Review

"What if Pope Francis phoned you each morning to talk about God, prayer, and your spiritual life? That's exactly what you'll get in Through the Year with Pope Francis. Each day you'll find new insights, helpful questions, and life-shaping advice from the Holy Father. It's the next best thing to talking with him on the phone." - Brandon Vogt, author and Content Director at Word on Fire Catholic Ministries

"What happens when you combine the words of Pope Francis and daily time in prayer? Powerful life-changing moments! I highly recommend Through the Year with Pope Francis. It will deepen your relationship with Jesus Christ and your mission in His Church." - Curtis Martin, President and Founder of FOCUS

"Kevin Cotter has uncovered inspirational gems from the Holy Father that should be both inspirational and invigorating for anyone who prays with these words. Cotter's brief reflections are authentic, concise, thought-provoking, and extremely applicable to everyday life. Anyone who wants to prayerfully go deeper into the words of Pope Francis will find this book to be a great resource." - Jared Dees, Creator or TheReligionTeacher.com

Great book to introduce you to the thought and vision of Pope Francis. The readings are short - usually just a paragraph. Each day also includes short meditations from the author/editor - great for beginners in prayer or for those who want to go deeper. I bought this for my family to read each evening together during our prayer as a family and look forward to being challenged by this pope to grow deeper in my relationship with God and more selfless in my service to others.

I had purchased this as a gift for a friend of mine that was interested in Pope Francis... thought this would be an easy, accessible way for him to start reading some of Francis thoughts. Just reading through it though, I decided I wanted a copy as well, so I just came back here to order a second copy.

Really well put together. Nice short reflections that probably take a couple of minutes to read but say a lot. I'm looking forward to it being a part of my daily routine.

What better way to get to know Pope Francis than through his own words. Kevin Cotter has compiled a daily dose of Francis' thoughts and teachings, and coupled each day's reading with a short, insightful reflection. These are candid, to the point, profound messages that will challenge and inspire you. (Just what you might expect from Pope Francis!)

These very short meditations are filled with an earthy wisdom that can only come from a man who
Is very close to God. The Father, the Son and the Spirit. Don,t let the shortness of these simple
sharings fool you. He has a way of expressing great truths in just a few words. He has given me
much to meditate on and share with others. I have recommended this book to everyone in my
Circle of friends.

Format: Paperback
Through the Year with Pope Francis is a great daily meditation resource recently released by Our Sunday Visitor. Editor Kevin Cotter draws from various sources to compile the daily readings. These include but are not limited to, various General Audiences, addresses from World Youth Day 2013, Homilies given at the Domus Sanctae Marthae, excerpts from the book Only Love Can Save Us, and excerpts from another book On Heaven and Earth.

The book is setup with a short reading for each day of the year. At the end of each reading is a reflection which springboards the reader into prayerful contemplation. In this manner you can welcome Pope Francis into your busy lives for a few short but inspirational minutes every day. One nice feature of the book is the index. Is there a particular topic you would like to know what Pope Francis has said about? Flip to the index and explore his words on abortion, evangelization, faith,prayer, sacraments, trials and trust to name a few. Multiple areas of interest are covered with titles such as The Foundation of Our Faith, Nothing Slow About the Holy Spirit, Jesus’ Voice is Unique, He Asked for Nothing and Don’t be Distracted there is plenty here to meditate on.

In the introduction of the book Kevin states: “Think of it (this book) as your daily protein shake or energy shot of the Gospel message, according to Pope Francis. The material is set up so that you can not only read the words of Pope Francis but also reflect on their meaning for your life as you consider the questions that follow each meditation.” Another nice addition in the introduction are the six steps to prayer of St. Francis de Sales. These steps wqill aid you in utilizing this volume more fully.

I remember the day I fell in love with our new Pope ... I was sitting in our local Catholic bookstore sipping a latte and looking through a small pile of books with his writings. There I began to realize how much he rocks!! I bought all three books but this Daily Reflections one has become a daily for me. I love it...it's quick, simple, and I am fed every time I read it.

I would recommend this book to anyone, from teen to ninety-nine. There is , in each day, some phrase or thought that will make you think, or change the way you looked at a person, or situation; it might even touch on something that you will encounter during the day or week, that will help you make a better decision. It just might make you feel you are ready to face, with Jesus at your side, the day ahead.

These daily devotions do make you 'think' about the various spiritual subjects addressed. I find them very inspirational. It also allows you to see the spiritual heart of Pope Francis. I am glad I purchased it. All pros. (The only con I see is its binding. I handle it with 'kid gloves' so to speak but it is still breaking apart. But don't let that stop you from buying it.) His insights are truly jewels. I would recommend this daily devotional to everyone.
