Encountering Truth: Meeting God in the Everyday.

Bergoglio, Jorge Mario (Pope Francis).

Picture of Encountering Truth: Meeting God in the Everyday.
Early every morning, Pope Francis celebrates Mass in the small Saint Martha chapel at the Vatican. The audience is made up of gardeners, nuns, cooks, office workers, and always changes. The pope gives his homilies without notes just as he did when he was a parish priest. The highlights from almost 200 daily homilies covering a year from March 2013 to May 2014 are offered here.

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 Anthonio Spadaro, SJ, these reflections provide moments of inspiration, simplicity and a glimpse into the papal world very few ever get to experience. Includes a preface by Federico Lombardi, director of the Vatican's press office.
