From the first days of his papacy, Pope Francis described his wish for pastors “with the smell of the sheep.” In this moving and often intimate volume, consisting of all Pope Francis’s addresses to priests and bishops, he shares his vision of the priesthood, ministry, and service to the People of God. Confiding personal stories from his own ministry and warning against the sins of “self-referentiality,” clericalism, careerism, and worldliness, he stresses the importance of mercy, of drawing strength from prayer and intimacy with the Heart of the Good Shepherd. In addition to his addresses to seminarians, bishops, members of the curia and religious orders, he also shares words of compassion with victims of clergy sexual abuse.


About the Author
Pope Francis was born Jorge Mario Bergoglio in Buenos Aires, Argentina. He was ordained a priest in 1969, became archbishop of Buenos Aires in 1998, and was made a cardinal by Pope John Paul II in 2001. Bergoglio was elected the 266th pope of the Roman Catholic Church by the College of Cardinals on March 13, 2013, when he took the name Francis for St. Francis of Assisi. He is the first Jesuit pope, the first pope from the Americas, and the first non-European pope in more than twelve centuries.
