Descripción del producto


In this book is found the secret of Pope Francis. --Archbishop José María Arancedo

On first perusal, I find the book is itself well written and well within the bounds of Catholic formational understanding. It is very much to those who understand the nuances, undoubtedly written by a member of the Order of St. Francis. Very straightforward in his approach to spirituality, The Pope states in a beautiful way his convictions on a life of discipleship; as opposed to a following of dogmatic teaching. There are many who wonder is this Pope different from others? I would say no. His love for the church and its doctrines and his personal devotions to Mary are definitely at the heart of his writings in Open Mind, Faithful Heart. For any who would enjoy a tool for invitation into reflection and prayer, Open Mind, Faithful Heart can serve as a great catalyst into a deeper spiritual prayer life rooted in Catholic and Franciscan theology. Far more gentler but no less mystical or revolutionary, these writings have at their heart compassion as their source and a social justice that brings back memories of the early days of Matthew Fox. Written with the somberness of Thomas Merton, these writings never lose the point of discipleship and what it means. A great read. Thank you again for considering my thoughts on this well written wonderful book. --Yoel b'nai Yehuda, Musician

Open Mind, Faithful Heart: Mediations on Christian Discipleship is certainly not a book to read in one sitting, but not because of its density or difficulty. The language is accessible and the concepts are not hard to grasp, particularly for those familiar with the gospels. Rather, the book is a series of invitations and challenges that are all too familiar on the surface. By now most people have read or heard some of the thinking of Pope Francis, and they will not be surprised by what they find here. Behind all the invitations to tenderness, compassion, and mercy, however, there are serious demands and even stern admonitions to swim against the tide. More than a work centering on a particular issue, the book is a collection of reflections given to different groups of people at retreats: laypeople, priests, deacons, and men and women religious. The four parts progressively open a pathway to prayer. The first focuses on the encounter with Jesus through the various dialogues offered in the gospels. The second part consists of revelations small epiphanies in the lives and faith journeys that Christians experience in their discipleship. The third part speaks about the church in its daily and concrete life. Finally, the book ends in an intimate encounter of prayer, accompanied by biblical witnesses who went through all the same temptations that besiege people today. It is a call to faithfulness and a warning against the temptations that every Christian feels at one point or another: tiredness, jadedness, settling into a comfortable life, clinging to power. There is not, however, a different message for each group, but one and the same for all. The call is to joy, but to a deep joy that is rooted in the cost of discipleship. Pope Francis leads the reader into demanding proposition, and yet he manages to make them sound completely attainable. --Carmen Aguinaco, U. S. Catholic Magazine, Claritian Publications Review

Reseña del editor

"The secret of Pope Francis is found in this book." —Bishop Martínez Camino

Much is being said and written about him. To understand Pope Francis more deeply, read what he himself has published—now in English for the first time.

"These deeply spiritual reflections on how we follow Jesus make the perfect holiday gift, and an ideal choice for daily spiritual reading. Open Mind, Faithful Heart reveals like no other book the depths of Pope Francis’ deep faith, joy, and compassion. It is “not just for reading. It is a path for prayer and a guide for life." —Joseph V. Owens, S.J., translator.

Pope Francis connects with people, especially the young, the forgotten, and the forlorn. The cameras show him in Rome, in Brazil, in Lampedusa reaching out to the crowds, holding infants, embracing the disabled. What is the source of his energy, and his spiritual vitality? This book is perhaps the best introduction to what makes the Pope the engaging pastor he is.

The inspiration needed to address the urgent challenges to our world and human living today is clearly outlined in this book. The spiritual foundation for much of what Pope Francis has surprised the world with since his election, radically reframing the Catholic contribution, is found in these texts which their author wished to gather just before expecting to retire—but then being called to Rome instead. Open Mind, Faithful Heart offers an irreplaceable window into the heart and soul of the pope who is changing how the world sees the Church.

The strong scriptural orientation of the Pope is evident in the countless references to both the Old and New Testament. To help the reader, this edition supplements the original text by providing scriptural citations. The language of these pages speaks to the heart as much as to the mind.
