The new issue of Vanity Fair he sees as the protagonist Pope francesco together with its message to face 2021 with love and hope: “We are all in the same boat, we must become a great human family”.
«We had a dream, a Vanity Fair, for the end of 2020: starting the new year with a message from Pope Francis, entrusting him with the task of opening 2021 with the confidence in a better tomorrow “, writes the editor of the weekly in his editorial Simone Marchetti, «Over the past few months, we have talked extensively with his collaborators.
And today we are proud of this issue which reports two great themes dear to the Pontiff and also fundamental for Vanity Fair: respect and love for diversity, all diversities. And the hope that the vaccine will be available for everyone, without distinction or nationalism, and above all for the most vulnerable and needy ».
On the cover is the serene face of the Pontiff reminiscent of a phrase of St. Francis, «All brothers», A universal invitation addressed to every man and woman to be a great human family beyond diversity, indeed by accepting, loving and respecting the diversity of all. A message that Vanity Fair for his cover he decided to translate into several languages.
A special issue that arrives on newsstands after months of pandemic and in the first days of the new year to remind us that “from a crisis like this one does not come out the same, but better or worse”, as His Holiness recalled in his Pentecost homily.
The Pope’s message continues inside the issue with an extract of the Urbi et Orbi Christmas blessing granted to Vanity Fair. Jorge Mario Bergoglio, 84, is the 266th Pontiff: from St. Francis of Assisi he inherited not only the name but also the desire to embrace all diversity.
