In Francis, Bishop of Rome, Fr. Michael Collins introduced readers to the Pope who has grabbed the attention and the spiritual imaginations of Catholics and others around the world. Now, in this Second Edition, Collins takes account of the most important events and development of his remarkable pontificate. With a focus on compassion, Francis has challenged world leaders to be more attentive to the poor, begun important reforms of the Curia and the Vatican Bank, and called for an Extraordinary Synod of Bishops to discuss pastoral challenges that face modern families. This new edition offers readers a concise and engaging portrait of a remarkable spiritual leader.
