Direct and delightful, Give Us This Day Our Daily Love: Pope Francis on the Family, shares the Pope's personal and pastoral experience in a treasured collection taken from his homilies, public audiences, and other addresses. Having grown up as the oldest of five siblings, served as a pastor of thousands in Argentina, and now tending the flock as spiritual father to millions, has given Pope Francis a unique perspective on the joy and struggles encountered by families around the world. His simple yet soul-stirring advice to married couples and families is available now in this beautiful volume, offering encouragement and inspiration as only he can.
Releasing in time for the World Meeting of Families and Pope Francis's first visit to the U.S., Give Us This Day Our Daily Love answers the question, "What is the secret to a strong family?"
In a culture of frequent divorce which supports attitudes that are often anything but family-friendly, Pope Francis encourages families to persevere and stand strong. In spite of struggles, members of families can become for one another-and for society as a whole-"icons of God's love." From newly engaged couples to grandparents, there is wisdom here for everyone.
