What can Pope Francis’s personal experience of Jesus Christ teach us? Especially anyone who feels far away, distanced, even excluded from any relationship with God? In down to earth, straight-talking language Pope Francis’s shares his approach to life and daily living with a merciful and life-giving God. We need to understand ourselves and our purpose, to face suffering without fear, and to take a number of honest and practical steps to find the promised happiness we long for.
