A signature of the pontificate of Pope Francis, the theme of mercy is rooted in the message of Jesus, who tied our salvation to the treatment of the least of our brothers and sisters: "I was hungry and you fed me… Imprisoned and you visited me...." In reflections drawn from his writings and preaching, Pope Francis treats the Corporal and Spiritual Works of Mercy, opening for each a window on a larger theme. For instance, under “welcoming the stranger,” Pope Francis reflects on the plight of refugees and immigrants. This book is one of Pope Francis’s most challenging and personal reflections on the gospel message.
