The favourite books and spiritual readings of the Pope
In his time as Archbishop, Jorge Bergoglio had a selection of books in his nightstand that may give a clue about the Pope's predilections. Of course, they do not comprise all the readings of Pope Francis, more varied and numerous. But they are the texts that he uses to recommend to those people who place themselves under his spiritual guidance:
The book that perhaps excites the new pontiff the most is The Lord, by the famous theologian and historian Romano Guardini.
Another favorite author is Spaniard Dolores Aleixandre rscj. She is a sister of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and a theologian at the University of Comillas. Her titles most mentioned by Bergoglio are Baptized with fire [Bautizados con fuego] and Telling Jesus [Contar a Jesús]. Click here to check the Books Review page
