The Pope is expected to be releasing a new book in February titled “Love before the World".

The new book released just after the Holy Father’s first book “The Name of God is Mercy” includes Pope Francis replies to letters from kids all over the world.

“Love before the World” will be available for sale from 25 February 2016, in Italy and on 1 March in the rest of the world.

Children between the ages of 6 to 13 from more than 20 countries including Nigeria, China, Philippines, wrote Pope Francis..Here are some of the questions:

What did God do before creating the world? “God loved."

Why do my parents fight sometimes? “They are human."

The book was published by Loyola Press (orig. Italian title “L’amore prima del mondo") –


Fr. Antonio Spadaro, SJ, director of ‘La Civiltà Cattolica’, met with the pope at the Casa Santa Marta several times during the last months, giving the Holy Father an opportunity to spontaneously reply to the children’s letters.

“These are hard questions," Pope Francis said, smiling.

Drawings and questions of thirty-one children were chosen for the book. The Holy Father will be receiving a presentation of the letters by few of the children who wrote it on 22nd of February.
