The Traveling Pope
If you can’t make it to see the pontiff as he visits Philadelphia, New York City and Washington D.C. this month, you can read about the life of Pope Francis and the history of the Vatican in these fine books. Or, better yet, plan your next trip to Vatican City! Pope Francis and the New Vatican. National Geographic photographer David Yoder spent six months ensconced in the Vatican to produce this vivid and intimate portrait of "the people's pope." His extraordinary images -- including the Sistine Chapel with the Pope alone on Christmas Day -- capture the pontiff's public life and personal crusades as well as the inner workings of the Catholic Church.
