Catholic World News - May 13, 2014

The Italian newspaper Corriere della Sera has published The Library of Pope Francis, an 11-volume collection of books particularly esteemed by the Pontiff.

Four of the authors-- St. Ignatius of Loyola, St. Peter Faber, Cardinal Henri de Lubac, and Father Gerard Manley Hopkins-- are Jesuits.

Other authors in the collection include St. Augustine, the English novelists Msgr. Robert Hugh Benson and Ethel Mannin, the Russian novelist Fyodor Dostoyevsky, the Argentine short-story writer Jorge Luis Borges, the German poet Friedrich Hölderlin, and the Italian poet Nino Costa.
