Matthew Fox - Letters to Pope Francis

Thursday, September 5, 2013 - 1:00pm

In conversation with Adam Bucko

The election of Jorge Mario Bergoglio to the Papacy marked a series of historic Papal firsts—first Jesuit, first from the Americas and first from the Southern Hemisphere. But most moving was his being the first to take the name of St. Francis. At a time when the Vatican is embroiled in decades-long scandals of the Curia and its clergy around the globe, this act has inspired the world to hope for a church rebuilt in the spirit of his namesake, Francis.

In Letters to Pope Francis: Rebuilding a Church with Justice and Compassion ($14.25), former Dominican priest Matthew Fox presents a series of heartfelt letters to his brother in Christ about the great challenges facing the church today, drawing from the deep spiritual and theological sources that have been suppressed since Vatican II, and implores him to restore the sensus fidelium (the sense of the faithful) and reshape a church with justice and compassion.
