Each morning Pope Francis says Mass and offers a short homily for fellow residents and guests in the chapel of St. Martha's Guesthouse, where he has chosen to live. Through these accounts of Pope Francis's morning homilies offered at daily Mass from July to November 2014, it is now possible for those not present to experience and enjoy his unforgettable reflections on the gospel, his lively manner of speaking, and his capacity to engage his listeners and their daily lives with the joy of the gospel message. "Each morning since Pope Francis's election, I have read his beautiful morning homilies, and their publication is something I've long been anticipating. These homilies--clear, brief, wise, often funny and always grounded in experience, are my favourite of all of the pope's talks and writings. It never fails to astonish how Pope Francis can find something new in these familiar Bible passages, and I hope that his surprising insights will lead you deeper into Scripture and help you encounter God in a new way. I cannot recommend this book highly enough."-James Martin, SJ, author, Jesus: A Pilgrimage.
