Product Description"This is a service that the Bishop of Rome is called to carry out, yet one to which all of us are called, so that the star of hope will shine brightly. Let us protect with love all that God has given us!quot:. The title for this book, A Call to Serve is taken from the words above which were uttered by Pope Francis on March 19, 2013. Drawing from conversations, interviews and the Pope's own writings, Stefan von Kempis and Philip F. Lawler offer moving reflections and profound insights into the workings of the Catholic Church including a chapter on the conclave itself where Pope Francis was elected. In A Call to Serve they look at the challenges facing the Church and the new Pope and how the personality and heart of Pope Francis might be reflected in the handling of these challenges. An outstanding feature of this book is the color photos which are included and which cover some of the early life of Pope Francis and include many from the time of his election going forward. A brief biographical list is found in the back of A Call to Serve/.
