From 2000 to 2013 Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio of Buenos Aires and Msgr. Mariano Fazio, regional vicar of Opus Dei, were good friends and frequent collaborators in their native Argentina. Now the Cardinal is known to the whole world as Pope Francis. In Pope Francis: Keys to His Thought, Monsignor Fazio paints a close-up portrait of his old friend that sheds revealing light on his deep spirituality and the intense pastoral commitment that motivates this remarkable man in his leadership of the Catholic Church.

The book examines major themes in the thought of Pope Francis--the centrality of evangelization, the need to reach out to people where they are, the intimate connection between faith and culture, the importance of popular piety--and makes clear how all are grounded in his deep love for Christ. Personal anecdotes dramatize his warm humanity and lively sense of humor.

Here in short is an intimate and revealing perspective on one of the most exciting and appealing religious figures of our time.
