Between the Pages Book Discussion Series: “Pilgrimage: My Search for the Real Pope Francis” by Mark Shriver
He asked everyone to pray for Pope Emeritus Benedict and then, before he blessed the throng in front of him, he asked them to pray for him. He bowed his head to receive their blessing. Has a Pope ever done that? I wondered.
In Pilgrimage: My Search for the Real Pope Francis, Mark Shriver retraces Pope Francis’ journey to the papacy. He travels to the pope’s native homeland, Argentina, where he meets with the people who knew Jorge Mario Bergoglio as a child, as a young Jesuit priest, and as a reformist bishop. Shriver, in this well-researched yet personal book, explores how Pope Francis’ commitment to those on the margins has struck a chord in the hearts of millions.
