Pope Francis has explained to British papal biographer, Austen Ivereigh, how he is living and contemplating the Coronavirus crisis, and preparing practically and spiritually for its aftermath.

The author of ‘The Great Reformer’ had sent the Holy Father questions, and Francis, in Spanish, offered his thoughts and advice for how a world, in lockdown, can spiritually prepare for Easter.

Dr Austen Ivereigh, 54, authored two prominent books on Pope Francis and the pontificate: The Great Reformer: Francis and the making of a radical pope (Henry Holt/Picador, 2014/2015) and Wounded Shepherd: Pope Francis and his struggle to convert the Catholic Church (New York: Henry Holt, 2019).

Praise the Lord
