When children started sending letters to Pope Francis, the team at Loyola Press asked if they could gather the letters and asked the Holy Father if they could share his answers in a book. And he said yes (actually “¡Si!”). Over 259 letters were received from 26 countries on six continents. They were written in 14 different languages and the children writing them didn’t hold back. As Pope Francis himself said, “These questions are tough!” The following is one of the entries included in the book.
Loyola Press is a nonprofit Jesuit Ministry dedicated to service in education and spiritual growth since its founding in 1912. Online and in print, Loyola Press supports children’s faith formation and the spiritual development of adults on a wide variety of topics including prayer, Catholic life, and Ignatian Spirituality.
