The story of Margaret and her friend the Pope continues with Book 3 in The Pope’s Cat series.
This latest adventure has Margaret experiencing the prayers, penitence, liturgy, and excitement of Holy Week in the Vatican and Rome—from the joy of Palm Sunday in St. Peter’s Square, to foot-washing in a Roman prison, the solemnity of Good Friday, and the expectation of Easter.
She learns about Jesus and the meaning of his Passion, visits important new places such as The Sistine Chapel, where she seems to pray beside the Pope, and the Roman Colosseum, where she learns that many early Christians were martyrs for their faith. Margaret’s friends, the Swiss Guards, are watching over her, and she manages to eat (she still loves to eat!) some interesting foods, even though it’s Holy Week. Oh yes, and she sleeps a lot.
