Pope Francis: No people is criminal and no religion is terrorist

February 17, 2017. Pope Francis has sent an important message to the Meetings of Popular Movements that is taking place in Modesto (California). The pope denounces the "moral blindness of this indifference”: "under the guise of what is politically correct or ideologically fashionable, one looks at those who suffer without touching them. But they are televised live; they are talked about in euphemisms and with apparent tolerance, but nothing is done systematically to heal the social wounds or to confront the structures that leave so many brothers and sisters by the wayside”.

John Paul II boasts one of the longest pontificates in history, and a long list of accomplishments. There are hundreds of books written about his life and views, but not many for children. "The life of John Paul II,” attempts to fill this void.

"It's a love story. It's a love story between John Paul II, the blessed John Paul II and humanity.” 

The book and illustrations depict 33 different stages in his life, from birth to his canonization. It also addresses tough moments in his life, like the death of his mother and his assassination attempt. But the biggest focus is on the message and legacy John Paul II left behind.

"There's the message of love, the message of forgiveness, which is given to children in an easy way for them to understand.”

The book is geared to kids ages 8-10. But it's no coincidence. These are the children that were born after John Paul II passed away.

"It is a pity if, John Paul II's message, there weren't all the efforts done so that his message would continue to be passed on from generation to generation.” 

In addition to the stories on John Paul II's life, the book also include a preface and reflections from some of his closest collaborators, like his secretary Msgr. Alfred Xuereb.

FRANK ZAMMIT
Author, "The Life of John Paul II”
"I wanted to pass the message to children not only of my pen, but of people, of collaborators that used to work side by side with the Pope.” 

With the focus on his message, the publishers decided to make the book accessible price wise. After its initial launch in Maltese, publishers issued a second edition in English, but are looking into other languages as well.
