Description

From the selection of his papal name to immediate rejection of some pomp and ceremony to visibly and literally embracing the poor and outcasts to that remarkable, spontaneous A give-and-take with reporters on the plane ride back from Brazil, Pope Francis has set Catholics abuzz with a seemingly open stance on a variety of subjects, taking many by surprise. But where does Francis want to lead the church? Laying out his vision and agenda for the church he had issued a call to action to spread the church's message, be more active, and find better ways to communicate and connect with people. BREAKING THE SILENCE Explore the insights of Pope Francis from his homilies during his time as a church leader in Latin America to provide valuable insight into how pastors and faithful, will make an effort to respond faithfully to the eternal mission: to bring Jesus Christ to humanity, and to lead humanity to an encounter with Jesus Christ: the Way, the Truth and the Life, truly present in the Church and, at the same time, in every person.show more

About Pope Francis Jorge Mario Bergoglio

Jorge Mario Bergoglio was elected Pope on March 13, 2013, taking the name Francis after St. Francis of Assisi. In his over 40 years as a Catholic Priest, he has drawn "high marks as an accomplished intellectual, having studied theology in Germany." He is seen as someone who personally straddles the divide between the liberals and conservatives in the Catholic Church. Francis has supported the social justice ethos of Latin American Catholicism, including a robust defense of the poor. At the same time, he has generally tended to accent growth in personal holiness over efforts for structural reformshow more
