A Note from Fr. Frank DeSiano, CSP:


This is a very special program for prisoners...a way to encourage them along their difficult path of reform, as they struggle with isolation, fear, uncertainty, and their questions about God. Pope Francis has written powerful words to prisoners. As you know, he wants all the church to “go out to the margins”—and few people are as marginalized as prisoners, especially in the particularly harsh and hopeless system we have developed in the United States (often for the profit of corporations and individuals). This book will help prisoners leave prison with visions and hopes that spring from our Catholic faith. Consider sponsoring a book so we can send it to a prisoner. If you are able, consider sponsoring 10 books we can send to chaplains for them to distribute. I can imagine prisoners smiling broadly as they receive a special and unexpected gift. Thank you for your loving kindness to some of America’s most forgotten people.

Pope Francis has a special place in his heart for men and women in prison. He was a frequent visitor to prisoners when he lived in Argentina, a practice he continues as pope. He continues to make phone calls to people imprisoned in Argentina, and he finds time to read and reply to letters written to him from prisoners all over the world. Wherever he travels, Pope Francis makes sure to visit people in prison. After his visits, Pope Francis thinks: “Why is he there and I am not, seeing that we share the same weaknesses? This is a mystery that makes me pray and makes me draw close to inmates.” This is a little book of the thoughts Pope Francis has shared with women and men in prison, and that he wants to share with you, so you have hope and courage. Meditations are offered in both English and Spanish.
