Be our guest! Ep: 6 of jesuitical

00:00

I’m a purist. Which means I didn’t see Disney’s remake of “Beauty and the Beast.” But it didn’t stop my co-hosts from seeing it and inviting on a Jesuit to talk all things Disney. Alfonso Pizano, S.J., spent 14 years working at Disneyland, “where he piloted the monorail, sailed submarines, hawked souvenirs and danced in the Christmas Fantasy Parade.” He is currently a Jesuit scholastic studying philosophy at Fordham University in New York. This week on jesuitical, we talk with Alfie about some of his favorite Disney moments and what makes the 2017 version of “Beauty” different than its Oscar-nominated original.

In Signs of the Times, we discuss Pope Francis landing the third spot on Fortune’s world leaders list, why the pope wants you to stop bullying and President Trump’s latest executive order.

And finally, please subscribe to and download jesuitical on iTunes; and tell everyone you know to do the same. And, please, don’t forget to write us! We love reading your comments, emails and tweets every week. Leave us a review, post a comment here and send us your questions, feedback, cocktail recipes and tell us where you found God this week at [email protected] or @jesuiticalshow.
