Pope Francis continues to catch the world’s attention with his message of hope and mercy for all God’s people. As Canada’s Catholic publisher, Novalis is making sure that Canadians everywhere discover his inspiring message by partnering with Walmart, Costco and Chapters Indigo in sharing his bestselling book Church of Mercy.
Published by Loyola Press and distributed in Canada by Novalis, The Church of Mercy is a collection of writings from Pope Francis’ first year as pope. Arranged thematically to provide a coherent narrative of his papacy thus far, it expresses the pope’s clear and urgent desire for “a Church that is poor, and for the poor.”
The Church of Mercy shows why millions of Catholics and non-Catholics worldwide are drawn to Pope Francis. His humility, openness, invitational tone, deep concern for the world’s suffering people and the infectious joy of his faith are evident on every page.
With thousands of copies sold nationwide, The Church of Mercy is available at all Walmart, Costco and Chapters Indigo locations. Novalis’ director of sales and marketing, Glenn Byer, stresses the significance of this partnership as it “allows Novalis to ensure that Pope Francis’ message of hope and mercy is shared with all people.”
