You will know by now that we have just published The Church of Mercy. This is a collection of Pope Francis’ speeches, homilies, and papers presented during the first year of his papacy and is the first Vatican-authorized book detailing his vision for the Catholic Church.
Here’s the deal. At Loyola Press, we want to get the Pope’s message into as many hands as possible and so we’re asking people to please buy this book in its first week of sales. Our hope is that, if enough people order it from Barnes & Noble, Amazon or a major independent bookstore we might just be able to crack the bestseller lists and that would mean many more people becoming aware of the book.
We are so committed to this book, that we’re offering you a third copy free if you order two paperbacks.
Remember, Loyola Press is a not-for-profit Jesuit ministry, so this isn’t about lining our own pockets with gold but about getting the Pope’s joyful message of God’s love and mercy to as many as possible.
