Fr Ángel García Rodríguez founded Mensajeros de la Paz and a free restaurant for the homeless, in Spain. He has a teenage adopted son who was a one-year-old when they first met when the boy had been severely burned in a domestic accident. “He has a father who has learned that when you have a son, the least important thing is that he finishes college.” He is one of the older people from 30 countries whose stories were interviewed for a thoughtful coffee-table book, Sharing the Wisdom of Time by Pope Francis and friends, a project carried out by the US publishers Loyola Press (Messenger Publications, £22.50 (£20.25); 978-1-78812-007-4)
