“Dear Mr. Cardinal,

My name is Lisa. I’m 11 years old. I feel grown-up writing a letter! My Grandpapa is so nice- I just want to marry him but he says I can’t. Can you cheer me up?




Dear Lisa,

How your letter made me laugh! Your feelings for Grandpapa are so sweet. But, no, my child, you can’t marry him because he is married to Grandmamma. Don’t be sad. One day, when you are grown-up, a nice young man will cherish you and give you nice gifts… like flowers and kittens- and it will be perfectly fine to marry him!

Yours In Christ,

Angelo Cardinal Fratelli.
