pope-francis2-300x187This version of The Weekly Francis covers material released in the last week from 24 April 2014 to 17 May 2014.

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.
