Pope Francis released his first book, The Name of God is Mercy, three years into his papacy. Today will talk about the theme of mercy in the Pope's messages and the decisions and actions that have defined his tenure so far. Also, how his most recent statements--on what it means to be a Christian and how contraception can be used to prevent the Zika Virus-- have been received.
