Summary
"First Jesuit. First Latin American. And a new pope who chose as his first act a simple request: please pray for me. Jorge Mario Bergoglio, now Pope Francis, is a man of prayer, a man of action, and a humble man with vast theological training. He faces a Catholic Church in crisis, hounded by scandals, yet does not shy away from the challenge thrust upon him. A tireless fighter against poverty and marginalization, he is a beacon of hope for the poor and persecuted. Has a Catholic spring finally arrived after a very long winter?"--page [4] of cover
