Father Michael Collins spoke to a group of more than 35 about his new book Pope Francis: A Photographic Portrait of the People's Pope at St. Ann Church in Arlington Sept. 14.

Father Collins, curate of St. Mary's Church Haddington Road in Dublin, Ireland, is on a 21-day book tour that includes New York, Boston, Washington and Philadelphia. The book, published in the United States by DK Publishing, follows a year in the life of Pope Francis. It includes more than 250 previously unpublished photos by Rodolfo Felici whose family has served as official papal photographers for five generations.

Father Collins also writes regular columns for the Catholic Times in the United Kingdom and has written several other books about the history of the papacy and behind-the-scenes looks at life in the Vatican.
