Is Pope Francis subtweeting Donald Trump? Ep. 5

00:00

Four years ago this month, the Argentine cardinal (and Jesuit) Jorge Bergoglio became Pope Francis. Michael O'Loughlin, America's national correspondent and author of The Tweetable Pope: A Spiritual Revolution in 140 Characters, has been covering this historic papacy ever since. This week on jesuitical, we ask Mike who has a better Twitter game: Pope Francis or President Trump?

And in Signs of the Times, we discuss the wrong ways to use the rosary, the right ways to use technology and a meeting of prominent Catholics at the Trump International Hotel in Washington, D.C.

As always, we want to hear from you. Leave a comment here, tweet us @jesuiticalshow or write us an email at [email protected]. If you like what you're hearing, please subscribe on iTunes, leave us a review and tell a friend about the show.
