The new documentary ‘Pope Francis in His Own Words’ debuted in the Vatican on Tuesday.
Produced by TV news agency Rome Reports and with collaboration from the Mideast Theological Forum of Chicago, the 46-minute documentary, through filmed accounts, allows one to experience the Pope’s testimony about his family, his vocation and his vision of the Church.
The heartwarming account also shares about how his grandmother influenced his faith, and recalls how he discovered his vocation to the priesthood. It takes one also inside the places in Argentina which were significant in young Jorge’s life, where he dreamed, where he experienced forgiveness.
For instance, one was able to see the home where Jorge Mario Bergoglio was born, his school, and the church where he discerned he was being called to be a priest.
Along with these personal touches, the documentary includes key events of his pontificate, particularly emotional moments during his Apostolic Visit to the United States in Sept. 2014, including the warm welcome he received when speaking to the U.S. Congress and to the U.N and at the World Meeting of Families.
At various times during his pontificate, Francis shared personal details about himself and anecdotes about his life. This documentary brought together these tender moments, especially those mentioned during General Audiences, Angelus addresses, and while meeting with different people in the Vatican and while traveling.
