Pope Francis Takes The Bus is the title of a new book from Franciscan Media, written by Rosario Carello, which contains stories and episodes from various stages in the life of Pope Francis: as the parish priest known as Padre Bergoglio, then later as rector, bishop, archbishop, cardinal and finally, Pope.
Following a quirky A-to-Z format, the eighty lighthearted anecdotes in Pope Francis Takes the Bus are full of warmth and humor, revealing the simple humility of the man whose spirituality and concern for others has transformed the Church and captured the imagination of Catholics and non-Catholics alike.
The author, Rosario Carello, is a popular Italian religious journalist and radio personality. He founded the weekly In His Image newspaper in 2009, and has been writing a commentary on Pope Francis’ weekly Angelus messages since 2013. He lives with his wife and daughter in Perugia, Umbria.
The author hopes that this collection of stories will help readers gain a clearer picture of Pope Francis—and will serve as inspiration for anyone seeking a humbler, more Gospel-guided daily life.
The charming, real-life stories from the life of Pope Francis are suitable for the whole family.
