2013-09-15

It's creators explain they came up with the idea while listening to Pope Francis' answers to journalists on the return flight from WYD.

Francis then compared living with Benedict XVI to "having grandpa at home”. And so they thought about editing a book with testimonies from people all around the world.

Testimonies cand be sent by e-mail before September 30th at info@georgganswein.com
