Before becoming His Holiness, Pope Francis was Jorge Mario Bergoglio.
In Mark Shriver’s latest book, “Pilgrimage: My Search for the Real Pope Francis,” the author journeys to discover the life of a leader who – through renowned humility, grace and unpretentious style – has invigorated the Catholic Church, and the world.
Visiting a number of sites native to the Pope’s beginnings in Argentina, Shriver details his travels and conversations with the people who knew the Jesuit priest during much younger stages of faith. Shriver also shares his personal path back to Catholicism that was found through Pope Francis.
Host Larry Mantle speaks to Shriver about the book’s pilgrimage, his current work and more.
