Abstract: It may have escaped the notice of some readers of Pope Francis’ Exhortation Amoris Laetitia that the first quoted reference in Chapter One, after Genesis, Revelation and Matthew, is to Jorge Luis Borges (1899-1986), the Argentinian short-story writer, essayist, poet and translator, considered by critics as arguably “the most important figure in Spanish- language literature since Cervantes.”2 Francis calls him “the poet” and quotes from “Calle Desconocida,” “The Unknown Path,” a poem from Borges’ first collection of poetry, Fervor de Buenos Aires, published in 1923.
