Pope discusses celibacy, ordination of women, condom use in new book

This is the third interview the Pope has done with the German journalist, but the first during his papacy. The first two books were “The Salt of the Earth” and “God and the World” based on interviews when the Pope was still a cardinal. ;This is not the first time a pope has agreed to an interview to be published in a book. ; John Paul II and the journalist Vittorio Messori had similar discussions that turned into the book “Crossing the Threshold of Hope.”BR/AERRPP-BN
