Description

Pope Francis lives his Petrine ministry close the faithful.  This is particularly clear with regards to those who, for one reason or another, live on the margins, such as the sick, who hold a special place in the Argentinian pope's preaching.

This work is a collection of Pope Francis' most significant words to the sick.  It is a series of valuable reflections, considerations, and prayers taken from his speeches, messages, homilies and Angeluses over a period of about four years, from his election to the See of Peter to June 2017.  Thanks to the pope's spontaneity, his attention to the weakest, and his simple yet effective language, his careful consideration for the sick leaves an impression on the hearts of people and acts as a balm and a sign of hope that opens the hearts of readers to the fervent love of God the Father.

Time spent with the sick is holy time.  It is a way of praising God who conforms us to the image of his Son, who "did not come to be served but to serve and to give his life as a ransom for many" (Mt 20:28).
