With the Smell of the Sheep

From the first days of his papacy, Pope Francis described his wish for pastors "with the smell of the sheep." In this moving and often intimate volume, consisting of all Pope Francis's addresses to priests and bishops, he shares his vision of the priesthood, ministry, and service to the People of God. Confiding personal stories from his own ministry and warning against the sins of "self-referentiality," clericalism, careerism, and worldliness, he stresses the importance of mercy, of drawing strength from prayer and intimacy with the Heart of the Good Shepherd. In addition to his addresses to seminarians, bishops, members of the curia and religious orders, he also shares words of compassion with victims of clergy sexual abuse.
