An encyclical, or papal letter, is one of the most important formal documents from the Vatican and in this special paperback edition, with a foreword by Scott Hahn, Pope Francis issues his first, reflecting on the nature of belief and the need for a renewal of faith for a bright future of charity and love for all.
Pope Francis has spoken of Lumen Fidei as the work of "four hands," his own and those of Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI. This highly anticipated encyclical begun by the previous Pope and completed by the new leader of the Catholic Church explores the need for a renewal in our universal commitments to truth and love. "The light of Faith: this is how the Church's tradition speaks of the great gift brought by Jesus," the Pope writes. "In John's Gospel, Christ says of himself: 'I have come as light into the world, that whoever believes in me may not remain in darkness.'" Here is an illuminating work, an invitation to lead a more spiritual and faith based life, a reminder that with faith comes healing and with healing comes heaven on earth.
