Our Father: reflections on the Lord's Prayer : a conversation with Marco Pozza
First U.S. edition.
National Bestseller! Pope Francis provides new insights into the most popular prayer in Christianity, offering readers a guide to living a life of meaning, purpose and strength. This new work by Pope Francis illuminates the most important prayer in all of Christianity, verse by verse, in conversation with Father Marco Pozza, a theologian and a prison chaplain in Padua, Italy. Here Francis offers unprecedented insight on Jesus's most profound words, while exploring the importance of social justice, benevolence, and forgiveness, key elements of Bergoglio's papacy. Our Father: The Lord's Prayer looks to address the concerns and hopes of today's men and women, seeking to become a guide to living a life that is full of meaning, purpose, and strength. "It takes courage to truly believe that God is the Father that accompanies us, forgives us, gives us bread, is attentive to everything we ask...what if it is not true?" the Pope writes. Challenging this doubt, he issues a call to "dare...help each other, one another to dare."

|display_description||"In conversation with Father Marco Pozza, a theologian and prison chaplain in Padua, Italy, Pope Francis offers unprecedented insight into Jesus's most profound words, as he explores the importance of embracing social justice, benevolence, and forgiveness in our hearts and minds. Looking to address the concerns and hopes of today's men and women, [this book] is a guide to living a life full of meaning, purpose, and strength. 'We need courage to pray the Our Father,' writes Pope Francis, 'to truly believe that God is the Father who accompanies us, forgives us, gives us bread, is attentive to all that we ask, clothes us even better than the flowers of the field. To believe is a big risk.' Challenging the doubt and fear that plague so many, he issues a call to 'dare ... help one another to dare.' With excerpts from some of the pontiff's most cherished teachings, this handsome keepsake edition published on the fifth anniversary of Pope Francis's election to the papacy, offers words of encouragement and inspiration for all who are seeking hope and direction in our often tumultuous world."--Dust jacket.|
