A powerful and inspirational look at the Holy Father…

When Jorge Mario Bergoglio was elected Pope on March 13, 2013, few knew what to expect from the first Pope to come from Latin American and the first to adopt the name of St. Francis of Assisi, the great defender of the poor to whom Christ gave the command, “Rebuild my church, for it is falling into ruins.”

Within days it was clear that Francis was a Pope unlike any other. An exuberant, charismatic figure dedicated to openness, inclusion, and living the gospel of humility, compassion, and service to others, Pope Francis has thrilled, inspired, and touched people of all faiths around the world.

Now, Easton Press presents the inspiring illustrated tribute – Pope Francis: A Photographic Portrait of the People's Pope, an exclusive, leather-bound Collector Edition.

An intimate look at the Pope.


Rich with wonder, wisdom, and insights into the papacy and the Catholic faith, Pope Francis: A Photographic Portrait of the People's Pope takes the reader into the life, character, work, and message of the beloved Pope.

The extraordinary images – over 250 published here for the first time – could only have been taken by Pope Francis's official photographer, Rodolfo Felici, whose family has been photographing the Popes since the 19th century.

From the Pope's private daily prayers to his leading services on Catholic Holy Days, meeting with world leaders, visiting hospitals and prisons to wash the feet of the ill and condemned, and moving with obvious joy among enthusiastic crowds of ordinary people around the world, these photographs capture events, details, and aspects of Francis' character that the television cameras mostly miss.

The accompanying text by Father Michael Collins, renowned journalist, author, and former Vatican adviser, provides a biography of Jose Mario Bergoglio, an insider's account of how he was elected Pope, and fascinating background on the history, symbolism, and significance of the Papacy.
