Our Holy Father, The Pope

by Don R. Caffery

Who was the first pope? Who is the pope today? What does he do? And why do we need one anyway? The answers to these questions and more can be found in this beautifully illustrated book for children.Our Holy Father, the Pope takes us back to the time of Jesus so that we can learn about the origins and role of the Papacy.

The storybook format begins with the Gospels: Jesus calling Simon, Jesus renaming him Peter, meaning "rock", and giving him the keys to the kingdom, and so on. It follows Peter as Jesus suffers, dies, and rises from the dead for all mankind. The descent of the Holy Spirit, the birth of the Church, and the death of Peter himself for the sake of Jesus also are described.

The Church carries on with a new leader to replace Peter, as she has down through the centuries to our own day. As children will learn from this book, although the Church has adapted to the times, the tasks of our modern popes are not that different from those of Peter.

The book includes brief biographies of some famous popes, a list of all the popes from Peter to the present, and a bibliography. 

Includes beautiful and inspiring illustrations by renowned French illustrator Emmanuel Beaudesson.

PRAY FOR ME: The Life and Spiritual Vision of Pope Francis, First Pope From the Americas

On March 13, 2013, in Rome, Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio of Buenos Aires, Argentina, was elected pope. Chosen by the cardinals of the Roman Catholic Church to be the 266th successor of the apostle Peter, he is 76 years old, the first Latin American pope and the first pope from the Jesuit order.

Now that the white smoke has cleared and the jubilation in St. Peter’s Square has settled, Catholics, Christians, and people everywhere are asking, who is Jorge Mario Bergoglio and what will his pontificate mean for the Catholic Church.

In PRAY FOR ME: The Life and Spiritual Vision of Pope Francis, First Pope From the Americas (Image Books, April 30, 2013) Dr. Robert Moynihan, founder and editor of Inside the Vatican magazine, will offer an introduction to the life and work of Jorge Mario Bergoglio, now Pope Francis.

“This is an exciting time not only for the Church but for the world,” said Gary Jansen, editor of Image Books, the Catholic interest imprint of Random House, Inc. “The election of the world’s first Latin American pope, a man of Italian heritage, means a bridging of the Northern and Southern hemispheres in a way we’ve never seen and signifies a new global vision for the 1.2 billion people who call themselves Catholic.”

Moynihan’s book will give readers an insight into the spiritual vision of the new pontiff with a look at his most inspirational teachings on God, Jesus, marriage and family, life, prayer, religious freedom, and more.

“Many people say it takes the Catholic Church a long time to make decisions, but that hasn’t been the case lately,” said Jansen. “Not only did the cardinals elect a new pope in two days, but the decision to elect a pope from Latin America instantly puts the 400+ million Spanish speaking Catholics around the world in the spotlight. This is an exciting time and we’re all curious to see what happens next.”  (Item #80873) $19.99

Francis Pope of a New World
Andrea Tornielli

In the words, the ideas, and the personal recollections of Pope Francis--including material up to the final hours before his election--the most highly regarded Vatican observer on the international scene reveals the personality of this man of God, gentle and humble. The son of Italian immigrants to Argentina, he made radically following Christ and the way of non-violence the pillars of his pastoral ministry in a country, continually tormented by social and economic inequities.
This complete biography offers the keys to understanding the man who was a surprise choice, even a kind of revolutionary choice, for pope. It is the story of the humble pastor of one of the world's largest archdioceses; a cardinal who takes the bus, talks with common folk, and lives simply. It is the story of why the cardinal electors of the Catholic Church set aside political and diplomatic calculations to elect a pope to lead the renewal and purification of the worldwide Church of our time.

"Brothers and Sisters, before the bishop blesses the people, I ask you to pray to God that he will bless your bishop"
- Pope Francis

On Heaven and Earth: Pope Francis on Faith, Family, and the Church in the Twenty-First Century
by Jorge Mario Bergoglio and Abraham Skorka

From the man who became Pope Francis--Jorge Mario Bergoglio shares his thoughts on religion, reason, and the challenges the world faces in the 21st century with Abraham Skorka, a rabbi and biophysicist.

For years Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio, archbishop of Argentina, and Rabbi Abraham Skorka were tenacious promoters of interreligious dialogues on faith and reason. They both sought to build bridges among Catholicism, Judaism, and the world at large. On Heaven and Earth, originally published in Argentina in 2010, brings together a series of these conversations where both men talked about various theological and worldly issues, including God, fundamentalism, atheism, abortion, homosexuality, euthanasia, same-sex marriage, and globalization. From these personal and accessible talks comes a first-hand view of the man who would become pope to 1.2 billion Catholics around the world in March 2013.

AVAILABLE IN ENGLISH FOR THE FIRST TIME: Jorge Mario Bergoglio, newly Pope Francis, has not published a book in the United States, so this book serves as his introduction to American audiences.   Hardcover (Item #96425) $22.00
