The Holy Father says he hopes that his words will not be final, because as Frodo, the protagonist of Tolkien’s “Lord of the Rings” says, “tales never end."

A book of essays has been published by Vatican Publishing House, with Pope Francis writing the afterword. The essayists are writers, artists, theologians, and journalists who came together to reflect on the theme of the Pope’s 2020 message for the World Day of Communications: storytelling.

La Tessitura del Mondo (The weaving of the world) gathers the reflections of about 44 writers in 240 pages, edited by Andrea Monda, the Director of the Osservatore Romano.
