Have you ever gotten an email from the pope? Well, neither have we. In this LightWorkers exclusive, we sat down with Geoff Tunnicliffe, a peace activist and author, who as it just so happens, actually has received an email from the pope.
Geoff says it came as a surprise and that he didn’t believe it at first, but it was true: Pope Francis had invited him to come to the Vatican for a visit and wanted to become his friend. Of course, Geoff hopped on a plane right away.
For several hours, Geoff was able to meet with the pope, share stories and engage in great conversation. Pope Francis told Geoff all about his time greeting thousands of people and kissing babies’ foreheads. You’d think Pope Francis would be on guard, but Geoff got to see his playful side, saying that the pope even cracked some jokes!
