This is a beautifully illustrated children’s book on the origins and functions of the Vicar of Christ. It opens with the scene from Matthew’s gospel in which the passionate Simon professes Jesus as the Messiah. In response, our Lord changes Simon’s name to Peter, gives him the keys to the kingdom of heaven, and makes him the first pope. Peter’s prominent role in the early Church is also covered in detail.
Your child will be introduced to four outstanding popes from various ages in Church history and will learn how a pope is elected. Get a glimpse into the workings of the Vatican and gain a better understanding of exactly how the pope leads the Catholic Church.
