Pope Francis: The Pope From the End of the Earth

By Thomas J. Craughwell
Narrated by Kevin Gallagher / 2 hours 42 minutes

On March 13, 2013, the world waited in hushed anticipation for the announcement of the new successor of Peter and leader of the Roman Catholic Church. For weeks the news had been filled with discussions and speculation of leading papabili. Now, finally, the new pope would be revealed.

But when Jorge Mario Bergoglio appeared, the world was momentarily stunned. Who was this humble cardinal from Argentina who emerged onto the loggia, choosing the name Francis in honor of St. Francis of Assisi?

In Pope Francis: The Pope from the End of the Earth, best-selling author Thomas J. Craughwell explores the life of Pope Francis, including:

• His birth and early years "at the end of the Earth" in Argentina

• His mystical experience as a teenager that drew him to religious life

• His years as a priest and bishop with a heart for the poor and marginalized

• His unflagging courage to teach and defend the Catholic faith.

This volume will answer your questions about the humble Cardinal from Argentina who has ascended the throne of Peter and stepped onto the world stage. And it will remind you always of this historic event the election of the first Jesuit pope, the first to take the name Francis, and the first brought to Rome from the end of the Earth.
