In Your Eyes I See My Words, Volume 2 contains Pope Francis's
homilies and speeches spanning from 2005 to 2008. Continuing what
began in the first volume of this three-volume publication, Volume
2 shows Archbishop Bergoglio's growth as a pastor and a
theologian/scholar in the midst of his people. At the same time, it
shows him emerging as an international voice calling for changes in
the way the Church carries out its ministry and its educational
task on behalf of children, youth, adults, and church ministers. In
his homilies from Christmas, Easter, and especially in his response
to the tragic fire and deaths of 194 people at the nightclub
Republica Cromanon, we see Bergoglio speak passionately to his
parishioners, challenging them with equal portions of tenderness
and righteous anger. Perhaps uniquely, we also watch as his
audiences, prominence, and influence grow globally, foreshadowing
who he will become in 2013 when he is elected Pope. On the larger
national and international scale, Bergoglio addresses various
conferences, such as the Argentina Press Association and the
Episcopal Conference of Argentina of which he was elected President
in 2005 and served the maximum possible term of six years. We see
and read as his work takes him outside his country to Rome (2007)
at the Pontifical Commission for Latin America; to Brasil (2007),
where his presentation on the Crisis of Civilization and Culture at
the Fifth CELAM Conference ends up shaping much of the Aparecida
Conclusions; and finally, to Quebec (2008) as he speaks at the
Forty-Ninth International Eucharistic Congress. All told, In Your
Eyes I See My Words, Volume 2 is a glimpse into a period of time in
which Archbishop Bergoglio grows immensely in thought, reflection,
and action, laying the groundwork for the mature, thoughtful, and
beloved Pope Francis he has come to be known as around the world.
