"Dear friends, I embrace all of you in the Lord and I entrust you to the maternal care of Mary Immaculate, Patroness of the United States. I will pray for you and your families, and I ask you, please, to pray for me. May God bless you all. God bless America!" Pope Francis

-Midwest Book Review
"This small book is packed with memorable and profound quotes from Pope Francis's 2015 trip to the United States. While there has been much commentary on what Pope Francis has said, perhaps it is best to read his own words and reflect on this historic visit. Part prayer book, part historical document, this would be a great resource for any personal library."
- Michael A. Cerbo II, Catholic Library Association Review
"a nice compendium of provocative excerpts from various talks given by the Pope."
