The Weekly Francis is a compilation of the Holy Father’s writings, speeches, etc which I also post at Jimmy Akin’s The Weekly Francis. Jimmy Akin came up with this idea when he started “The Weekly Benedict” and I have taken over curation of it.
This version of The Weekly Francis covers material released in the last week from 5 to 14 July 2013.
- 11 July 2013 – On the Jurisdiction of Judicial Authorities of Vatican City State in Criminal Matters
- 5 July 2013 – Blessing of the new statue of St Michael the Archangel in the Vatican Gardens
- 6 July 2013 – To participants in the closing session of the diocesan phase of the process of Beatification of the Servant of God Cardinal François Xavier Nguyên Van Thuân
- “We pray for a heart which will embrace immigrants. God will judge us upon how we have treated the most needy.” @pontifex, 27 June 2013
- “Christians are always full of hope; they should never get discouraged.” @pontifex, 27 June 2013
- “If we wish to follow Christ closely, we cannot choose an easy, quiet life. It will be a demanding life, but full of joy.” @pontifex, 27 June 2013
- “Lord, grant us the grace to weep over our indifference, over the cruelty that is in the world and in ourselves.” @pontifex, 27 June 2013

Note: Due to problems with using copyrighted material from the Vatican the eBook version of The Weekly Francis has been suspended. For users of the previous ebook volume I have some suggestions for alternatives on how to best read these documents especially on mobile platforms.
