'Guarire dalla corruzione' (Recovering from Corruption) and 'Umilta, la strada verso Dio (Humility: The Road towards God) are the titles of the first two books written by the Pope Francis and published in Italian. Both texts were written in Spanish in 2006 when he was Archbishop of Buenos Aires, drawing upon the spirituality expressed by St. Ignatius of Loyola in his 'Spiritual Exercises' to describe the profound mechanism of corruption in society, including the Church, and to note solutions, among which is the need for an ecclesial life characterized by fraternal charity.
