For the past five years Pope Francis has inspired Christians and non- Christians alike with his heartfelt concern for such issues as social justice, pacifism and the environment.
In The Francis Agenda, Donal Dorr examines the various documents and statements of Pope Francis since he became pope (including the apostolic exhortation on marriage, Amoris Laetitia, and his encyclical on ecology, Laudato Si’), and invites readers to share in Francis’ vision for a better, more just world.
Topics covered include Francis’ defence of human life and of the family; the role of women in the Church; migration and trafficking; his condemnation of nuclear weapons; his insistence that simple everyday language should be used in translating the liturgy; his radical criticism of the present unjust structures of our world; and the crucial need to repair our damaged relationship with the earth.


Donal Dorr is a theologian and missionary priest who has served as a consultor to the Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace and as a resource person for the Irish Missionary Union. He is the author of ten books, including Option for the Poor and for the Earth [which has become the standard reference on Catholic social teaching] and the award-winning Spirituality and Justice.
