Pope Francis answers kids’ letters in new book from Loyola Press

Pope Francis will answer young readers’ letters in a book that Chicago’s Loyola Press announced Tuesday it will publish March 1.

According to Loyola, a nonprofit Jesuit ministry, the book — to be titled “Dear Pope Francis: The Pope Answers Letters From Children Around the World” — will include the pope’s responses to 30 handwritten letters from children 6 to 13 years old from around the world.

The book will cover “concerns about the afterlife; a strong sense of justice, both social and theological; the importance of family; and a longing to be seen and heard,” according to Loyola.
