Checking In on the Pope

Hosted by

The Pope revealed this week that he takes a daily nap, misses going out for pizza, and hasn’t watched television in 25 years. He also approved the beatification of an assassinated Salvadoran archbishop last Saturday, a figure controversial for his defense of the poor in the face of power. The love of pizza and the acceptance of liberal Catholic philosophy represent a new style for the Vatican. Not all in the Catholic establishment are comfortable with it. We check in on the new pope and how he’s shaking things up.
