Publisher's Summary

A collection of homilies, speeches, and "messages of the day" that brings together Pope Francis' wisdom on finding happiness in the here and now

For Pope Francis, appreciating our everyday lives is a spiritual undertaking. Joy is a divine attribute, and creating joy around us is part of faith. Every homily and speech in this book delivers a key lesson in warm, engaging language - accessible to believers and nonbelievers alike - and instructs listeners on finding love and happiness in the chaotic and frustrating real world.

Along the way, Pope Francis discusses the importance of women's rights, talks about how the love of sports can create a sense of community, and explains why we must fight against discrimination. He weaves in personal stories and anecdotes from his own life, including observations on his parents and why flawed families make you a better person. The core ideas of his papacy - mercy, support for marginalized people, and diplomacy - shine through.
