Saturday, September 26, 2015 - TO BE UPDATED

Since arriving in the United States, Pope Francis has filled our hearts with consolation and inspiration.  He has also filled our minds with much to contemplate.  Not only is he an inspired pastor, a profoundly spiritual person, and a great leader, but he is also a remarkable writer.  His public remarks, which will total around 25,000 words before he leaves the United States, deserve further study and reflection.

Below is a chronological listing of links to the transcripts of his greetings, addresses, and homilies.  There are also links to several key interviews and press conferences that have helped define his papacy and two recent ones.  Also included are links to his Apostolic Exhortation, Evangelii Gaudium (Joy of the Gospel), and his Encyclical Letter, Laudato Si’, On Care for Our Common Home.
