MEXICO CITY (AP) — The naming of Jorge Mario Bergoglio as Pope Francis has inspired the enthusiasm not only of many Roman Catholics, but also of a publisher planning to re-launch a book about him by his official biographer, Sergio Rubin.
"The Jesuit. Conversations with Cardinal Jorge Bergoglio" will be reissued Tuesday as "The Jesuit. The story of Francisco, The Argentine Pope," said Maria Estomba, a spokeswoman for the Argentine branch of the Spanish publishing house Ediciones B.
Ediciones B now owns the Latin American publishing group Vergara, which in 2010 issued the original Spanish-language book.
The book is based on two years of conversations Rubin and a fellow journalist, Francesca Ambroguetti, held with then-Cardinal Bergoglio, but isn't strictly a biography, Estomba said.
The publishing house has plans in the future to translate the book into several other languages, she said.
In addition to being the subject of this and potentially numerous other books in the future, Bergoglio has authored several of his own, including "Corruption and Sin," and "On Heaven and Earth," co-written with Rabbi Abraham Skorka. He also edited "Dialogues between John Paul II and Fidel Castro," written by Pope John Paul II.
Money can be achieved easily but it can also be a burden for those that are unethical or unkind.
Vanity is NOT REALLY a virtue at all.
Many beautiful men and women are completely empty in an ego-obsessed outlook upon the world.
There is no word more cruel than UGLY.
I don't attend church every Sunday, but I wish that there was more honesty and decency in the modern world.
If people would choose to NOT STEAL, to NOT be jealous of people who may have gifts or talents or material possessions that are better than their own, and to NOT choose to do things that are generally seen to be EVIL or WRONG, the world would be a more kind and easy place to habit ate in.
Different sorts of people frequently disagree about different things, but there can also be some empathy and compromise.
I wish that there was more kindness in the world, and less condemnation.
There are many wealthy Christians who care for NO ONE but themselves.
I have many people in my family who are wealthy and equally unkind with their money.
"DO NOT JUDGE LEST YOU BE JUDGED".
"DO UNTO OTHERS AS YOU WOULD HAVE THEM DO UNTO YOU".
I am glad that the new Pope will be from a kind and great country such as Argentina.
I hope very much that the newly elected Pope will provide a fair and responsible leadership for the Catholic or other churches and will follow a balanced and equal plan for the protection of the Vatican and other beautiful churches and places of worship around the world.
As a woman, I go to church about 4 times a year.
I believe in many sorts of things, although I am not strict in what I believe.
Abortion a woman's personal choice, as is the belief in a greater good and a greater spirituality that anyone may decide to pray for or follow.
