The name of God is mercy by Francis( Book )

17 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 2,127 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In his first book published as Pope, and in conjunction with the Extraordinary Jubilee of Mercy, Pope Francis here invites all humanity to an intimate and personal dialogue on the subject closest to his heart -- mercy -- which has long been the cornerstone of his faith and is now the central teaching of his papacy. In this conversation with Vatican reporter Andrea Tornielli, Francis explains -- through memories from his youth and moving anecdotes from his experiences as a pastor -- why "mercy is the first attribute of God." God "does not want anyone to be lost. His mercy is infinitely greater than our sins," he writes. As well, the Church cannot close the door on anyone, Francis asserts. On the contrary, its duty is to go out into the world to find its way into the consciousness of people so that they can assume responsibility for, and move away from, the bad things they have done
The name of God is mercy by Francis( Recording )

10 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 560 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Drawing on his own experience as a priest and shepherd for his book, Pope Francis discusses mercy, a subject of central importance in his teaching and testimony, and in addition sums up other ideas--reconciliation, the closeness of God--that comprise the heart of his papacy. Written in conversation with Vatican expert and La Stampa journalist Andrea Tornielli, it is directed at everyone, inside or outside of the Catholic Church, seeking meaning in life, a road to peace and reconciliation, or the healing of physical or spiritual wounds
Francis : pope of a new world by Andrea Tornielli( Book )

5 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 426 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"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."--Publisher's website
El nombre de Dios es misericordia : una conversación con Andrea Tornielli by Francis( Book )

8 editions published in 2016 in Spanish and held by 327 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"En su primer libro oficial como el Papa, y en celebración de su Jubileo de la Misericordia, el Papa Francisco se dirige a cada hombre y mujer del planeta un diálogo íntimo y personal. En el centro, se halla el tema que más le interesa--la misericordia--desde siempre eje fundamental de su fe y ahora de su pontificado. En cada página vibra el deseo de llegar a todas aquellas almas que buscan darle un sentido a la vida, un camino de paz y de reconciliación, y una cura a las heridas físicas y espirituales. En la conversación con el vaticanista Andrea Tornielli, Francisco explica--a través de recuerdos de juventud y episodios relacionados con su experiencia como pastor--las razones por proclamar un Año Santo extraordinario. Reitera que la Iglesia no puede cerrar la puerta a nadie; por el contrario, su tarea es adentrarse en las conciencias de la gente para que puedan asumir responsabilidad por, y alejarse de, el mal realizado. Y a todos que se colocan a sí mismos en las filas de los "justos", les recuerda: "También el Papa es un hombre que necesita la misericordia de Dios". El nombre de Dios es misericordia se publica con un lanzamiento mundial en más que ochenta países, "

This economy kills : Pope Francis on capitalism and social justice by Andrea Tornielli( Book )

3 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 141 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When Pope Francis wrote in his apostolic letter The Joy of the Gospel that the economy of the West is one that "kills," he was immediately labeled by some as a Marxist. Criticisms came fast and furious, not only from financial columnists and conservative cable personalities, but also from some Catholic commentators, especially in the United States. In This Economy Kills, two of the most respected journalists covering the Vatican today explore the Pope's teaching and witness on the topic; the ways it relates to other topics like war, the environment, and family life; its connections to the teaching of his predecessors; and the criticism it has generated, especially from the direction of the United States. This fascinating book includes the full text of an extended interview the authors conducted with Francis on the topic of capitalism and social justice, appearing here in English for the first time. This Economy Kills is essential reading for anyone who wants to understand Pope Francis's convictions about the world we live in and the way he believes Christians are called to shape it

Pio XII : Eugenio Pacelli : un uomo sul trono di Pietro by Andrea Tornielli( Book )

9 editions published between 2007 and 2009 in Italian and held by 39 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Paolo VI : l'audacia di un papa by Andrea Tornielli( Book )

10 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in Italian and held by 34 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Giovanni Battista Montini, che nel giugno 1963 venne chiamato alla successione di Giovanni XXIII e portò a compimento il concilio ecumenico Vaticano II, è un papa dimenticato. Frainteso da quanti hanno ritenuto che il concilio fosse il principio di un'era assolutamente nuova, di totale rottura con il passato, così come da coloro che hanno visto in quell'evento l'inizio della fine del cattolicesimo. Criticato da sinistra e da destra, da chi gli imputava di aver tarpato le ali del Vaticano II, soffocandone le speranze e frenandone gli slanci, e da chi gli attribuiva la responsabilità della crisi della Chiesa, dell'incertezza sulla dottrina, dell'imponente emorragia di sacerdoti che ha segnato gli anni difficili del postconcilio. Paolo VI appare oggi schiacciato tra le figure dei grandi pontefici che l'hanno preceduto e che gli sono succeduti. Non era facile stare al timone della Chiesa dopo la scomparsa di una figura popolarissima come quella del "papa buono". Non è facile mantenere viva la memoria del drammatico pontificato montiniano dopo quello di Giovanni Paolo II, straordinario per intensità e durata. Così, il suo regno è stato presto archiviato come un lungo e sofferto intermezzo tra due capitoli decisivi della storia del cattolicesimo e dell'intera umanità, dimenticando che si deve proprio a Paolo VI l'aver attuato una profonda riforma della Chiesa, l'aver iniziato i viaggi apostolici in tutti i continenti, l'aver inaugurato una nuova epoca di dialogo con le altre confessioni cristiane

Los viajes de Francisco : conversaciones con Su Santidad by Andrea Tornielli( Book )

6 editions published in 2017 in Spanish and held by 30 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Después de haber entrevistado al papa Francisco para el libro El nombre de Dios es Misericordia, el vaticanista Andrea Tornielli --quien ha seguido todas las visitas apostólicas en el avión papal-- ha hecho una selección de los grandes temas que el pontífice ha abordado durante sus viajes internacionales. Italia, México, Brasil, Cuba, Estados Unidos, África, Asia, Lesbos, Sarajevo, estos territorios fascinantes y ciudades emblemáticas han sido los escenarios en donde el papa Francisco ha denunciado el narcotráfico, la venta de armas, la corrupción e incluso la esclavitud en ciertos sectores de la economía. Y donde también ha señalado la tragedia humana que constituye la migración en el mundo. Un peregrino de la paz, pero también un profeta incómodo, que invita a las Iglesias locales a acercarse a los grupos más marginados de la sociedad. Sin descuidar la narración de episodios inéditos y divertidos, Tornielli se detiene en algunos de los encuentros que el pontífice ha sostenido con quienes han jugado un papel protagónico en la historia contemporánea, como Barack Obama, Fidel Castro y Shimon Peres. En una conversación exclusiva con el vaticanista, el Papa revela anécdotas públicas y privadas que conforman un diario excepcional de viaje que permite conocer una obra de evangelización sin precedentes, capaz de sacudir las consciencias en contra de la "globalización de la indiferencia."--Publisher's description
François, le pape des pauvres by Andrea Tornielli( Book )

9 editions published in 2013 in French and held by 28 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

François, répare ma maison! : cʹest lʹappel que Dieu adresse à François dʹAssise dans les Fioretti. De la même manière, le cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio a reçu ce message lors de son élection en mars dernier, à lʹissu du plus bref conclave de lʹhistoire. Cet ouvrage montre, à travers les textes, les idées, les mots du pape François, comment ce fils dʹimmigrés, à la fois simple et érudit, fait de lʹexigence évangélique et de la non-violence, les piliers de sa pastorale. Une biographie complète, qui donne les clefs pour comprendre cette personnalité plus complexe quʹil nʹy paraît et révèle un pasteur qui incarne le renouvellement et la purification de lʹÉglise.--[Memento]

Le nom de Dieu est Miséricorde : conversation avec Andrea Tornielli ; Suivi de Misericordiae Vultus, Bulle d'indiction du jubilé extraordinaire de la Miséricorde by François( Book )

2 editions published in 2016 in French and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La 4e de couverture indique : "Chaque page de ce livre vibre du désir du pape François de toucher les âmes qui cherchent un sens à leur vie, un chemin de paix et de réconciliation, un remède à leurs blessures physiques et morales. Pour lui, priorité doit être donnée à cette humanité, inquiète et souffrante, qui demande à être écoutée et non repoussée, à l'intérieur comme à l'extérieur de l'Eglise : les pauvres et les exclus, les prisonniers et les prostituées, mais encore les divorcés, les homosexuels. Il insiste, notamment à travers des souvenirs de jeunesse et des épisodes émouvants de son expérience de pasteur, sur le fait que l'Eglise ne doit fermer sa porte à personne."
