Dear Pope Francis: The Pope Answers Letters from Children Around the World
by Pope Francis

Pope Francis, who has penned weighty encyclicals and decrees, has taken a stab at the simpler side of his job with a book for children to answer such questions as "What did God do before the world was made?"

That question was put to him by 8-year-old Ryan K., from Canada. Like the other questions in the book, it was written above a simple drawing - in this case, Ryan's rough sketch of a bearded God standing on a globe surrounded by gold stars.

The pope's answer, written in a few sentences on the opposite page, was that God "created time" but that most of all "he loved".

The book, called "Dear Pope Francis," was a brainchild of Father Antonio Spadaro, a priest and editor of the Italian Jesuit journal Civilta Cattolica who was the first person to interview Francis after his election in 2013.

Spadaro brought the pope the 31 drawings and questions by children from around the world and Francis dictated his responses in simple language.
