Pope Francis' appointment to the papacy in 2013 electrified the world and injected a new energy into the Catholic Church. His message of mercy and humility resonates the world over, with people of every faith. For this extraordinary book, National Geographic photographer Dave Yoder spent more than six months in Rome capturing the spirit of the Vatican today, revealing the pontiff's public life and personal crusades as never before and showcasing the fascinating inner workings of the Vatican, a uniquely powerful state.

Set against the beauty of time-honored ceremonies, wondrous art and architecture, and the lives of the faithful the world over, this stunning volume is a special portrait of a beloved pontiff and one of the world's most revered institutions.
