A Wound of Hope: Remembering Those Who Have Gone Before Us
A Wound Full of Hope: Remembering Those Who Have Gone Before Us
Pope Francis
[Paper Back]

A Wound Full of Hope is a collection of the most significant words of Pope Francis about our dear ones who have passed away. It also includes some images taken during his visits and apostolic journeys. It is a small companion to reflect on death and life in times of mourning and the loss of our loved ones. The preface is by José Tolentino de Mendonça, Cardinal Archivist and Librarian of the Holy Roman Church.

'The Lord tells us to be prepared for the meeting; death is an encounter: it is He who comes to visit us, it is He who comes to take us by the hand and take us with him. I wish this simple sermon was a funeral notice! It is simply the Gospel; it is simply life, simply saying to each other: we are all vulnerable and we all have a door that the Lord will one day knock on.'

―Pope Francis
