But will her impulsive manner prevent her from recognizing her true beloved? A disturbing turn of events brings a dark shadow that threatens the life-long happiness she desires. (read more)

Jorge Bergoglio was just an ordinary teenager in Argentina, until the autumn day he decided to stop by a church. That’s when he hears an astonishing call.

But that’s only the beginning of Jorge’s adventures, which take him into the Jesuit order, the priesthood, serving the poor, and into a bitter conflict when his country is involved in a sinister Dirty War. But Jorge keeps trying to follow Christ, no matter where He leads – even to Rome and the heart of the Church! The amazing true story of Pope Francis, and his experience of the mercy of God.
