Pope Francis’ catecheses on the family told to children
The Italian edition of this book for children is finally in the bookstores. The volume, written by Don Andrea Ciucci for the Dicastery‘s web page for children, contains short and incisive presentations of Pope Francis’ catecheses on the family.
Illustrated gently and with humor by Sara Benedicino, all the catecheses are presented in two main categories. Each presentation is followed by two direct quotes from the Pope that show Francis‘ ability to express important ideas in a simple approach and language that even children can understand. The abundant index (24 basic words related to family experience) is enriched by short anecdotes from everyday life in the home of the Bergoglios, told by the Pope himself. Pope Francis offers a catechesis every Wednesday morning. This is a precious opportunity for all children around the world (in the coming months the book will also appear in other languages) to enjoy this beautiful "doctrine."
