Description

Este libro, resultado de conversaciones con Sergio Rubin y Francesca Ambrogetti, es un testimonio único y en rigurosa primera persona sobre los acontecimientos que marcaron la vida del actual pontífice. En él, de manera clara y cercana, Jorge Bergoglio explica el desembarco de su familia en el puerto de Buenos Aires en 1929, las circunstancias de su nacimiento y cómo fue su infancia, y cómo a partir de una pulmonía grave sintió los primeros signos de su vocación religiosa. Nos habla también de su ingreso en el seminario, de las primeras clases que impartió, de su experiencia como docente de psicología y literatura… hasta "el fenómeno Bergoglio", luego de que Juan Pablo II lo consagrase cardenal. Bergoglio responde con sinceridad y valentía preguntas directas y claras que le permiten ir desgranando su pensamiento con la lucidez que lo caracteriza y sin eludir ningún tema incómodo: desde cómo debe ser la experiencia de orar, pasando por el celibato o el trabajo pastoral de la Iglesia, hasta los escándalos sexuales o su opinión sobre la dictadura argentina. ENGLISH DESCRIPTION The only authorized biography of Pope Francis. Jorge Bergoglio explains how his family came to Buenos Aires in 1929. For the first time, we hear him give details about his life, including a severe pneumonia he suffered which led him to feel a calling to enter religious life. He describes what the prayer experience feels like, discusses celibacy, and the pastoral work of the church. On March 13, 2013, the former Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio, longtime Archbishop of Buenos Aires, now Pope Francis, was elected to succeed Pope Benedict. He is the first Latin American pope, the first Jesuit pope, and the first to take the name Francis, after St. Francis Assisi, the 13th century monk known for his charity and kindness. Elected in one of the shortest conclaves in history, the former Archbishop Jorge Mario Bergoglio of Argentina reveals, in a series of extensive interviews conducted over the course of two years, the very image of a humble priest, inspired teacher, and wise and adroit cardinal. What emerges is a portrait of a man more interested in substance over style, a compassionate cleric and teacher who has shunned the spotlight. In spontaneous, intimate terms, Archbishop Bergoglio, now Pope Francis, covers topics as wide-ranging as his childhood, family life, and the importance of his first job to discovering his calling and his early days in the seminary. Through his own words, we come to know a man whose actions and words reflect his deeply-rooted humility. The book concludes with the Pope’s own writings and reflections, full of wisdom and inspiration.
