This one-of-a-kind book is a comprehensive biography of the pope completely illustrated with more than 250 photographs and 50 removable documents. Beginning with his birth as Jorge Mario Bergoglio in Argentina in 1936, the book follows his life from his childhood and overcoming a life-threatening pneumonia as a young adult, to his studies in a Jesuit seminary and rise from priest to bishop to cardinal to pope. The book explores his concern for the poor and chronicles his recently travel around the world. The enclosed documents include facsimiles of Bergoglio's birth certificate, photographs from his childhood, pages from a school notebook, handwritten notes as Pope Francis, and even a support card for his beloved San Lorenzo soccer club. With a foreword by Federico Lombardi, director of the Press Office of the Holy See in Rome, and the endorsement of the Vatican, Pope Francis is an glorious celebration of this popular pontiff and his remarkable papacy.
