Contemporary reflections on the Lord's Prayer by the hugely popular spiritual leader, Pope Francis

Discover what The Lord's Prayer really means, reinterpreted for a modern audience

In this new work by the much loved Pope Francis, he offers remarkable insights into what the most popular prayer in Christianity can tell us about living a life of meaning, purpose and strength.

Going through the prayer verse by verse he reminds us of its timeless words, and addresses the concerns of us all, whether Christian or not, seeking to guide us while exploring the importance of social justice, helping others and forgiveness - all key elements of Pope Francis' papacy.

Through his eyes, we realise the sentiments in Our Father are very much of today's world, challenging our doubts and bringing us courage.

About the Author

His Holiness Pope Francis is the first Latin American to be elected Pope. Born Jorge Mario Bergoglio in Buenos Aires, Argentina, he was ordained as a priest in 1969. In 1998 he became the Archbishop of Buenos Aires and, in 2001, a cardinal. Following the resignation of his predecessor, Pope Benedict XVI, in 2013, he was elected Pope in February of that year, choosing the name 'Francis'.
