Si le pudieras hacer una pregunta al Papa Francisco, ¿qué le preguntarías?
Los niños, igual que los adultos, tienen preguntas e inquietudes, pero raramente se les da la oportunidad de manifestar lo que les preocupa y hacer las grandes preguntas que se encuentran en lo profundo de su corazón. En Querido Papa Francisco, el Papa Francisco les da esa oportunidad y celebra su profunda espiritualidad, respondiendo directamente a las preguntas de niños de todo el mundo. Algunas son divertidas, otras son serias. Y algunas discretamente te romperán el corazón. Pero todas vienen de niños que merecen conocer y sentir el amor incondicional de Dios.
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.
