New book captures Pope Francis's 'revolution of tenderness'The release coincides with the Jubilee Year of Mercy, which started in December. Thomas Rosica, the English language assistant to the Holy See Press Office, told me via email that the book achieves that goal with its title alone. The Name of God is Mercy is not only the title of book by Pope Francis, it is also key to understanding his Petrine Ministry, his vision of what kind of Church we must be, and an antidote to the tragic situation of the world and of humanity at this moment in history. If a person is gay and seeks out the Lord and is willing, who am I to judge that person. I was paraphrasing by heart the Catechism of the Catholic Church where it says that these people should be treated with delicacy and not be marginalized.

Pope Francis blesses a baby as he arrives for his weekly general audience in St. Peter's Square, at the Vatican, Wednesday, June 12, Camps said he was at first critical of the pontiff, until he saw Francis going to the Greek island of Lesbos in , and returning to Rome with three migrant families on the plane. According to Camps, Francis opened the section, that is directly under his supervision, after he explained to the pope what was happening in refugee detention centers in Europe. Since then, the two have remained close, with Francis even celebrating a private Mass for 70 of the people who work with Camps. The journalist has asked Francis to visit the migrant detention camps in Spain many times, but Camps said such a trip is unlikely unless the Open Arms ship is allowed to leave its Spanish port. The case is still ongoing.
ROME — Pope Francis and his push for openness — toward migrants, Muslims and gay people — may no longer have influence on a global stage where nationalists, populists and the far right dominate the political conversation. In a ceremony at St. The appointments are a landmark for Francis, who now reaches a tipping point of influence to shape the future church in his image. After Saturday, Francis will have named more than half of the voters within the College of Cardinals, where a two-thirds majority of those under the age of 80 are required to elect his successor. Francis has by now made his agenda abundantly clear. Unlike his predecessors, who cracked down on dissent and promoted bishops and cardinals who emphasized fealty to church doctrine, Francis wants an inclusive church that welcomes back into the fold Catholics who felt geographically, pastorally and ideologically alienated.
