All The Pope's Saints: The Jesuits who Shaped Pope Francis
If knowing someone's family helps us to know that person, then we must understand Francis as a son of St. Ignatius to appreciate the sources of his spiritual fire, and we must look at how the Jesuit saints lived to fully grasp how Francis strives to live.
What makes Pope Francis tick?
Where do his (sometimes unexpected) ideas come from?
Why does he often rattle people with what he says?
What makes him so different from other popes before him?
And why should we care?
All the Pope's Saints can help us to discover and develop six virtues of Jesuit spirituality: secrets to a new, refreshed, and even unpredictable relationship with God.
This isn't just a book about Pope Francis spiritual inspiration. As the first Jesuit pope in history, Francis has brought a radical shift in focus that stems directly from a long line of Jesuits dating back to St. Ignatius of Loyola. In All the Pope's Saints, you'll get to know many Jesuit saints both famous and not who are the Holy Father's heroes and role models.
