With Pilgrimage, Mark K. Shriver takes us on a remarkable journey to explore the origins of the pope I know; the pope I met in the Vatican and at the White House; a pope who has put a welcome sign on the front door of the Catholic Church and is challenging us to face the most difficult issues of our time such as poverty and climate change; and a pope who offers us hope, optimism, and the certainty that we can make this a better world. By studying how Jorge Mario Bergoglio became Pope Francis the people, the places, and the experiences that molded this extraordinary leader we can see not only why he electrifies the world, but how he gives meaning to the universal principle that faith is a gift revealed, not just in what we believe, but in what we can do together. Vice President Joe Biden
This fast-paced and fascinating tale takes us on Jorge Mario Bergoglio s pilgrimage from his grandmother s knee in the Italian-Argentine community, through years of success and sorrow in the tumultuous country that he loved, to his surprise election as Pope Francis. Mark K. Shriver finds himself on his own pilgrimage as he comes to understand the role of the Society of Jesus the Jesuits in shaping the charismatic pontiff. Then, with smart subtlety, Shriver shows how the fundamental fact of faith makes pilgrims of us all.
