words by Carol King A Catholic website has created what is the first cartoon animation of Pope Francis. The site has made a four-minute animation called ‘Meet Pope Francis’ that outlines events in the Pope’s life. It is available in 15 languages: English, Spanish, Italian, French, German, Korean, Tamil, Portuguese, Polish, Japanese, Filipino, Arabic, Slovak, Croatian and Urdu. The makers of the video are an international group of young Catholics. The CatholicLink creators of the video said: “Our idea is to help Catholics and non-Catholics alike get to know the life and story of Pope Francis. While it is true that the Holy Father represents all Catholics, he is still only one man and therefore does this in a way which reflects who he is and where he comes from. Being from Argentina, it is natural that many people know little about him, especially in Europe, Africa and Asia. That’s why we have decided to translate the video into 15 languages.”
