In PILGRIMAGE, Mark K. Shriver retraces Pope Francis’ personal journey, revealing the origins of his open, unpretentious style and explaining how it revitalized Shriver’s own faith and renewed his commitment to the Church. To help us understand how Jorge Mario Bergoglio became Pope Francis, Shriver travels to Bergoglio’s native Argentina to meet with the people who knew him as a child, as a young Jesuit priest, and as a reformist bishop. In impoverished surroundings, Bergoglio answered Christ’s call to feed the hungry, clothe the naked and shelter the homeless, following the example set by his papal namesake, St. Francis of Assisi.
