Already his humble witness has made a powerful impact, giving us a glimpse of what is essential about him.... But deep down, who is this man? What does he think? Toward what shores will he steer the barque of Peter?In this book, then Cardinal Jorge Bergoglio, answers these questions and more as he preaches a retreat to the bishops of Spain. Following the spiritual exercises of St. Ignatius of Loyola, he meditates upon the crucial issues at stake in the vocation of a bishop, and all followers of Christ. In so doing, he offers us his vision of the Church, setting forth the outlines of what could well be the reform program of Pope Francis. A rich, captivating text with a strong, uncompromising message.
