He is certainly a Pope for a New World. Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio was officially named Pope Francis and inaugurated on March 19, 2013. Every new Pope faces fresh crises and challenges. And in the 21st century, he does so at the head of a spiritual empire that touches more than 1.2 billion living souls. In this new ebook written by TIME news director Howard Chua-Eoan and several expert contributors, TIME has assembled a brilliant collection of essays and photos that celebrate the hopeful future of the world's new Pope and addresses the many challenges he faces. The ebook includes:

  • A profile of Cardinal Bergoglio's life before becoming pope and what his common touch portends for his papacy
  • A photo gallery of the Vatican, the Papal announcement and inaugural ceremonies
  • An essay by John Allen Jr. of the National Catholic Reporter on former Pope Benedict's troubled legacy and the challenges facing the Vatican
  • An essay on "The Life of a Jesuit" by Father James Martin, a prolific author of many works
  • A critique on the Catholic Church by Episcopal Minister Father Albert Cutié, a former Catholic Priest who is now married
  • Plus: one of America's leading Catholic nuns on the role of women in the church, and much more, from the editors of TIME
