PRAY FOR ME: The Life and Spiritual Vision of Pope Francis, First Pope From the Americas Inside the Vatican Magazine Announces New Book on Pope Francis

Contact: John Mallon, 405-819-7521

OKLAHOMA CITY, Okla., May 1, 2013 /Christian Newswire/ -- PRAY FOR ME: The Life and Spiritual Vision of Pope Francis, First Pope From the Americas is a new book by Dr. Robert Moynihan, Ph.D., founder and editor of Inside the Vatican magazine. Dr. Moynihan is often considered one of the "most inside" of Vatican journalists and, during the Conclave, served as an expert analyst for Fox News.

Friends with Popes Benedict and John Paul II, and their closest aides, Moynihan is in a unique position to offer a look at Pope Francis, who has won the hearts of the world with his disarming warmth, humility and childlike charm.

From the very first moment Pope Francis stepped onto the world stage on the balcony of St. Peter's Basilica on March 13, 2013, it was clear this was a Pope who would be full of surprises, winning the hearts of some of Church's sharpest critics.

Moynihan takes the reader behind the remarkable personality of Pope Francis to give readers an insight into the spiritual vision of the new pontiff with a look at his most inspirational teachings on God, Jesus, marriage and family, life, prayer, religious freedom, and more.

Moynihan looks at the significance of the election of the first Pope from the Americas, which instantly puts 400+ million Spanish-speaking Catholics around the world in the spotlight. In addition, Moynihan speaks about the new Pope's Christocentrism, continuity with Pope Benedict, Marian spirituality, and other factors which will influence the future of the Church and the world.

The book is available now from Image Books, the Catholic interest imprint of Random House, Inc. Robert Moynihan is available for media interviews by calling 405-819-7521.
