Pope Francis: Life and Revolution: He's been Pope for less than a year, but it seems like centuries...

2014-01-16

More than ten years ago, Elisabetta Piqué, was granted a rare interview with a new, somewhat unknown cardinal, named Jorge Mario Bergoglio. She never imagined that years later, she would write a book on him: the first Latin American Pope. 

ELISABETTA PIQUE
Journalist and Author 
"He has been Pope for less than a year, but with everything he's done, it seems like it's been centuries.” 

Titled, 'Francis: Life and Revolution,'  the Argentinian author delves into the Pope's style and his call for change in more ways than one. 

ELISABETTA PIQUE
Journalist and Author 
 "Even his list of new cardinals, says something about his vision. He is trying to balance the disproportion in the College of Cardinals. Half were European and about one fourth Italian, so it didn't really represent the Universal Church.” 

CARD. CORMAC MURPHY-O'CONNOR 
Archbishop Emeritus of Westminster 
"I'm sure that when he came to Rome for the Conclave, he wasn't expecting to be elected Pope. I remember a couple of days later, I congratulated him and with a smile he said 'You- You are guilty of this.”

Communicating the Gospel in simple terms and  leading by example: Piqué says these are the Pope's major strengths. Especially with his call for peace in the Middle East and his future visit to the Holy Land. Particuarly now that Israel and Palestine re-engage in peace negotiations.

"Of course the main mission of this trip is to find new avenues to promote peace.” 

By choosing the word 'Revolution,' the book's author she wants to highlight, not just the unusual circumstances in which the Pope was elected, but also the cultural and spiritual revolution he has inspired both in and outside the Catholic Church.
