“The vocabulary of the Pope", a new book for understanding the Pope's everyday language

2016-03-01

Phrases like "don't be observers of your life” and "throw away culture” are some of the most popular expressions used by Pope Francis.

POPE FRANCIS
July 28, 2013
"Dear young people, please, don’t be observers of your life, but get involved. Jesus did not remain an observer, but he immersed himself. Don’t be observers, but immerse yourself in the reality of life, as Jesus did”.

With his unique style, he has given new meaning to common words such as "tenderness” or "peripheries”.

POPE FRANCIS
July 7, 2013
"Don't be afraid, don't be afraid. The Lord is the Lord of consolation, the Lord of tenderness”.

March 27, 2013
"To live out Holy Week according to Jesus means that we have to learn to go out of ourselves to encounter others, to go to the ' peripheries' of existence”.

This new book presented in Rome offers insights into the terminology that Pope Francis has made fashionable. It's called "The vocabulary of Pope Francis” and is a comprehensive guide for those who wish to have a better understanding of how each of these words relates to the Holy Father.

ANTONIO CARRIERO
Author
"The revolution of the language of Pope Francis is as follows: Some time ago, speaking at a Lutheran church in Rome, the Pope responded to a question from a child who he said he would like to be a parish priest. This is the key. Pope Francis speaks with the style of a pastor and his language is so simple that it becomes accessible to everyone, young and old and in particular, the elderly”.

Fifty experts and journalists analyzed 50 words widely used by the Pope from the start of his pontificate until today. It is a thorough analysis that helps to and preserve the words used by the first Latin American Pope.
