OUR HOLY FATHER, THE POPE:  THE PAPACY FROM ST PETER TO THE PRESENT

OUR HOLY FATHER, THE POPE: THE PAPACY FROM ST PETER TO THE PRESENT

This is a vital book for learning about the head of the Catholic Church on earth, the Pope. Who was the first pope? Who is the pope today? What does he do? And why do we need one anyway? Sound answers to these questions and more can be found in this beautifully illustrated book for children. Our Holy Father, the Pope takes us back to the time of Jesus so that we can learn about the origins and role of the Papacy.

Written in a storybook format, Our Holy Father, the Pope begins with the Gospels: Jesus calling Simon, Jesus renaming him Peter, giving him the keys to the kingdom, and so on. It follows Peter through Jesus' passion, death, and resurrection. The descent of the Holy Spirit, the birth of the Church, and the death of Peter himself for the sake of Jesus also are described.

The Church replaces Peter with a new pope, keeping the succession intact to our time. Children will see that although the Church has adapted to the times, the tasks of our modern popes are not that different from those of Peter.

The book includes brief biographies of some famous popes, a list of all the popes from Peter to the present, and a bibliography.

Includes beautiful and inspiring illustrations by renowned French illustrator Emmanuel Beaudesson
