10 of Pope Francis’ favorite books

POPE FRANCIS
Share

Which books on the pope’s reading list have you read? Which would you like to read?

Looking for something new to read to make the rest of this season of Lent a spiritually enriching and productive one? Or are you just looking for a good book?

In either case, you may want to consult the Supreme Pontiff of the Catholic Church, to find out which books have influenced his spiritual life, inspired and simply entertained him. For Pope Francis, a former literature professor who never watches television, books have been and continue to be an important part of his life’s journey.

Fortunately, you don’t need a private audience with Pope Francis to get his reading recommendations. The Italian newspaper Corriere della Sera has published an 11-volume series of the pope’s favorite books. The website Favobook.com has also gone through his speeches, interviews, and his writing, to help us come up with this tidy top 10 booklist of Pope Francis’ recommended reading, which will take you well beyond Lent.

Continue to next page to see the list of the top 10.
