The influence of Msgr. Luigi Guissani on Pope Francis

Only someone who has encountered mercy, who has been caressed by the tenderness of mercy, is happy and comfortable with the Lord. I beg the theologians who are present not to turn me in to the Sant'Uffizio or to the Inquisition; however, forcing things a bit, I dare to say that the privileged locus of the encounter is the caress of the mercy of Jesus Christ on my sin.

Cardinal Jorge Bergoglio, SJ (now Pope Francis). In this book chapter and this book review, Cardinal Bergoglio discusses the influence of Communion and Liberation Founder, Msgr. Luigi Guissani, on his priesthood and his personhood.
