Each morning Pope Francis says Mass and offers a short homily for fellow residents and guests in the chapel of St. Martha's, the guesthouse where he has chosen to live. Now with the publication of his Morning Homilies, drawn from the first five months of his papacy, it is possible for those of us not present to experience his lively manner of speaking and his capacity to engage his listeners and their daily lives. Fr. Jim Martin has recommended these homilies—"clear, brief, wise, often funny, and always grounded in experience"—as his "favorite of all the pope's talks and writings." We hope you will feel the same!
