Introduction
I’d like to tell you a story about my friend,
Pope Francis. A couple years ago, before he was pope,
I stopped in Argentina on a trip to South America. Cardinal Jorge Bergoglio invited me to spend some time with him. We had a wonderful visit with lots of laughs. I still have great memories of my time with him. Cardinal Jorge is a good friend—he even gave me a gift!
It was a recording of traditional Argentine music that is
sung at Holy Mass. Now Pope Francis is a gift for all of us. He loves Jesus and the Church. He is teaching all of us how to live out the Gospel in our lives. Pope Francis is simple and kind, and heloveschildren. So I’d like to invite you to get to know our Holy Father Francis better.
iv
This book you are about to read is full of interesting stories about Pope Francis’s life.You will learn about what happened to him when he was a child and a young
adult. You will see how he followed God’s plan for him
as a Jesuit, a priest, and a bishop. You will get to know
Cardinal Jorge from Argentina, and learn how he
became our Holy Father.
God always listens to the prayers of children.
I hope you will remember to pray for Pope Francis, and
ask God to bless him and to help him serve us as pope!
— Cardinal Seán Patrick O’Malley, OFM Cap. Archbishop of Boston
