Brand new in original packaging.

From the moment he was elected into the papacy, Pope Francis has captured the attention of
the world with his humility, charisma, and reformist spirit.

This one-of-a-kind, illustrated biography of the first Jesuit pope offers more than 250 photographs and 50 removable documents from Francis's life. Written by Vatican Radio reporter Marie Duhamel, this intimate portrait includes his parents' emigration from Italy, his birth as Jorge Mario Bergoglio in 1936, his love of soccer and opera as a child, pneumonia that nearly cost him his life as a young adult, his calling to the priesthood, and his first encounter with poverty as a missionary in Chile that would change his life.

Duhamel chronicles Francis's rise from priest to bishop to cardinal to the papacy and how, along the way, he impressed many people and alienated some—with his courage to stand up to authority and his dedication to helping the poor.

Enclosed documents such as his baptism certificate, photographs from his childhood, pages from a school notebook, handwritten notes as pope, and even a support card for his beloved San Lorenzo soccer club, further illuminate his life and create a lasting keepsake of this pope of the people.

THE ONLY VATICAN-ENDORSED ILLUSTRATED BIOGRAPHY OF THE BELOVED PONTIFF, FILLED WITH RARELY SEEN PHOTOGRAPHS AND 50 REMOVABLE DOCUMENTS.

Size is approximately 10½"W x 12½"H x 2"T.
