I already have my own copy of this. How about you? I will not attempt to talk about it much for I will let the book do the talking, and I hope you will have it very soon so you, too, will cherish and put into flaming action the words of the Successor of St. Peter, Santo Padre Francis.
These two paragraphs shown below are from the FOREWORD of the book by Don Padre Salvatore Putzu, SDB, the founder and General Manager of Word and Life Publications:
""On a Mission of Mercy and Compassion" is neither a coffee table book nor a scholarly records of all that transpired during the Pastoral Visit of the Holy Father Pope Francis. Rather, it is an attempt to offer to as many Filipinos as possible the texts of the Homilies and Addresses/ Speeches of Pope Francis, together with a series of "Study Aids," such as a subject index, a topical collection of a selection of his statements, and a methodology to be used in reflecting fruitfully on the important messages that he addressed to different audiences during his Pastoral Visit. (Emphasis mine.)"
"Such is the lasting legacy left behind by Pope Francis. This book contains the blueprint of a civil society and a Church revitalized and motivated by faith, hope, and love, as a "Bayang Pinili ng Diyos" should be. It is up to us now to make this "blueprint" a wonderful, lasting reality."
And here are the words of His Eminence Luis Antonio G. Cardinal Tagle, Apostolic Nuncio to the Philippines Archbishop Guiseppe Pinto, CBCP President Archbishop Socrates B. Villegas, and Rev. Fr. Catalino G. Arevalo S.J. about the book. Also included are the contact numbers of Word and Life Publications if you wish to order your copy from them.
