About the Author


Pope Francis was born Jorge Mario Bergoglio on 17 December 1936 in Buenos Aires, Argentina. As a young man, he worked briefly as a chemical technician and nightclub bouncer before entering the Jesuits. He was ordained a priest in 1969, and from 1973 to 1979, was Argentina’s Provincial Superior of the Society of Jesus. He became the Archbishop of Buenos Aires in 1998, and was appointed a Cardinal in 2001.

Following the resignation of Pope Benedict XVI on 28 February 2013, Bergoglio was named his successor on 13 March. He chose the name Francis in honor of Saint Francis of Assisi. He is the first Jesuit Pope, the first Pope from the Americas, the first Pope from the Southern Hemisphere, and the first non-European Pope in over 1200 years.

Pope Francis has been noted for his humility, his concern for the poor, and his commitment to dialogue as a way to build bridges between people of all backgrounds, beliefs, and faiths.

Great for all children from age 1 to 110. Nice pictures of the children from around the world who asked the profound questions. We all can learn a great deal from the Pope's answers. The book has beautifully reproduced drawings from the children and the printing and binding are of high quality. As an ecumenical person myself, I believe this book will be well received by those who have any faith in any supreme being. Very suitable for 1 or 2 questions a night for bedtime reading I like it so much I'm buying several more for gifts.
