Dear Pope Francis: The Pope Answers Letters from Children

The Pope Answers Letters from Children Around the World.

By Pope Francis.

If you could ask Pope Francis one question, what would it be?

Children have questions and struggles just like adults, but rarely are they given the chance to voice their concerns and ask the big questions resting deep in their hearts. In Dear Pope Francis, Pope Francis gives them that chance and celebrates their spiritual depth by directly answering questions from children around the world.

Gathered from more than 250 submissions, 30 letters from children to Pope Francis are answered in a picture book that feels akin to sitting in on a series of intimate conversations. The letters, hand-written and illustrated, are reproduced on left-hand pages, along with English translations and photos of each child; the pope’s answers appear opposite. The questions can be theologically intense (“If God loves us so much... why didn’t he defeat the devil?”), deeply personal (Ivan, a 13-year-old from China, asks whether his non-Catholic grandfather will go to heaven), or casual and blunt (“You are not very young anymore,” begins one from Dutch twins Hannes and Lidewij). The answers are rarely simple, but the pope writes respectfully and honestly, often invoking larger spiritual and social concepts while the injustices of the present are often represented, as well: “In today’s world there is so much suffering. And, unfortunately, you know that firsthand,” Francis writes to a Syrian boy, Mohammed.

A beautiful hardback book full of life and joy and colour - the perfect gift for Christenings and Confirmations and for children or adults of all ages!

Pope Francis is the 266th and current Pope, the worldwide leader of the Catholic Church.
