About this Book:
The visit of Pope Francis to the United States was a time of grace. Whether he spoke to an individual or a crowd of thousands, he showed us how to reach out to others with God's love and mercy, especially during the Extraordinary Jubilee of Mercy.
Now those who wish to savor the most soul-stirring aspects of the Pope's journey can do so with this prayerfully crafted collection. Arranged by topic, these excerpts from Pope Francis' talks will help all believers reflect on his words and be moved to do what they can to make the Gospel and the works of mercy a strong force in their own daily lives.
Allow this beloved Pope to continue to speak to you and to those you love!
"Dear friends, I embrace all of you in the Lord and I entrust you to the maternal care of Mary Immaculate, Patroness of the United States. I will pray for you and your families, and I ask you, please, to pray for me. May God bless you all. God bless America!"

What Are People Saying about this Title?
-Midwest Book Review
"This small book is packed with memorable and profound quotes from Pope Francis's 2015 trip to the United States. While there has been much commentary on what Pope Francis has said, perhaps it is best to read his own words and reflect on this historic visit. ? Part prayer book, part historical document, ?this would be a great resource for any personal library."
- Michael A. Cerbo II, Catholic Library Association Review
"a nice compendium of provocative excerpts from various talks given by the Pope."
-Catholic Press Association 3rd Place Award Winner 2016
