Pope Francis: In my job there are also difficulties, like in all lines of work

2016-02-26

Just look at the warm welcome the Pope has received.

They are the authors of the tender and funny book titled, "Dear Pope Francis.” These children are from various parts of the world and have asked the Pope a series of questions, which he has answered. 

Pope Francis wanted to see them personally and they took the liberty in asking some new questions.

Is it difficult to be the Pope?

POPE FRANCIS
"It's easy and difficult, as is the life of any person. It's easy because you have many people to help you. For example, you who are helping me now, because my heart is happier and will be able to work better and do better things. And there are difficult moments because difficulties exist in every job.”

The children asked him about his age and what it was like to be the Pope. And Pope Francis responded by saying that what he enjoys the most is to be close to people. 

POPE FRANCIS
"Everyone teaches you something about life, and allows you to live life. So grows the relationship with people. When I'm with people, I learn.”

After the book interview with Andrea Tornielli, the Pope published this other book with questions asked by children from various countries.
