Francis Effect

From the moment he appeared on the balcony of St. Peter's Basilica, Pope Francis won the hearts of the people. With characteristic humility, simplicity, and closeness to the poor, he has initiated a fundamental reform of the Vatican's government, challenged a "globalization of indifference," and become the most talked-about person in the world. The Francis Effect takes a critical and in-depth look at how one man has quickly changed the face of Catholicism at a moment when no one really expected it.

Description

Pope Benedict XVI's announcement that he would be the first pope to resign in more than seven hundred years sent shockwaves through the Catholic Church and raised serious questions about its future direction. One month later, after only five ballots, the Cardinals elected the serene and unassuming Jorge Mario Bergoglio, Archbishop of Buenos Aires as the 266th pope of the Catholic Church. He would be called Francis, and known to the world as "the Bishop of Rome."
