Pope Francis Book Giveaway!

EncounteringTruth-GiveawayBanner

“Find out how much God has given you and from it take what you need; the remainder is needed by others.” – St. Augustine

Since I’ve built up a large collection of extra books and resources, every week I give some away absolutely free, no strings attached. Each giveaway lasts seven days with a new one beginning every Friday. You can enter any time during the week. Check out my past giveaways here.

Thanks to Image Books, today I’m giving away TEN copies of Pope Francis’ new book, Encountering Truth: Meeting God in the Everyday.
 


 

Encountering Truth: Meeting God in the Everyday

by Pope Francis
Paulist Press, 140 pages, paperback

EncounteringTruth-3DsingleExperience the morning homilies of Pope Francis and witness how he continues to change the life of the Catholic Church.

Shortly after seven in the morning, Pope Francis gives a brief homily in the little Vatican chapel of Saint Martha, in front of an audience that is always different: gardeners, office workers, nuns and priests, as well as a growing group of journalists. It is a set appointment, and in some ways a revolutionary innovation, where a pope speaks to everyone, off the cuff, without any written text, as he would have done as a parish priest.

Encountering Truth is a collection of highlights from these homilies from March 2013 to May 2014. Along with summaries by Radio Vaticana (who recorded and transcribed the homilies) and commentary by Father Antonio Spadaro, SJ, these reflections provide moments of inspiration, simplicity, and a glimpse into the papal world very few ever get to experience.

    Pope Francis in his actions and words has given all of humanity a breath of fresh air. His outlook on the poverty stricken and elderly and his words allow us to embrace them and share. I would love to read his homilies and reflect on his words so I may do God’s works.
