Pope Francis has captured the hearts of the faithful throughout the world. Now, you can take a retreat with his words and example, opening the door to a deeper relationship with God.

Pope Francis is a pope of firsts: the first Jesuit, the first to take the name Francis, and the first pope from the Americas. His papacy has been marked by a style of simplicity, warmth, and an emphasis on the heart of the Gospel.

In his opening conference in a retreat to the bishops of Latin America, Francis said, “What moves us most is the desire to thank God and to praise him.” Like Pope Francis, we are all called to conversion, impelled towards the renewal of our faith. By walking with Pope Francis, you will discover the importance of dialogue with yourself, the world, and God.

In this retreat, you will enjoy six conferences that delve into the heart of Pope Francis’s message. Each conference begins with Scripture, and you will then interpret the passages through the lens of the pope’s writings, life stories, and personal example.

In The Joy of the Gospel, Pope Francis cites Zephaniah 3:17: “The Lord, your God is in your midst . . . he will rejoice over you with gladness, he will renew you in his love.” Join Pope Francis in experiencing a joyful renewal of your faith.

I hope to present this on the parish level during Lent.
Offering this retreat just after the Pope's visit to the U.S. and in conjunction with the Synod on Family had special appeal and added to group discussion. I hope to present this on the parish level during Lent.

The Retreat with Pope Francis appealed to a broad cross-section of our parish community and provided the vehicle for deeper conversations. Review by Anonymous (Posted on 9/3/2015)
I watched some of the presentations more than once.
I used it for a private six day retreat and I had adequate material for the whole retreat. Having the Study Guide enabled me to concentrate on the video knowing I would be able to review it with the Guide. I watched some of the presentations more than once. Review by Bill (Posted on 9/3/2015)

Pope Francis' thinking
A good introduction to Pope Francis' thinking. Review by Anthony LoGalbo, OFM (Posted on 7/2/2014)
Fr. Ciorra does an excellent job in this retreat!
Fr. Ciorra does an excellent job in this retreat in developing an understanding of who Pope Francis is and how he has come to be the man he is through his past experiences. This retreat also challenges the listener to look at their own lives and actions and see if we are acting as Christ would want us to act. Review by Dc. Paul (Posted on 4/28/2016)
