Lumen Fidei The Light of Faith is the first encyclical issued by Pope Francis. Pope Francis calls this the encyclical of "four hands" because it is a combination of the notes and ideas of Benedict XVI meant to be his third encyclical on the topic of faith, but completed with additional thoughts and ideas of Francis I and presented with his signature. Lumen Fidei is a reflection on the meaning of faith and its importance in the world today as seen through the eyes of two popes. The encyclical echoes themes of Benedict's pontificate which emphasized the importance of reasserting the truth of Christian faith against our modern culture marked by "relativism" combined with Francis's subtle outreach to non-believers. Lumen Fidei puts forth many of the ideas of Pope Benedict and, although signed and added to by Pope Francis, is seen as the third in the series of encyclicals where Pope Benedict presented his ideas about faith. In talking about the importance of faith in the world today Pope Francis says "faith sees things as Jesus himself sees them and enables us to grasp reality's deepest meaning and to see how much God loves this world". Lumen Fidei is a paperback book with 88 pages containing the full text of this first encyclical of Pope Francis.
