ROME REPORTS' “Pope Francis In His Own Words” premieres in the Vatican


To understand a leader it is essential to know his past. That is exactly what the new documentary by ROME REPORTS and the Midwest Theological Forum does. It was presented by Cardinal Santos Abril at the Vatican in an event that was attended by many ambassadors and other authorities.

"The footage of this documentary shows moments in the life of the pope when he was in Argentina, Rome, and other countries he visited, where he speaks about himself and what he has done in the past three years.”

The documentary compiles the most important quotes that the pope has said about himself. Quotes that sometimes have been overlooked by the media, but that reveal many interesting details about his personal life. 

Director, "Pope Francis In His Own Words”
"These details from the past help us understand the present. They allow us to understand why the pope behaves in certain ways or why he makes certain decisions. His figure is better understood when you take a look at his past.”

Pope Francis reveals details about his childhood, the mark that his mother and grandmother left on him, and the things they taught him that shaped his personality. 

He also talks about crucial moments in his life, like September 21, 1953.

Director "El Papa Francisco visto por sí mismo”
"I think that the documentary is especially important in the light of the next synod about priestly vocations. It is an important issue for the Church; one that young people will use as a template. Understanding and assessing the pope's vocation is a model for new generations.”

This is what Pope Francis thinks, remembers, and says about himself: his autobiography in front of the cameras. All this, for the first time, is shown in a documentary in English and Spanish, that has premiered in countries such as the United States and India.
