Today’s topics: Pope Francis’ First Press Conference
Summary of today’s show: On his flight back to Rome from Rio de Janeiro after World Youth Day, Pope Francis gave his first press conference to the media traveling with him on topics ranging from his carry-on luggage to the recent allegations of a “gay lobby” in the Vatican. His responses garnered worldwide headlines and analysis, much of it ignoring the context in which they were spoken. Scot Landry and Fr. Chris O’Connor delve into the Holy Father’s answers to the journalists’ questions and provide the perspective of Catholics who are steeped in the Church’s teachings and familiar with the Pope’s consistent messages since the day he was elected in the conclave.
