THE NAME OF GOD IS MERCY
Author: Pope Francis
In his first official book published as Pope, in celebration of his Jubilee of Mercy, Pope Francis here addresses all humanity in an intimate and personal dialogue. At the center of this Catholic book is the subject closest to his heart -- mercy -- which has long been the cornerstone of his faith and is now the central teaching of his papacy. These pages resonate with a desire to reach all those souls who are looking for meaning in life, a road to peace and reconciliation and the healing of physical and spiritual wounds.
The lesson of this powerful book is that the Church cannot close the door on anyone. That it`s role is to move people to take responsibility for, and thus move away from, their sins and other bad things they have done. "Even the Pope is a man who needs the mercy of God."
