SHE IS MY MOTHER
POPE FRANCIS’ ENCOUNTERS WITH MARY
In an interview with the author, who was his secretary during the World Youth Day (2013), in Rio de Janeiro, Pope Francis shares his experiences with Our Lady, since his childhood until his present mission as Bishop of Rome. The Pope speaks of his favourite Marian prayers and devotions and highlights their importance in the life of the Church and of Christians; the value of the Marian sanctuaries and popular piety, the place of the woman in the Church and many other topics relevant for today. Going beyond the interview, the author clears the paths that lead to the mind and the Marian heart of Pope Francis and invites the reader to do the same, of course, always using the motherly care of Mary.
