Religion would be meeting technology as Catholic leader, Pope Francis is set to host his second video chat on Google Hangout live from the Vatican.
Pope Francis to address children across the world via Google Hangout
Pope Francis will be answering questions from children around the world via Google hangout. This would be the second time he is using the platform to converse with people.
According to Google’s president for Strategic Relationships, Carlo D’Asaro Biondo, the pope will be engaging in conversations with children with special needs and disabilities from India, Spain, Brazil, and the U.S.
The Hangout will take place on Thursday, February 5, at 4:00 pm CET.
The chat will be sponsored by his educational entity Scholas, like it was last year when he spoke to students from around the globe.
Scholas Ocurrentes is an “educational entity” created by the pope that uses technology, arts, and sports to encourage integration of schools worldwide, regardless of societal differences.
Pope Francis is truly a fan of new media.
He also has over 17 million followers across his nine Twitter accounts.
