Mark Shriver, author of the much acclaimed book about his father Sargent Shriver, went in search for the heart and soul of the real Pope Francis in the slums of Argentina and the halls of the Vatican. Seattle U will host Mark for a discussion of his surprising, informative, and moving journey and his new book, Pilgrimage: My Search for the Real Pope Francis. Please join us for a free event with Mark Shriver, author of Pilgrimage: My Search for the Real Pope Francis (Random House).
A down-to-earth and deeply intimate portrait of Pope Francis and his faith, based on interviews with the men and women who knew him simply as Jorge Mario Bergoglio. By setting an example of humility and accessibility, Francis breathed new life into the Catholic Church, attracting the admiration of Catholics and non-Catholics alike. In Pilgrimage, Mark K. Shriver retraces Francis' personal journey, revealing the origins of his open, unpretentious style and explaining how it revitalized Shriver's own faith and renewed his commitment to the Church. Mark K. Shriver is president of Save the Children Action Network in Washington, D.C. Shriver created the Choice Program and is a former Maryland state legislator.
This Seattle U 125th Anniversary Event is in partnership with Elliott Bay Bookstore and The School of Theology & Ministry.
