Writer, priest and former advisor to the Vatican Father Michael Collins looks at the life of Pope Francis, from his boyhood in Argentina to the daily workings of the papacy and the Holy City.

Collins is author of a new book, Pope Francis: A Photographic Portrait of the People’s Pope, which follows the Pope through a year of his life and includes 150 previously unpublished photographs. Collins gives a rare behind-the-scenes account of life for the Pope, both in his daily routines at the Vatican and during his international pastoral visits.

Collins served in two parishes in the Republic of Ireland before travelling to the Vatican for postgraduate studies. He has taught at The American University, John Cabot University and Duquesne University. He currently serves at St Mary’s Church in Dublin. He writes regularly for The Catholic Times and the Irish Times and is author of a number of books including Francis: Bishop of Rome, Good Pope John and John Paul II: The Path to Sainthood. His lavishly illustrated book on the Vatican is regarded as a classic.
