Overview

Love is the essence of God’s presence in our lives. Sourcing examples from the Old and New Testaments as well as from his personal experience of love for God and others, Pope Francis teaches us that God exists in our lives as steadfast, endless love. When love is cultivated in our own hearts, it will bear the fruit of all other virtues.

On Love connects us to Pope Francis’s abiding belief that we were created to be God’s instruments of love in the world.

“It is precisely God’s love that gives meaning to our small daily tasks and helps us face great trials. This is the true treasure of humankind: going forward in life with love, a love that the Lord has sown in our hearts. The Lord’s love is our true treasure.”
—Pope Francis

About the Author

POPE FRANCIS was born Jorge Mario Bergoglio on 17 December 1936 in Buenos Aires, Argentina. As a young man, he worked briefly as a chemical technician and nightclub bouncer before entering the Jesuits. He was ordained a priest in 1969, and from 1973 to 1979, was Argentina's Provincial Superior of the Society of Jesus. He became the Archbishop of Buenos Aires in 1998, and was appointed a Cardinal in 2001. Following the resignation of Pope Benedict XVI on 28 February 2013, Bergoglio was named his successor on 13 March. He chose the name Francis in honor of Saint Francis of Assisi. He is the first Jesuit Pope, the first Pope from the Americas, the first Pope from the Southern Hemisphere, and the first non-European Pope in over 1200 years. Pope Francis has been noted for his humility, his concern for the poor, and his commitment to dialogue as a way to build bridges between people of all backgrounds, beliefs, and faiths.
