A new book-length interview with Pope Francis, titled ‘God is Young,’ represents a kind of “how-to” guide for creating a “revolution of tenderness” in which young people and the elderly — both “thrown away” by society — band together to help change the world.
The author of a highly critical book about Pope Francis, entitled ‘The Dictator Pope,’ has been suspended by the Knights of Malta.
Gary Jansen is an editor at Penguin/Random House who has edited books by Pope Benedict and Pope Francis. He spoke to Crux.
The Vatican has admitted that it altered a photo sent to the media of a letter from retired Pope Benedict XVI about Pope Francis’s theological background. The manipulation changed the meaning of the image.
Massimo Borghesi’s ‘Jorge Mario Bergoglio: Una biografia intellettuale’ summarizes Francis’s view of this dynamic understanding of the Christian’s role in the world in these words: “The Christian is called to be a place of unity in the divisions of history, to bring the tragedy of the age into the presence of God who is always greater.”
Father Martin Schlag says Pope Francis’s focus on the good entrepreneur rather than the state makes him a natural ally of authentic U.S. capitalism. Schlag says the pope teaches “everyone in society has to work towards helping the poor, lifting them up — and therefore he is for the good entrepreneur, the good individual who creates work.”
