes that shed light on his influential character and personality, Pope Francis: Life and Revolution offers unique insights into how the Pope thinks and feels; his work for the poor; and his vision for the Church. Piqué reveals the personal side of Pope Francis – his freedom, courage, humility, humanity, and humour – and the profoundly spiritual influence his Jesuit formation has had on the man who now leads the Catholic Church.
Above all else, Pope Francis: Life and Revolution reveals a man consistent in his beliefs and actions. He is a spiritual leader unwavering in his love for God, whose inner joy and peace move him – and can inspire us – to serve the least, the last, and the lost.
