Pope Francis examines the future of the Catholic Church in this urgent and deeply personal call to believers to build a bridge between generations.

Since his election in 2013, Pope Francis has reinvigorated the Catholic Church and become one of the most popular global leaders. Now, in this extraordinary interview, His Holiness reminds Catholics of all ages that “God is young, He is always new.” God has energy, spontaneity, and the desire for change—youthful qualities that can be rallied to fight the many problems facing the Catholic Church, and the world at large. In this inspiring volume, published in English for the first time, Pope Francis’s solution to these challenges is simple: a “sweet revolution” that unites believers of all ages in a mission to remake the world.



A YEARLONG, INTERNATIONAL EFFORT BY THE CATHOLIC CHURCH: 2018 will be the Year of Youth, just as 2016 was the Year of Mercy. From March 25 (Palm Sunday) to October (when the Synod of Bishops will take place) to January 2019 (World Youth Day), Pope Francis will focus on addressing and supporting younger people within the church.


FOLLOWING IN POPE JOHN PAUL II’S FOOTSTEPS: Pope John Paul II created incredible rapport with younger Catholics. Catholics everywhere will be interested in how Pope Francis approaches another generation of young Catholics.

POPE FRANCIS was born Jorge Mario Bergoglio in Buenos Aires on December 17th, 1936. On March 13th, 2013, he became the Bishop of Rome and the 266th Pope of the Catholic Church.

“[A] beautiful book of hope and inspiration…Pope Francis speaks frankly about problems facing the young and the elderly, Catholic and non-Catholic.”Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“Enlightening…The interview is extremely wide-ranging. [Pope Francis’s] answers contemplate not only philosophy but such quotidian things as plastic surgery, pets, cell phones, consumerism, and more. The pope’s answers are generous in their length, some being even mini homilies. But all are thoughtful and thought-provoking, of interest and benefit to readers of all ages.”Booklist (starred review)
