Author: Pope Francis

Questions from children from across the world are presented to Pope Francis, and the Pope himself answers each letter in this bookQuestions from children from across the world are presented to Pope Francis, and the Pope himself answers each letter.
Twelve-year-old Clara Ó Gormáin from the Jesuit Scoil Iognáid in Galway was one of two hundred and twenty-nine children from countries around the world including Russia, Syria, Australia, Nigeria, who each wrote a letter to the Pope asking him their own personal questions. Thirty-one children had their letters and drawings chosen by the Pope, and he has replied individually to each child,with inspiring, meaningful answers, in a unique book illustrated by the children themselves.
Pope Francis’s joyful warmth and wisdom shine through for parents, grandparents, teachers and, of course, children.
