The Works of Mercy by Pope Francis

In reflections drawn from his writings and preaching, Pope Francis treats the Corporal and Spiritual Works of Mercy, opening for each a window on a larger theme. For instance, under “welcoming the stranger,” Pope Francis reflects on the plight of refugees and immigrants. This book is one of Pope Francis’s most challenging and personal reflections on the gospel message.
