Overview

What does a medieval Italian Catholic friar and a 21st century Argentinian pope have in common?

The central belief that encountering Jesus can change your life and the world.

Author, speaker, and professor, Alan Schreck, PhD, offers a fascinating look at Saint Francis and Pope Francis, and what they each have to tell us about following Jesus.

In St. Francis and Pope Francis you will see how these themes are central to the mission of Saint Francis and Pope Francis:

  • Conversion - their stories are very different but their message the same: turn to Jesus
  • Prayer - both are well known for prayer and encourage us in the union with Jesus
  • Poverty - their imitation of Jesus inspires us to take on the form of a servant
  • Church - they passionately upheld and defended the Church, and teach us how
  • Mission - their mission is also ours as Catholics: share the Gospel in words and actions
  • Joy - the hallmark of both men's lives, they show us it's possible for us today

Two men separated by 800 years. One vision for Catholics.
